40 grams Tofu
2 slices Whole Grain Bread
1 handful Arugula (rocket)
1/2 Tomato
2 tsp Olive Oil
20 grams Vegan Parmesan Cheese
1 pinch Table Salt
1 pinch Black Pepper
1 tsp Dijon Mustard (whole grain)


Step 1: Pre-grill your thinly sliced tofu until it is cooked all the way through and then allow to chill in the refrigerator, marinade with a little soy sauce if you like!

Step 2: Lightly toast your whole grain bread to your preferred toastiness… (Toasting the bread removes the chances of a soggy sandwich!)

Step 3: Slice the tomato into sandwich slices! Then, do the same with the cheese.

Step 4: Spread the mustard on one slice of toast. Then layer all ingredients in whatever order you see fit. We personally went with bread, half the arugula, tofu, tomato, cheese, the other half of the arugula, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Then top off with the mustard spread slice!
