The good news is that my book is off to the editor! The not-so-good news is that means there are still about a thousand different things that I need to do to prepare for book launch.
But I still have to eat which means another vegan sandwich recipe…of sorts.
Did anyone else love a good tuna salad sandwich as a kid? My favorite was made with Miracle Whip, celery, mustard and diced pimento. It was simple and went really great with crackers. But recently I was in the mood for a proper grown up vegan tuna sandwich but with a twist.
If you’ve been around a while you know that I love pesto of all varieties and I will put it on absolutely anything from Vegan Eggs to Tabbouleh Salad and yes, my favorite Pizza Brot recipes! If you love vegan pesto as much as I do, click hereto get started on pesto basics.
But the truth is that I love tapenade just as much, I mean what’s not to love about an olive centric dish? But it can get salty and I’m searching for more ways to add tapenade to dishes without making it salty AF.
Sometimes life requires a sandwich, a deli sandwich to be exact. I saw this reel on Instagram from The Korean Vegan and it was this massive sandwich with tofu and avocado (yuck but to each vegan his/her own, right?) and it looked so good that it made me want a sandwich. Only I’m not running marathons so I thought I would make something similar, only much scaled down.
There’s just something about a good sandwich that can transport you back to anytime and even though this vegan sandwich recipe was inspired by someone else, this makes me think of the amazing subs the Hubs and I found in Boston and Los Angeles. Only they weren’t vegan and now they can be which only makes them all the more delicious.
This is a fairly easy vegan recipe because I let the oven do most of the work and all I had to do was assemble before eating it and getting back to the writing cave.
The best thing about this sandwich is that you can replace each ingredient with something else for a week, a month or even months of vegan sandwich recipes. Oh and the addition of sprouts is good for your gut health and they are high in antioxidants such as; vitamins C, K, and E, folate, and potassium.
If you’re looking for a way to stop buying fast food for lunch or just another fun sandwich to liven up your vegan diet, this smoked tofu deli sandwich is the perfect answer.
This time I can’t blame the sandwich dinner recipe on being busy because as it turns out, I am always busy. But as these things usually happen, there was some really good looking lipie (bread) at the market and even better, it was fresh from the oven warm. Instantly I thought, sandwiches!
I know this isn’t a traditional smash burger because I didn’t smash it down and I didn’t even leave it in it’s true burger form, but it’s the style of burger I was going for in spirt and in flavor. So maybe just let me call it a smash burger because my only other choice, which my husband refused, was to call it a loose meat sandwich like the diner from the TV show, Roseanne. Anyone remember that show from the 90s?
Anyway those were my options and vegan smash burger sounded more palatable so here we are.
How do you like your vegan burgers? More importantly, what brand is your favorite?
We have Beyond burgers here so that’s my top tier, go to favorite. But Verdino and Naturli also make pretty good burgers too. So let’s get some vegan burgers on our plates, y’all!
I’ve been really lazy in the kitchen lately and by that I mean that me and the Hubs have been living on two things: sandwiches and one pot vegan dishes. I’m trying to finish off Green St. Girls book #2—which is thisclose to being complete—and getting everything settled for a much needed break next month, and making one meal to eat for both meals is a great time saver.
But when I really need a break but not too long, sandwiches are my jam. A good vegan sandwich recipe requires some work but not the kind of work where you make a whole meal.
With a sandwich half the work is done by the bread so you just have to work in the sandwich filling, and today’s filling is spicy jackfruit.
This is an easy vegan sandwich recipe that you can fancy up or play it down, depending on how much time you want to spend in the kitchen and how many ingredients you want to use. And I find that adding a small bowl of fresh, raw veggies—also called a salad for you healthy food haters out there—can complete pretty much any meal.
You can use store bought vegan barbecue sauce or make your own with a few simple ingredients you probably already have in your cabinets.
So let’s knock this vegan sandwich recipe out so I can get back to my writing cave, shall we?
Okay so today’s recipe isn’t so much of a recipe as it is just sharing a childhood favorite among friends.
Things have been so busy lately with my clients keeping me busy and trying to edit my back catalog (shameless promo here if you love romance books and small town romance in general: ), that I haven’t been doing a lot of cooking. Okay, that’s not true either. I have been cooking but mostly things I’ve made thousands of times before.
