Cheesy vegan sandwich hack

If you’re making this plum sandwich in a vegan version and you want to add even more cheesy flavours to it, you can sprinkle a little nutritional yeast over the vegan cheese. It will add an extra decadent cheese layer to the sandwich…plus, extra vitamins and nutrients. It’s a win-win.

What cheese can I use

You can use any type of cheese that has a good melting quality to it. I like to use cashew cheese, but you can use any type of cheese you prefer – or several types of cheeses if you are feeling like spoiling yourself.

Gluten free sandwich option

If you need a gluten-free sandwich, fear not. Just bake your favourite gluten-free toast or buy a loaf of gluten-free toast from the grocery store and you should be good to go.

Extra note: if you have gluten allergy you should also check the cheese you are using in this recipe to make sure it’s gluten free and safe for you to eat.

How is this delicious and easy cheesy plum sandwich made? It’s very simple. Just:

Instructions

  • Place two slices of toast on a plate and spread red pesto over the bread and top with cheese. Next, place the sliced plums on top and season with dried thyme, pepper and salt. Place a slice of toast on top to make sandwiches and brush the sandwiches with olive oil. 
  • Grill the sandwiches either on a pan or in a grill for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the toast is golden and the cheese has melted. 
  • Remove from the heat and allow the cheese to cool down for a couple of minutes before serving. Enjoy.
