1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas, transfer to a mixing bowl and mash until all the chickpeas are broken down.

2. Add the spring onion, sweetcorn, vegan mayonnaise, lemon juice and salt & pepper, and combine.

3. Next, take 2 slices of bread and spread 2 tbsp of the chickpea mixture on top of each slice.

4. Add 30g of vegan cheese to each slice of bread and top with a second slice.

5. Next, spread vegan margarine on the outside of the top slice of bread.

6. Place a pan on a medium heat. Wait until the pan is hot before frying the first sandwich (margarine side down) for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

7. While the sandwich is frying, carefully spread margarine on the top slice of bread.

8. Flip the sandwich over and fry for a further 5 minutes.

9. Remove from the pan and repeat for the remaining sandwich.
