Stretchy Melty VEGAN Grilled Cheese with a magical ingredient! Completely natural, nut-free, oil-free, gluten-free.
One word of caution: melted mochi is extremely sticky, so once you have removed the sauce from the pan, please soak your pan in boiling water immediately - otherwise you'll have a very tricky washing-up situation on your hands!
*If using white beans instead of potatoes, sub the potatoes with 150g/5oz tinned white beans - make sure they've been drained and rinsed. There's no need to boil them first, so just cook the mochi in 100ml (a little less than 1/2 cup) water for around 5 minutes until soft and melty, then add the white beans and continue to cook for another couple of minutes until heated through
**If you have trouble getting hold of miso, you can substitute with soy sauce (or tamari), and add extra nutritional yeast and salt if necessary
***I was lazy and just toasted my slices of bread and spread the cheese sauce between them, but you can alternatively use a grilled cheese maker or a frying pan
