  1. 1

    Tear the nori leaf into small pieces and place them in a bowl. Add the soya mince, pour boiling water over it, and leave to stand for 15 minutes. Then, put everything in a sieve and lightly press on the mince to drain the water.

  2. 2

    Chop the gherkins and parsley.

  3. 3

    Using a food processor or blender, briefly mix or blend the soya mince and nori leaves with mayonnaise, gherkins, parsley, lemon juice, and mustard, along with all the dry spices. Place in a bowl, briefly stir, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  4. 4

    Spread a generous helping of margarine on one side of the toast slices. Put a large pan on medium heat and fry the slices until they are golden brown.

  5. 5

    Divide the vegan tuna mixture between the 4 slices, add lettuce leaves and tomato slices, and cut diagonally before serving.

Recipe notes

If you want the vegan tuna mixture to be warm, you can heat the finished but uncut sandwiches in the pan.
