“Creamy Cheese and Figs. When you need an idea of the nutritional values and they're not to hand, it's easy to overlook some of life's simple pleasures in the uncertainty, so it's good to have the info from recipezaar. 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.”
