'Feta'-Basil Sandwiches

Here's another great way to take advantage of the fact that there's finally a yummy vegan feta (my favorite and most missed cheese) on the market...

In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup crumbled vegan feta (such as the any of the varieties from Sunergia:, along with 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, 2 tablespoons vegan mayo of your choice (I like the canola mayo from Spectrum Foods), and a dash of black pepper.

Spread about 2 and a half tablespoons of the 'feta' mixture onto each of two (one and a half ounce) slices of white bread. White bread is yet another version that is tough to find in vegan form - why oh why do companies feel that bread needs to contain nonfat milk?? But I verified that the Vermont Company's organic soft white is vegan, after a thorough perusal of the ingredients, so try that one!

Top each bread slice with two (1/4 inch thick) slices of tomato. Top with another slice of white bread. You now have two sandwiches of 320 calories and lots of yumminess.

'feta' $3.69
basil $3.49
white bread $4.39
tomato $1.67
