My all-time favorite is thick-sliced summer tomatoes on whole wheat bread with vegenaise and black pepper. I can hardly wait for summer!

Year round, my current favorite is a TJ's masala burger with lettuce, tomato,vegenaise, avocado and chutney.

Ahhh, this is hard to say. Many are so good in different ways.

One of my favorites is from a small store near me. It is called a Soy Boy. They take some thick sliced 9 grain whole wheat bread and add sliced smoked tofu (sliced thin like lunch meat). Then they add lettuce, red onion, tomato and vegenaise. I get that fairly often when I'm near that store.

Then there was a vegan Reuben from a restaurant in Asheville, NC. They used tempeh for the meat and added some other stuff (I think it was sauerkraut and vegan Thousand Island, but I'm not sure). It was also awesome.

Lastly, there's one from Panera Bread that's good. It's called the Mediterranean Veggie. With a little modification, it can be made vegan, which is what I do. It just has some veggies, some kind of basil-based spread and some really good tasting bread. The secret ingredient for this sandwich is what they call Peppadew peppers. They have some kind of indescribably good flavor.

I have two:

Roasted garlic hummus and guacamole spread on whole grain bread with cucumbers, sprouts, lettuce, etc.

AND

The signature veggie from Quizno's (veganized) It has black olives, red onions, guacamole, lettuce, thinly sliced mushrooms, and italian dressing. I just get it without the cheese or tomato.

Wait! I actually have three! I also love Tofurky hickory smoked deli slices with lettuce and pickle and Vegenaise on whole grain bread

Agreed on the Panera Bread Mediterranean sandwich!
I have a hard time picking a favorite, but there's this diner in New Jersey that does a seitan, pepper and onion sandwich, all of it grilled, and it's to die for. They have several vegan items on the menu, but I always get that sandwich because it's just too good.

It is actually a non-vegan one. Brie and avocado on granary bread. I wish they would make a vegan Brie......

Marinated portobello mushroom on thick lightly toasted bread.
Last night I toasted ciabatta bread and made a sandwich with Torfurkey, black olives, pepperoncini, etc
I used to adore BLTs...I'll have to try it with Morningstar bacon or something. When I was little and we would have BLTs for dinner I would eat FOUR of them- and I was a tiny kid!

Balsamic glazed tofu (this stuff is sinful on its own) on good bread with vegenaise, banana peppers or pepperoncini, greens (I like baby spinach), avocado slices, red onion and optional cheez slice or spread. When possible, I order it at my favorite restaurant but I've recently learned how to make it myself because I'm rarely able to go out to eat.

Here's the recipe I use for the balsamic tofu: http://theveganfoodie.wordpress.com/...c-glazed-tofu/

I let it marinade for 24 hours and flip it about halfway through.

I can't abandon the person I used to be, so I carry her.

I really love a whole heap of anti-pasto stuff inside a lightly toasted Foccacia or Turkish bread. But sometimes just a simple "cheatin' ham" and pickle sandwich on wholemeal bread will do it for me.

The best sandwich I ever ate was a tofu scramble and cheezy sauce sandwich.

First, make the Scrambled Tofu from Vegan with a Vengeance. Then, make the Cheezy Sauce from Veganomicon or Vegan Brunch (basically, the same recipe). Spread 2 slices of bread with vegan margarine. Put one slice, margarine side down, in a heated frying pan put your Scrambled Tofu on top of that. Top that with the Cheezy Sauce. Put other slice of bread on top, margarine side up. Fry in pan, pressing sandwich down a little, until bread is toasted. Flip sandwich and do the same on the other side. Yum.

It's the perfect sandwich for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The recipes will make enough for several sandwiches.


Scrambled Tofu
(I leave out the carrot and use lemon juice instead of lime cuz that's how it's written in Vegan with a Vengeance.)

Easy Breezy Cheezy Sauce (It's under the Tempeh Helper recipe and is basically the same as the one in Veganomicon except it's missing the pinch of thyme.)

You can also make this sandwich in a George Foreman type grill and it gets the bread nice and toasty. The grill marks make the sandwich look nicer, in my opinion. Just butter the bread as usual, assemble the sandwich, and pop it in the grill for 10-15 min.

That sounds amazing, thanks for the idea.

Grilled Daiya is just perfect to me, it mimics the grilled cheese with Kraft singles I used to have as a kid. Roasted tomatoes and olives are definitely going in my next one

Last summer I found this Middle Eastern restuarant while traveling that had the most amazing falafel/hummus pita sandwich I've ever had. The falafel was so delicate and "melted in your mouth". It was nowhere near hard, dry, greasy and overfried like some places. The owner informed me that his "secret" was to steam the falafels and then very lightly fry them. The steaming method allows the middle of the falafels to remain moist and flavorful after being fried. They were seriously little golden nuggets of deliciousness.

Peanut butter and sprouts on a garlic bagel. Trust me, it's good.

Second favorite is almond butter and apple butter on wheat bread.

I have to agree with you,Poppy. Few things taste as good as a summer tomato sandwich. I prepare mine exactly the same way.

The falafel sandwich at Sultan's Market here in Chicago. Best falafel ever. For reals.

I also love the Radical Reuben at Chicago Diner. Russian dressing, melted daiya, sauerkraut and super thin-cut seitan "corned beef." So, so good.

In terms of takeout sandwiches, count me in for another vote for the veganized Mediterranean Veggie from Panera. I had one today! I also love the Quiznos veggie sub (no cheese of course)... that sandwich really doesn't need the cheese, IMO. It's delicious without it because of all the other stuff.

A HUGE sandwich I bought at Annie's Naturals when I was vacationing on the Big Island, HI. I think it had smoked tofu slices, lettuce, sprouts, tomato, onion. What made the sandwich was a HUGE BUTTERY avocado that a local gave to me because she didn't want it. I spread avocado on the bread, and it was divine!
I love how random strangers in Hawai'i give free stuff away. They are so friendly! Haha, this other time, two guys with a pickup truck full of coconuts came up to my group and asked if we wanted fresh young coconut meat. He had this large machete, and started cracking coconuts for us! He made a spoon out of the husk, and the young coconut meat wasn't like anything I have ever tried. So soft, almost like jelly.

Sami's for me by me, lol
(although I do want to cast my vote the Quizno's veggie)
"Marlboro Man Sami on home baked Hoagies"
"Roasted Vegetables on Home Baked Foccacia"
"Better than TUNA Sami" - out of the Vegan Table
"Tofurkey on Homemade Hoagies with Roasted Veggies"

Avenue Bread also makes a KILLER sami called "Garden Deluxe" it features basil, red peppers, cucumbers, sprouts, lettuce, tomato, balsamic vinegar, and hummus on fresh baked bread
