Welcome to the best vegan sandwich you’ll ever try! With the help of my wife Liv, and the amazing crew at Wusthof and their high quality knives, I was able to pull off one of my favourite sandwich creations to date!

With the perfect combination of savoury and sweet, crunchy and soft, this sandwich is going to be your new quick and easy go-to vegan sandwich recipe for the summer!
How it is made:
If your first impression is that this Vegan Cool Ranch Smoky Tofu Panini looks too good to be so quick and easy to make, let me put your worries at ease! Most of the ingredients here are readily available at home, or a quick purchase at the grocery store. What’s better is, its relatively hard to mess up a sandwich! So let me walk you through how truly quick and easy this can be if you want a sandwich that stands out from the rest.
First things first, pick your favourite bread. You know I had to go with the crispy flatbread! I’m a huge fan of store bought vegan breads, but feel free to make anything, including this flatbread from scratch. All you have to do to take it to the next level is mix in some garlic and chopped fresh basil to a bowl of butter and lather the outsides of the sandwich for the extra taste and aroma.
After you’ve done that, only a few quick steps left to do:
- Simply sear your tofu slices in a pan with some olive oil, flour coating and Liv’s amazing smoky glaze with some onions for the perfect caramelized flavour.
- Now the fun part! Stack it up and fry it. Lather on a good serving size of your vegan ranch seasoning and vegan mayo mixture, the onion, kale and tofu. Sit back and watch it sear on the press for the ultimate crunch!
- That’s it! Although it may be a few more steps than your every day sandwich, it’s really not that hard, and will take your sandwiches to the next level.
