Hi Hema , liked your video on the tofu sandwich. Tofu sandwich is a quick and easy bite that ensures a healthy treat. Would a grilled tofu sandwich be a better choice than a plain quickie?

This looks fantastic. So you think it can be done with vegan yogurt? I'm a new vegan, and I really don't know how to judge these things.
