  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 mushrooms closed cup
  • 2 slices white bread
  • 1 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 3 slices red onion
  • 2 slices vegan cheddar
  • 3 slices gherkin
  • 2 tsp American yellow mustard
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper


  • Saute the mushrooms in the olive oil until soft. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • While the mushrooms are cooking, toast (broil) the bread.
  • Spread one slice of toasted bread with mayo and top with slices of red onion, then a layer of cooked mushrooms.
  • Top with slices of vegan cheddar and season with black pepper. Melt the cheese under a grill (broiler)
  • Top with sliced gherkin.
  • Spread the second slice of toasted bread with mustard, top the sandwich and cut in half.
  • Serve while warm and enjoy!


  • I used closed cup mushrooms for this delicious sandwich, but you could use large flat cap or portobello mushrooms or even chestnut mushrooms.
  • A pinch of paprika or chill powder added to the mushrooms while they cook gives a nice little bit of heat.
  • This sandwich is best eaten warm while the cheese is soft and melted, but is still pretty good when cold.
