  • Spread half of the cheese on one piece of bread and the other half on the other piece of bread.
  • Heat the Earth Balance in a pan on medium – low heat.
  • Place the walnuts, parsley and apples on one side of bread and cover it with the other piece of bread.
  • Place sandwich in the pan and cook for 3 minutes with a lid over the pan.
  • Flip over and cook for an additional 3 minutes with the pan covered.
