Author Stacey Eckert


  • 4 slices of bread
  • 2 medium heirloom tomatoes, sliced (3-4 slices per sandwich)
  • Vegan cheese (I like Miyoko's Fresh VeganMozz or this recipe for homemade cheese)
  • Leaf lettuce
  • 6-8 basil leaves, thinly sliced or use vegan pesto spread
  • 1 tsp Balsamic glaze


  • Slice the tomatoes and chiffonade the basil leaves.
  • Assemble the sandwich. Add the lettuce, heirloom tomato slices, vegan cheese, and basil. Drizzle the balsamic glaze on top.
  • Enjoy the sandwich cold or press it like a grilled cheese and serve it hot.
