  • 200 g vegan cheddar grated
  • 1 small red onion diced
  • 4 spring onions finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives chopped
  • 6 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper


  • Add the grated cheese and red onion to a mixing bowl.
  • Next add the chives, mayo and nutritional yeast.
  • Now add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper, then mix well.
  • Give the flavours 10 minutes to develop before making your sandwiches or cover the bowl and pop in the fridge until you need it.
  • If you are making sandwiches with sandwich filler from the fridge, allow it to come to room temperature before making them as the chill from the fridge can deaden the flavours.
  • Add to buttered bread and add salad leaves if you like, serve and enjoy!


  • If you are very generous with the filling this may make 3 sandwiches and not 4.
  • If you don't have nutritional yeast you can skip it or replace it with grated vegan cheddar.
  • You could also try this sandwich filling with vegan salad cream instead of mayo.
  • For a pop of heat, why not add some paprika and chilli flakes.
  • You can keep this filling in the fridge for 3-4 days.
