Japanese Katsu Sando Sandwich Recipe

put something different inside your bread

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
It’s high-protein. It’s vegan. It’s crispy-crunchy. It’s katsu! This Japanese-inspired snack will bring fun to your house!


  • Bake the Protein Bread according to the instructions on the package.
  • Chop the red cabbage as finely as you can. Put into a bowl and cover with the rice wine vinegar. Add a pinch of salt.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the mustard-mayonnaise in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Bring a medium-large pot of salted water to the boil.
  • Peel the celery root. Cut into slices about 1 cm thick.
  • Boil the celery-root slices for 4-5 minutes.
  • Pat the slices dry with a paper towel and set aside briefly to cool. Then brush each one with mustard.
  • Prepare three separate flat bowls. Put the plant-based milk in one, the flour in another, and the breadcrumbs in the third.
  • Working slice by slice, first dredge each slice of celery root in the flour, then in the plant milk, and finally in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a pan on medium-high heat.
  • Fry each of the celery cutlets in the oil until golden-brown on each side. Season with salt and pepper immediately after taking each one out of the pan.
  • Slice the Protein Bread.
  • Put the Worcestershire sauce into a bowl. Dip each piece of katsu into it until it absorbs a good bit of sauce.
  • Now put together your katsu sandwich. Spread the mayo-mustard on the bread. Put a piece of katsu on a slice of bread, top it with the red cabbage, and lay another slice of bread on it. Then cut off the crusts so you have a lovely square.
  • Enjoy!
