  • 2 pats vegan butter (or oil)
  • 2 slices whole grain, vegan bread
  • 2 slices vegan cheese (I use the Choa brand - plain flavor)
  • 3 small slices tomato
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Use the small pats of butter just to gently coat the outside of each slice of bread for baking. Don't use a lot, it's just to help it brown a bit during baking.

  3. Lay the bread on a baking sheet, buttered sides down.

  4. Layer on the cheese, sprinkle on the garlic powder (1/4 tsp. each side) and place this in the oven for 5 minutes.

  5. Remove the bread slices from the oven and add the slices of tomatoes. Close the sandwich, turn the oven on the broiler setting and return the sandwich to the oven for another 5 minutes.

  6. If you want this to be golden brown on both sides, you may want to flip the sandwich in that last 5 minutes, or even add an additional 5 minutes for the second side. It's up to you and how your oven bakes. You may have to play around with the baking times a bit the first time you make this. Just note that Choa cheese isn't great with longer cooking times. So that's why I kept the timing short. Ajust it as needed to get the result you prefer.
