Who doesn't love a good sandwich? We have been eating sandwiches since toddlerhood. Perhaps your
culinary preferances have moved beyond PBJ, but if you are like most people you get in a rut. You don't know what kind of sandwiches to make and you don't want the same old things time and again. Well, there's a new vegan cookbook you will not want to miss!
"Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day" by Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes is a 191 page cookbook dedicated to... the vegan sandwich! Need I say more? This is way beyond cool! I received a review copy of this cookbook in the mail and was excited. The book looks great, has some color pictures throughout, and has more vegan sandwich ideas than you ever thought were possible.
There are so many that I plan to try, including the "Out for the Count of Monte Cristo," which is a breakfast sandwich bagel that has sauekrat, the "Onion Ring Ranchocado," which features an onion ring, and "Dagwood's Special Sandwich." I have to try that last one simply because it reminds me of my great grandmother, who used to call every high-stacked sandwich a Dagwood.
This book makes a great addition to my vegan cookbook collection. I look forward to making a few lunch sandwiches and having friends over to nosh down on them. Two thumbs up!
After getting this cookbook I wanted to ask the authors a few questions, so here is the Q&A that I did with them (find their Facebook page here):
My response to this varies constantly because it's hard to pick just one! Currently, the carnitas sandwiches are a favorite here. My husband had been asking me to make them again ever since we finished writing the book, so I finally caved in. Jackfruit isn't my favorite thing to look at and work with, but the results make me forget all of it when it's time to have a big bite, or twelve. I love the way the super flavorful marinated jackfruit pairs up with the spicy crème and the avocado spread/guacamole.
I go on and on about the From Russia With Love every time someone gives me a chance, and I have to talk about that one again. I think that when folks see the sandwich, they won't expect as much awesomeness as their mouth will get. The flavors are unbelievable (think caraway, sauerkraut, marinated tempeh, pumpernickel bread), and the texture is brilliant. Tami truly outdid herself with that one.
