Vegemite. You either love it or hate it. I’ve loved the stuff since ever since I can remember. I have lots of memories of Vegemite as a very young kid. My Mum used to make me Vegemite “Roll-Ups”. A piece of bread with the crusts cut off, with margarine and Vegemite rolled up. She even used to cut me shapes out of sandwiches using cookie cutters. My favourite is when I wouldn’t go to sleep, and I would tell her “Mum, I cant sleep. I’m hungry” and I always wanted hot Vegemite toast.
So many fond memories of the old trusty Vegemite and my lovely Mum, but as I started becoming more health conscious I noticed the amount of additives and sodium in regular Vegemite. I needed to come up with a recipe filled with the good stuff and none of the bad that tasted just as delicious.
I was really surprised at just how similar it turned out. I love it better than the original Vegemite! It also happens to be Gluten-free, and Raw. I hope you try it and love it just as much as I do.
4 Tbsp Black Tahini
2 Tbsp Tamari
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 tsp Nutritional Yeast
1/4 tsp Maca Powder
tiny pinch of Himalayan Salt and Pepper
Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined. Store in the fridge.
My favourite way to enjoy this is on toast with smashed Avocado and Sesame Seeds, so delicious!
