Tomato and Basil sandwich

The weather here has been pretty darn irritating.  I’m not one to complain, but its been raining non stop.  The joys of summer in South Africa :/  Note to tourist never visit KZN – South Africa during spring/summer time, unless you enjoy dreary weather!


So to lift my spirits about this WONDERFUL spring weather I made this fresh sandwich, perfect for those times when you need to be reminded that its spring/ summer or just because you want a damn good sandwich. 🙂





  • 2 slices wholewheat bread
  • 1 tbsp vegan cream cheese
  • 3 tomato slices
  • 4 basil leaves
  • 3 cucumber slices
  • 1/2 small carrot grated
  • 1/2 tbsp vegan mayo
  • salt and black pepper 


On one slice of bread spread the cream cheese.  Layer the tomato, basil, carrot and cucumber on the bread. 


Drizzle with the mayo and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Place the sandwich in a medium sized pan on high heat and allow to brown and flip, cook until both sides are brown.


Enjoy your weekend lovelies!  and here is a picture of Pedro to kick of your weekend!
