The key to these insane macros is the combination of Lo-Dough and Eatlean cheese.

Low-Calorie Grilled Veg and Cheese Toastie

Low-Carb Toasties Made With Lo-Dough

When making a toastie with Lo-Dough, the quickest and easiest method is to use a sandwich press. Cut your Lo-Dough in half down the middle so you have a base and a lid. Spray the base with oil and place it oil-side down on the grill bars of your press. Lay up your ingredients, put the lid on and spray the top of the lid. Close the press and crank up the heat. It should be ready in around 5 minutes. We also recommend cutting the finished toastie in half once cooked. Then stack it up like a club sandwich. 

If you are looking for something quick, delicious and healthy, this veggie toastie might just be the one!

Method

  1. Preheat a griddle pan. Once hot, spray your courgettes and peppers with a little oil and griddle until softened and slightly charred.
  2. Cut your Lo-Dough in half to create your base and lid.
  3. Add your chipotle to the base, followed by the vegetables and the cheese. Top with the coriander and put the lid on. Turn up the heat on your sandwich press.
  4. Spray the lid with fry-light oil and place this side down into your sandwich maker.
  5. Cook for approx. 5 minutes and serve hot! We recommend cutting the finished toastie in half again and stacking up like a club sandwich (see photo).
