Humans put condiments on everything. What would you do if at a restaurant they didn’t give you anything to spread on your toast? Too dry, right? No condiment bar at burger joints? No little packets of condiments added to the take-out bag? Where’s the relish? Ketchup is popular, but could you live without mayonnaise? Would you want to?
It’s all about the ‘smooth’. Creamy – even ketchup – yes. That’s how we dress our foods – with sauces, dressings and condiments. So here we are, eating animal-free, and where’s the mayonnaise or butter or margarine without dairy of fish oil? Right here, at your finger tips, well, for your personal viewing. Made with you in mind – on my mind – YOU – throughout each stage of the engineering process – always wanting to improve your animal-free experience!
So, here you are! Take a gander!

SPREADABLE CHEESE FOR SANDWICHES Textures and tastes like American mild cheddar singles before they were wrapped individually in plastic. It spreads easily, right from the refrigerator. No need to heat – it’s creamy enough so that it doesn’t need it. The large yield was designed for restaurants. If making this at home you might want to cut the recipe in half. Use on any sandwich that you would normally use cold single slices. Veggie cold cuts, subs, burgers, gyros etc. It works and it works well. It’s not meant for grilled cheese sandwiches. We have another cheese mix for that: PREMELTED VEGGIE CHEESE for grilled cheese sandwiches. Makes 8-1/2 cups
