Ingredients
Vegan 'Prawn' Filling
  • 150 g Extra Firm Tofu Make sure it's the EXTRA firm style, not squishy silken tofu.
  • 2 tsps konbu stock granules
  • 1/2 tsp grated or finely chopped ginger
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
To Assemble the Toasts
  • 8 slices French Baguette
  • 3 Tbs Sesame Seeds (you might need more...)
  • 6 Tbs Nuetral Oil such as Sunflower
For the Dipping Sauce
  • 3 Tbs Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients for the 'prawn' tofu filling in a food processor & whizz into a paste

  2. Squish the filling onto the slices of baguette. It's nice to make them a bit mounded in the middle so there is lots of lovely flavour.

  3. Roll and press the sesame seeds onto the filling side of the bread

  4. Heat a frying pan with the oil, making sure it is hot enough to toast a square of bread in a few seconds

  5. Put the toasts in a few at at time sesame seed side down. 

  6. Fry for a few minutes until the sesame seeds start to colour, then flip carefully and cook the underside

  7. Drain on paper napkins.

  8. To serve, mix together the sauce & vinegar to make the dipping sauce and get your sharp elbows out to make sure you get the most slices!
