Open Face Sandwich

As tasty as it is pretty! This sandwich packs a flavorful punch with simple ingredients and minimal prep.

I love it when a plan comes together!

I’m going through my pantry, trying to get creative with what I have on hand and this delicious combo was born! The inspiration started with macadamia nuts that transformed in to a luscious savory/zesty cheese just begging to be paired with something.

Zesty Macadamia Cheese

Macadamia Cheese Recipe

  • ¾ cup raw macadamia nuts, soaked 4-8 hrs
  • ¾ cup water
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

Add all the ingredients to a tall container or cup and using an immersion/hand blender, blend until smooth. You could double the recipe so the volume is enough to blend in a regular blender. (It’s so good, you’ll definitely want more so double it without fear).

Cover your macadamia cheese and let it sit 4-8 hrs at room temp to ferment a bit. It adds to the zesty flavor, but this is optional as the taste is awesome either way.

Fresh bell pepper and even tomatoes highlight this flavorful sandwich creation! But the real star is this flatbread!
