Ingredients

For the cashew ricotta

  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashew nuts soaked and drained
  • 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 lime or lemon juice only (use less if using lemon, ½ lime = 1 tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast or parmesan cheese or to taste
  • sea salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

For the sandwich

  • 4-8 slices bread of your choice (GF if needed) depending on the size of your bread
  • 1 cup bell pepper (capsicum, any color) diced
  • 1 cup Chinese cabbage shredded
  • 1 cup red cabbage shredded
  • sea salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Soak cashew nuts for at least 1 hour. Overnight is best. The longer they soak, the creamier the ricotta will be. Drain soaked cashews and combine with other cashew ricotta ingredients in a small blender and process until smooth, creamy texture. Add more water if needed. Set aside.
  • Heat cooking oil in a pan/skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in bell pepper and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Then add Chinese and red cabbage and mix well. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until cabbage starts to release its water. (Make sure that cabbage is not overcooked and maintains its crunchy texture).
  • Add cashew ricotta cheese to the cabbage mix and stir well to combine. Add oregano, salt, and pepper to taste, mix well and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Spoon the mixture on a slice of bread. Cover it with another slice of bread.
  • Optional: grill using a sandwich/panini maker or under the oven grill. Or you can also toast the bread first and stuff with the filling since the filling is already cooked.
