Pesto, Red Pepper & Sham Toastie

Delve into the comforting embrace of our easy peasy 'Pesto, Red Pepper & Vegan Camembert Toastie', a gourmet twist on a classic toasted sandwich. This simple recipe marries the zesty allure of vegan pesto with the sweet, smoky flavour of roasted red peppers and paprika and the creamy, irresistible Honestly Tasty Shamembert - all sandwiched between two slices of golden, crusty sourdough.

Toasties, or toasted sandwiches, have been a beloved comfort food across the globe, dating back to ancient Roman times when toasting bread was a common method for preservation. They gained particular prominence in the UK during World War II, serving as a practical solution for a nourishing meal during food rationing and today, toasties are celebrated for their versatility and ease, allowing for endless creativity in fillings, from the simplest cheese and tomato to more elaborate concoctions like our vegan gourmet version!

This Pesto, Red Pepper & Sham Toastie is a simple, easy to assemble treat for the taste buds. Prepared by spreading a generous layer of pesto on sourdough, topped with roasted red pepper and vegan camembert, then crisped to perfection in a pan, this sandwich is a new take on the traditional cheese toastie. Enjoy this quick, satisfying meal as a quick snack, or tasty lunch (perhaps bulked out with some greens / salad on the side!).
