What was in it? I'm on the hunt for the perfect sandwich.
Agreed on the Panera Bread Mediterranean sandwich!Originally Posted by sleepydvdr
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.
It really is, I had to get another one today!
That sounds amazing, thanks for the idea.Originally Posted by Nishani
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.
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
Oh wow, I'm making that too!!! I love this threadOriginally Posted by Mrs. T
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.
