Vege Sandwich - Nice and Easy

A friend, recently asked me to prepare some finger sandwiches for her open house.   I made cream cheese and pineapple which is a very easy recipe and one that almost everyone knows.  I also made some Vege Sandwiches.    The only skill needed is to be able to chop vegetables or use a food processor to do the chopping.  I prefer to chop by hand. 

The sandwiches were so easy to make and I had several requests for the recipe.     They are gluten free and can easily be made on gluten free bread.  This recipe cut in half makes a vegetable spread to eat with crackers.  Enjoy...


2 packages of  8 oz cream cheese
1 package of Broccoli Cole Slaw
1/2 small onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic power
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Let cream cheese sit out and become room temperature.  Much easier to mix this way.

Chop broccoli cole slaw and onion  into very small pieces.   For those who do not like to chop by hand then simply put in your food processor.

Mix all ingredients together and you have enough to do a loaf of bread with leftovers to eat as a cracker spread.

 I let the mixture cool in the refrigerator and then spread on the bread.  That made the spreading a little more difficult but it did not require cooling the sandwiches.  I think it would be alright to do either way.
