Apricot, Pear and Brie Sandwich with Vegan Brie – bright sweet fruit flavors tucked into a crusty baguette with a soft spreadable vegan cheese – perfect picnic portable!
I am putting out an a.p.b. on these apricot pear and brie sandwiches – they are delicious and they are vegan!
Too much? too cheesy? ha! there I go again.
Oh hey, speaking of cheese, I made some vegan brie!
It may not taste exactly like the real thing, but the texture is there, and this ‘brie’ has great flavor!
I have been hoping a vegan brie would appear on the market. Until then, I did find a recipe online. Actually, several. Most attribute the recipe to The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook, and even if they don’t, they are all the same.
The only change I made was using my newest ingredient in my kitchen – Irish moss! Great as a thickener and emulsifier, I have been wanting to try Irish moss for quite a while, and recently bought some. [This is what it looks like as it is soaking, prior to blending into a gel]. I have big plans for it, and brie was my first use.
Now I have big plans for this brie, but first I had to make a sandwich.
I couldn’t have chosen better fruit to
pear pair with this cheese…
and the a.p.b. thing? Coincidence.
Just like that p b and j I made last year… (p and b for me!), total coincidence.
This sandwich was lovely – sweet and salty and light and fresh. Bright and perfect for a summer lunch.
This brie is spreadable, with no rind to peel! It is tangy and soft and is great in sandwiches or on a cracker. I have a couple other ideas for this brie, and as soon as I try them I will report back.
As I said, there are several recipes out there, but they are all pretty much the same. So I am sending you to the first one I clicked on – vegan brie recipe here.
What’s your favorite cheese? What’s your favorite sandwich?
