Creamy Papaya Carpaccio Open Faced Sandwich

Author Notes: Been craving a wonderful smoked salmon sandwich lately.... seeing as I am vegan however, this proves to be a bit difficult. I decided to mock up something that would look similar, and taste spectacular! Using beautiful papaya, delicious macadamia nut cheese, fresh greens, and some sprouts - nothing could have been more welcome at lunch hour than this little gem!Shanna Jade | Kiss My Bowl

  1. Nut cheese is very simple to make! Toss all ingredients, whole, into a blender and whirl until smooth and creamy!
  2. Plate the pieces of rye, slathering a generous amount of the macadamia cream cheese over each slice. Next layer with a decent handful of arugula, and as many slices of the papaya as desired. Finish with the fresh sprouts! Garnish with some papaya seeds and sliced lemon.
