Haylo,

Does anyone know of any decent vegan sandwich fillers? I'm kind of getting sick of having mushroom yeast pate every single day! Well, that's a slight exaggeration... I do have salady things as well. And I bought some fake turkey stuff today, which looks quite tasty. Nyum nyum... Any more suggestions?

Thanks,

Stephen

At the vegany market place I go to, they sell a vegan "chicken" salad. It's locally-made, so I dougt you could purchase it where you live, but I think it's easy to make. I'd suggest cutting up marinated tofu in tiny pieces, mixing it with Veganaise or something sort of thick, with carrots, celery, and whatever spices you like to eat, and making a sort of spread. I make random things with tofu, you just have to experiment. Use your imagination! Cooking is fun! *smiles with teeth that go "ching!"*

I have avocado and Tesco vegan salad cream and a bit of salad.

Or Scheese and lettuce and salad cream.

Or Tofutti cream cheese and Branston sandwich pickle.

Or Marmite and tofu.

Pease pudding and salad and Plamil mayo

Instead of sandwiches sometimes I have leftover cold pasta with a load of stuff chucked in on top(like sundried tomatoes, mayo)

Oh yes, what Warhead said: FALAFEL! I love it sooo much. I know Fantastic Foods makes a premade mix, all you have to do is fry or broil it. Perhaps you could find it where you live, or maybe find a recipe. It's tasty. :9

yep i tried sloppy joes with so soya (basically tvp but soy rather than vegetable) it was yummy

but veggie sandwiches around here usually are: toasted whole wheat bread with lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, cucumber, tomato, onion, and usually green peppers, sometimes mushrooms. i usually just put salt and pepper and margarine in it and nothing else, and it's nummers. no "wierd" stuff lol

or i'll just pick up some yves veggie turkey slices and have it with lettuce and mustard

I like to coat thin slices of tofu with a nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and salt mix and then fry until crispy, put on a bun with sprouts and mustard... mmmmmmm... you can also coat the tofu with curry powder... tastes good hot or cold

Aaahh, you've all made me hungry now!!

I'd like to try Tempeh. A friend of mine often makes Tempeh burgers but I haven't tried one.. yet.

There's no vegan 'chicken' salad where I live, as far as I know, but a pub down the road has recently started serving vegan dishes, like tofu stir fry. I wish every pub/restaurant would have such a wide selection...

Oh, I noticed that the local Health food shop sells Falafel. I may just have to buy some later


Thanks!

Stephen

I went on a white-water rafting trip this year (O.A.R.S. was the company and they went out of their way to prepare delicious vegan foods for me) and I was turned on to an awesome sandwich while there.

Good bread of course

Fresh avocado

Sliced red onions

Pickles

Salsa-Hot but not too hot so you taste nothing else

Some kind of veggie sandwich meat, ot none.

Sounds weird but they are great

I got a recipe a few years back from Lightline Tempeh that is for an excellent vegan or vegetarian chicken salad.

One package of Tempeh (I think they are one pound)

Two tablespoons of water

Two tablespoons of soy or tamari sauce (I prefer non-salty ones)

Two teaspoons of rice vinegar (or white vinegar)

Mix the ingriendents and put in a shallow container with the tempeh and cook in a microwave for 4-5 minutes.

Break up the tempeh(I prefer very chopped others like it chunky)

Let cool:

Add the following..sorry but I never measure so you need to guess


Add fresh parsley 1/4 cup or so

Fresh or dried Sage 1/4 cup or so

Chopped Scallions maybe two "blades"

Chopped Celery (though i dislike celery in salads) to taste

Celery seeds 1/4 to 1/2 teasppon (the secret ingriedent)

Nayonaise or Mayonaise

Being vegan I use Nayonaise, my Finacee uses only Hellmans mayonaise


Stir all together and enjoy..

I prefer them in whole wheat pitas but they work on anything.
