Kale Pesto

3 C (750 ml / 180 g) kale, blanched
⅓ C (80 ml) nutritional yeast
⅓ C (80 ml / 70 g) roasted almonds
1 tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice
2 small cloves garlic
¾ C (180 ml) olive oil
salt and pepper

Chilli Oil

3 (75 g) spring onions
2 fat cloves of garlic
1 Tbsp (15 ml) nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice
4 Serrano chillies, deseeded
¾ C (180 ml) olive oil
salt and pepper

Sandwiches

8 (380 g) Fry’s Braai-style Sausages
8 ciabatta / panini rolls
800 g (8) large brown mushrooms, cooked
4 (600 g) tomatoes, thinly sliced
8 (160 g) vegan cheese slices

Kale Pesto

Combine the kale, nutritional yeast, almonds, lemon juice and garlic in a food processor and process until coarsely ground. Keep the motor running while adding the oil in a thin stream. Blend until smooth and season to taste.

Chilli Oil

Combine the spring onions, garlic, nutritional yeast, lemon juice and chillies in a food processor and process until coarsely ground. Keep the motor running while adding the oil in a thin stream. Blend until smooth and season to taste.

Sandwiches

Lightly chargrill the Fry’s Braai-style Sausages on a braai/barbeque over medium heat coals until heated all the way through. Slice each sausage in half, lengthwise.

To assemble, slice each roll open and spread the inside of each half with the kale pesto. Assemble the toppings on the base of each roll by starting with a slice of vegan cheese. Add 2 mushrooms, 2 slices of Fry’s Braai-style Sausages and a few slices of tomato to each sandwich. Top with the other half of the bun.

Cook the sandwiches over medium heat coals on the braai/barbeque for 10-12 minutes, turning regularly until golden, crisp and lightly charred (use a sandwich grid if you have one to make turning easier). Serve each sandwich with chilli oil for dipping or drizzling.

TIP: The sandwiches can also be cooked in a griddle pan over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden and crisp. Turn the sandwiches regularly to avoid over-charring. The sandwiches can also be cooked in a Panini press, if preferred.
