Grilled Cheese Sandwich

When I was a kid, the only meal my mother could be sure I would eat was a grilled cheese sandwich. In this version, whole- grain bread and vegan cheese do the job deliciously.

Makes 2 Servings

Ingredient List: 

4 slices whole- grain bread
Vegan butter substitute
4 slices vegan cheese substitute, mozzarella is best
4 slices ripe tomatoes

Step By Step Instructions: 

Preheat a lightly oiled skillet or griddle pan over low heat.
Lay 2 slices of bread on a dry work surface and lightly spread both sides of the slices with vegetarian butter spread. Arrange 2 slices of cheese on the bread and, top with 2 slices tomato. Lightly spread the remaining bread with vegetarian butter spread on both sides and press on to the cheese and tomatoes.
Lay the 2 sandwiches in the skillet and press down firmly with a spatula. Allow to grill until lightly browned, 2–3 minutes. Turn sandwiches and press with spatula again and cook until lightly browned, 2–3 minutes. Remove from pan, slice in half diagonally, and serve immediately.
