Vegemite on Toast

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Chef floWer

Vegemite is an Australian food icon, which can be consumed daily. It is a spread made mainly from concentrated yeast extract that is leftover from the beer brewing process, but that doesn't make it alcoholic.

How clever of you to submit this as a recipe! Yum! I've loved vegemite since I was a kid (of course) but I have to admit that I spread about six times the amount you show - but then, I eat it by the spoonful (or off the spreading knife, lol).
NO comparison with marmite or promite though, please! Neither are nearly as good! :D
