Fresh Ontario apples are in stores now!! What better time for some Zengarry apple pairing ideas?? Apples and cheese have always been great partners, and vegan cheese is no different!
A snack doesn't have to be complicated to be refined and elegant! Sometimes it's the simplest pairings that let your Zengarry fauxmage shine through. Like a crisp Gala apple with a wedge of Zengarry Brie and a dab of Carmelized Red Onion Jelly. I grabbed this one at Loblaws because it's the only food store near where I live (besides Fauxmagerie Zengarry of course).
Quite a delightful pairing, if I do say so myself. Just a bit of savoury with the sweet of the fruit.
If you're still not convinced that Zengarry Brie fauxmage and apples make delicious partners, feast your eyes on this!!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a big bag of vegan sausages at the Canadian Health Food Association trade show in Toronto this weekend! A great big THANK YOU to our friends at Gusta!! I made these with their brand new Montrealien flavour which may not be available in stores yet... but any of their other three flavours will work here.
Super simple, and yet, fancy enough for the pickiest vegan. Though I really don't know that many picky vegans.... "Is it vegan?? I'll eat it!"
Slice your sausages in quarters lengthwise and fry each side in a non-stick pan.
Layer one slice of bread (I used my favourite... Light Rye) with Carmelized Red Onion Jelly and sliced, pan fried sausages.
Layer the other slice with sliced apple (I used fresh Ontario Gala) and some slices of Zengarry Brie style cashew cheese.
CAREFULLY bring the two sides together. Spread vegan margarine on the outside of each slice of bread and pop it back in the pan at medium high. Grill each side until golden.
Then devour it with GUSTA.... I mean gusto. :)
For a more simple classic option, try apple and brie open faced sandwiches like these... Drizzled with fruit compote, maple syrup or agave.
