Ingredients

Servings: 4 sandwiches
  • 1 sheet
    nori
  • ¼ cup
    extra firm tofu
  • 2-3
    pickled gherkins
  • ¼ bunch
    parsley
  • 3 tbsp
    mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp
    lemon juice
  • 1 tsp
    mustard
  • ¼ tsp
    ground white pepper
  • ½ tsp
    ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp
    ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp
    paprika powder
  • ½ tsp
    ground fennel seeds
  • ½ tsp
    salt
  • 8 slices
    whole grain toast
  • margarine
  • 4 large leaves
    lettuce
  • 1–2
    tomatoes cut into thick slices

Instructions

  1. Tear the nori leaf into small pieces and place them in a bowl. Crumble the tofu, add it to the bowl and 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. Chop the gherkins and parsley.

  3. Using a food processor or blender, briefly mix or blend the tofu 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. 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. Divide the vegan tuna mixture between the 4 slices, add lettuce leaves and tomato slices, and cut diagonally before serving.

Notes

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