My latest obsession? The tiny variation of the persimmon known as a Fuyu. Fuyu’s are bright orange. They taste sweet and succulent. I could gobble them straight from my fruit bowl all day long, but I wanted to use them in a snack sandwich. Thus my recipe for Fuyu Cream Crusty Sandwich.
It takes a minute to assemble, and the taste is out of this world! Now all you need to do is scout out a Fuyu persimmon at a farmers market or Asian market.
And FYI…Persimmons are super fruits.

Fuyu Cream Crusty Sandwich
1 small crusty roll
(fresh walnut raisin is my pick)
1 Fuyu persimmon, perfectly ripe and squishy
2 tablespoon tofu cream cheese
3 Leaves of raddichio (or preferred crunchy lettuce)
Pinch of thick sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Slice roll. No need to toast, but you can if you’d like.
Spread 1 tablespoon of tofu cream cheese on each open face of roll.
Slice Fuyu thickly. About 3 slices per small fruit.
Layer Fuyu on cream cheese.
Sprinkle each side with a tad of salt, optional.
Layer leaves of raddicio.
Grind pepper as desired.
Eat open faced or put sides together and eat whole!
