Peanut Butter-Cinnamon-Apple Sammie.

Sometimes, you just want a good old SANDWICH, am I right?! My Sammie craving hit a couple evenings ago...mid-essay writing. I had been typing for the last, oh, I couldn't even say...hence, food was a top priority. However, I needed something quick and filling  I also needed to use up the last of the apples I bought a couple weeks ago from when I went apple picking with some buddies! So, this beautiful Sam was born...toasty bread + creamy and filling PB + crisp apple + cinnamon for good measure = yum. That is all. 

    Peanut Butter-Cinnamon-Apple Sammie.

4. Cinnamon to taste

1. Toast your bread to your liking...I like mine burnt! 😜

Warm, cooked, comfort food (and no, Lean Cuisines don't count...). YES IT IS POSSIBLE! Listen up all you full time/night shift workers. You too, hungry college students--Get ready for your minds to be blown. Oh, and set your timers ⌚️😜

2. 6 oz. silken tofu
3. 5 drops liquid stevia
4. Pinch sage
5. Garlic and onion powders
6. Sprinkle of cinnamon for garnish
7. Dash of bragg's liquid aminos 

1. Carefully slice the top off your swuash and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out  the seeds and discard (or toast 'em for later! YUMMO!). 
2. Place squash on micro-safe plate/dish and cover. Nuke her 5-6 minutes, until fork tender. Set aside to cool slightly. 
3. In your mini food processor, combine tofu, aminos, sage, garlic, onion, and stevia. Blend until smooth. Scoop into squash and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve with a salad and toast.  There ya go. Simple and delicious!

Note: the spices here are totally versatile. Get creative! Not into sage? Leave it out or sub for a different spice. Sweet basil (stevia + dried basil) is super yum here too.
