Francesinha is a typical dish from Porto, Portugal (my homecountry) . It is the most unhealthy and un-vegan dish I know. So, I veganised it! It's a huge soy meat sandwich with a beer and tomato sauce on top.
Slightly fry the smoked tofu (cut the block in 1/2) and the sausages.
Now make the sauce:
- Pour the beer into a saucepan and add all the remaining sauce ingredients except for the flour.
- Bring it to a boil.
- Sift in the flour and stir until it’s diluted.
- Keep on a low flame, stiring occasionally.
On a plate place one slice of bread, spread a bit of mustard on it, then one slice of cheese, then the tofu, the sausages and one slice of ham. Close this with another slice of bread.
Now carefully pour generously* the sauce all over the sandwich – until the bread is soggy.
On the top place a slice of cheese and serve immediately.
You can sprinkle with parsley for decoration.
*Don’t hold back on the sauce!
