“Curd or Cream Cheese and Banana (Variation No 2): This is one you really need to have as soon as you make it as the banana goes brown with keeping. Some of the 'variations on a theme' sandwiches are based '60 sandwich ideas' found on vegan-cookbook website, the others are combinations that I have found to be successful myself. I use dairy products, but there are vegan substitutes available if you prefer.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tablespoon low fat fromage frais (or 2 tbsp curd cheese, if preferred)
  • 1 snack size banana, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon ground almonds (you will need to loosen the cheese with a little milk)
  • 2 teaspoons sultanas or 2 teaspoons raisins


  1. Combine the mascarpone and fromage frais. Mash the banana and mix with the cheese (and - if using - almonds and milk).
  2. Stir the sultanas or raisins through and sandwich between two slices of bread.
