Hey there fellow animal appreciaters. I have a request that I am asking of you. I am always searching for things to add a bigger and better flavor to my everyday mundane things like sandwiches.

So, recently I finished watching an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. The host visited a place that alongside an omni menu has a complete vegan menu as well. He show us in the video how to make this smoked coconut club that looks delicioouuuuss. I'm dying to try it but cannot get to philly any time soon. I'm trying to replicate it.

The hardest parts I'm finding are the smoked coconut and then also the tomato based mayo. The mayo literally has me salivating thinking about it. In the video, he lists all the ingredients but, I'm no master chef and cannot figure out the correct ratio of all of them for it to taste right. I was hoping maybe yall could help me out


I have faith in yall!
Thank you! (Also, sorry if this is in the wrong place? I didn't think it belonged anywhere else lol)

That place looks great!

sounded like the tomato mayo is: lemon juice, dijon mustard, tomato paste, garlic, and oil

depending on how much you want to make id start on 1-2 tablespoons tomato paste mixed with 1-2 teaspoons of mustard, lemon juice from half a lemon, a small clove or crushed garlic (maybe 1 tsp). heres the trick, drizzle the oil (id use olive oil) into this mixture while stirring it quickly until you get the consistency you want. if you add too much oil or lemon juice, compensate by adding more tomato paste to thicken it. taste it and if it needs more tang add more mustard or lemon.

Note on the mayo instructions by luvourmother: you'll want to use a whisk and beat the mixture quickly while adding the oil in a tiny, steady stream. Otherwise, the ingredients won't combine and you'll just get an oily mess. At least, that is my experience. Mayo can be tricky.

its not real mayo with eggs so the trickiness of mayo doesn't apply. its basically just a dressing, you can use a whisk but i find for small amounts a fork or pair of chopsticks works better. food processor is great for this too.

I have another question before I make this. Will it have the same thickness of mayo because you mentioned its just like a dressing and what I really miss about mayo is partly the thickness.

You can thicken it up with agar powder/flakes. Made from seaweed.

you can make it as thick as you want, just add more tomato paste if its not thick enough, if its too thick add more lemon juice and olive oil.

Oh damn - that looks sooooooo good.

Re: the tomato paste - you could always cheat by starting with a base of veganaise and then spice it up with the other ingredients from there. I'll try without first though...

Sorrow - thanks for the link to vegweb for the smoked coconut - I would add pepper to that list of ingredients as well.

Mmm.

Just want to mention that I visited the Memphis Taproom on Saturday with my husband. I had the Smoked Coconut Club. I would say that it was great. I wouldn't say it was amazing but maybe like 8.5 out of 10. The fries were actually really awesome. The coconut was fantastic but they didn't put that much on the sandwich so I got mostly tofu marinade flavoring. My husband said the sandwich tasted like a real club sandwich to him (he's an omni). If you are making a special trip to Philly, I would probably suggest going to another Philly vegan restaurant first. There are so many amazing vegan options in Philly that this place wouldn't be my first choice. That being said, I'm going back there Saturday before the Flyers game to meet up with a bunch of friends that aren't vegan. So, its kinda a nice place to go if there are non-vegans in your group plus the beer selection was quite nice. This time I think I will try the polenta pot pie.
