  2. Roast the Shiitake Mushrooms – click here for directions.
  3. Spread cheddar cheese on one slice of bread per 2 for a sandwich. Toast bread until lightly browned and cheese has warmed. While bread is toasting prepare sauce – mix 2 tablespoons of Veganaise with 1 – 2 teaspoons of Truff Hot Sauce (make it as spicy as you want!). 
  4. Assemble layering with Shiitake, tomato, lettuce and sauce. Season with a few grinds of fresh pepper. Cover with top piece of bread. Slice and serve immediately.


I used straight hot sauce in my original recipe photo, but you can lighten it up by mixing with vegan mayonnaise.
