Vegan turkey and rice cheese sandwich 

With some extra spicy red pepper hummus and lettuce on walnut bakeshop bread 

I did pan warm the bread and then the turkey and cheese with a 30 second 30% power microwave to help melt the cheese without burning the bread 

It was my first time trying rice cheese, not bad at all!!