Vegan salads and Noodles. The end.
But we decided to try out a new vegan food product, more fish sticks. Why do I keep trying these recipes when they inevitably disappoint me? The honest answer is that my husband is responsible for this latent sense of hope that I feel, always with my fingers crossed that I’ll find some I like.
But the truth is that I’m not a fish sticks (fish fingers for my UK friends and readers) fan. Back in my childhood days I would suffer through it because it was that or nothing but I’m just not a fan and these new vegan fish sticks? They taste just like I remember.
So instead of wasting them by tossing them out, I did what I used to do back in the day, turned it into a sandwich! It was my own homemade kiddie version of a filet-o-fish and this time, it was veganized.
Are you looking for a delicious and easy vegan lunch option? Look no further! This smoked tofu, vegan Gouda, and homemade cranberry sauce sandwich is the perfect combination of flavors and textures. Plus, it’s easy to make and can be customized to your taste preferences.
You don’t have to use smoked tofu, in fact you can use any vegan meat alternative you choose. But I was browsing online and came across a non-vegan dish that was very similar to this and jogged a few nostalgic memories and I knew I would make a vegan version, especially since I was looking for a new vegan recipe to use with the fresh cranberries. Gotta make the most of them while they’re in season, right?
Take some time to find a sandwich bread of your choice, because bread is very important when it comes to making a proper vegan sandwich.
It’s that time again folks, for another one of my delicious meals that didn’t quite photograph to show off how amazing it was. I’ve been planning to make time to take a course on how to be a better food photographer but there are only so many hours in a day.
But I wanted to share this vegan burger recipe with you because it’s a nice twist on burger night, and even better? You can go crazy with your favorite burger toppings if you decide to skip the fries and save a few calories.
I just wanted to drop in really quick today to share with you another new vegan food product find.
Revo is a new-to-me vegan food company and I don’t know much about them, however I tend to trust German vegan foods company simply because that’s where I lived when I first became vegan and they’re products have always been up to par.
Smoked salmon. That’s right, you heard me. Vegan smoked salmon. And it’s not even made from soy/tofu if you can believe it.
I’ll tell you right up front that I am and never have been a fan of smoked salmon. When I ate animals I didn’t care for the smell or the taste of it and I can’t say why only…blech. But my husband? He was a huge fan of it so I knew the moment he spotted this he would fangirl out and insist on getting a package.
And guess what? He did.
There was just one thing to do with it, in my opinion. Vegan smoked salmon sandwich on a wheat bagel. Duh.
As you can see, they’ve gotten it pretty spot on with the color if that matters to you. Even the texture is pretty close without all the white membranes going through it, which I think is a good thing.
And best/worst of all, depending on your viewpoint? They do a bang up job of making it taste like smoked salmon. For me that was a total bummer but my husband gobbled up his open-faced vegan smoked salmon sandwiches like they were going out of style!
So today’s post will be a quick-ish one but I just had to share another new find from Filgud…vegan pastrami!
I found this on the day I found the vegan caviar and as soon as I saw it, I made a beeline to the bread section to find some type Rye or Pumpernickel bread. I have very fond memories of this sandwich at real delis in Chicago and Boston and I couldn’t wait to recreate it and–cross my fingers–hope the pastrami had that delicious herb-y, pepper-y pastrami flavor.
I have to say that the Filgud vegan pastrami did not disappoint. It had the exact right flavor profile and my only complaint, if you can call it that, was that the strips were a little too thin. I ended up tearing a few strips which made for less pretty photo.
One of my favorite things to is travel to new places and explore new cultures, history and art. I love to see how people live all over the world and whenever I can find time I like to go pretty much anywhere that has a few items of interest.
My partner and I had been planning a trip to the Danube Delta and then COVID struck and we postponed it. Twice.
But we finally got there and we took a rather circuitous route, starting with Constanța to see the port and the Black Sea, which is a place my husband and his family often spent summers when he was a kid. The day was nice and warm and we walked around the city before taking in the Museum of History and Archeology which was incredible. There really is a lot of Roman history to be found in Romania, in addition to the Austrian and German influences found throughout their history. It was a wonderful day of sun and history and exploration.
So we started with Constanta and if you don’t know it is the birth place of tennis player Simona Halep and actor Sebastian Stan! Just a little bit of fun trivia for ya.
