  1. Slice the tofu into finger sized pieces, not too small as they may fall apart.

  2. Place the tofu in a bowl with the juice of half a lemon, a large pinch of sea salt, and 1 tablespoon vegan fish sauce/soy sauce/aminos. Place in fridge for at least 30 mins, or as long as possible

  3. Take a large plate and carefully pour the breadcrumbs onto it

  4. Once marinated, press the tofu fingers carefully onto it, turning so all sides are completely covered, and no tofu is showing through. Set aside

  5. Add your frozen peas to a bowl and follow cooking instructions

  6. Once cooked, blend or mash along with a spring of fresh mint chopped finely, and a squeeze of lemon and a little butter to your preferred consistency

  7. Take a large frying pan onto a medium heat until the oil starts to bubble

  8. Carefully place your tofu fingers into it and gently turn them with a spatula until each side has browned, and take them off the heat

  9. Add in one tablespoon of Hellmann's vegan mayo into a bowl and chop the cornichons into small chunks with a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. You can add any more of the above ingredients to achieve the consistency or flavour you prefer

  10. Toast the bread or leave it soft

  11. This is entirely personal preference, but as a guide: slice of sourdough, a generous helping of pee puree, lettuce leaves, tomatoes, tofu fingers. Top with the delicious vegan tartare sauce and a final slice of bread
