Weekend Improv: Almond Butter and Banana

August 29, 2010 6:10 pm ยท Posted by Nancy Einhart

I set off on a mission to make my first Vegemite sandwich and ended up with an Elvis-inspired after-school snack instead.

I had every intention of creating what I'd dubbed the Aussie after-school snack: a Vegemite and banana sandwich, recommended by a Vegemite-loving acquaintance. But after tasting some of the very intense condiment on toast, I decided I needed to ease in to the Vegemite. Maybe something less exotic, like 'mite and cheddar.

Almond butter and banana on wheat is fast becoming my new comfort food. For more photos, including my Vegemite experiment,


This is as far as I got with the Vegemite. I ate the toast, but couldn't fathom it with banana.

So what began as an Aussie after-school snack became a healthy twist on the Elvis sandwich: almond butter and banana, served with carrot and celery sticks.

hmmm...I live in Australia and have never seen or heard of anyone having a banana and vegemite sandwich. Yuk! Probably the best introduction to Vegemite I can think of is a light spreading underneath grilled cheese...or with some freshly sliced tomato on toast.
