Editorial Reviews


"The Earl of Sandwich would be proud! Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes have reinvented the sandwich, taking it to all-new heights with spectacular creations that will forever change your perception of lunch (and breakfast and dinner too!). From the scrumptious, mouthwatering recipes to the gorgeous photographs, this book is a must-have for sandwich lovers. Prepare to be inspired!"—Julie Hasson, author of Vegan Diner, The Complete Book of Pies, and more

"Celine and Tamasin have the magic touch; everything they make turns out delicious! They’ve brought sandwiches back to life with innovative, stacked creations like the Strawberry Spinach Tacowich, Portobello Po' Boys, and even Oreo® Wafflewiches. Who knew you could fit so much flavor between two slices of bread?"—Hannah Kaminsky, author of My Sweet Vegan, Vegan Desserts, and Vegan à la Mode

"Celine and Tamasin have elevated sandwich making to an art form, with homemade artisan breads and inventive ingredient combinations infused with lots of personality. Sandwiches like the Jamaican Dip, Sushi Soy Wraps, and Bananas Foster Cake Sandwiches are enough to make you swoon! Vegan or not, these are guaranteed to be the best sandwiches you have ever tasted."—Alicia C. Simpson, author of Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food and Quick and Easy Vegan Celebrations

"Take two super-creative, experienced, and highly regarded vegan cookbook authors, allow them to apply their imagination, and exceptional palates, to a theme where there are few boundaries other than slices of bread, and you have this incredible book. And what a book! My mouth is watering, thanks to the beautiful pictures, the detailed descriptions, and superlative flavor combinations. Way to make a sandwich, Celine and Tami!"—Carla Kelly, author of Quick and Easy Vegan Bake Sale and Quick and Easy Vegan Slow Cooking

"Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes, two stars of the vegan culinary world, have raised the sandwich bar and then some with this smart, sassy and satisfying book that’s packed with helpful tips, recipes that say ‘make-me,’ and Celine's wonderful photographs. THE INCREDIBLE GREEN SANDWICH brought me back home to bagels and that was just the beginning. Handheld and convenient, yes, but these recipes make satisfying entrees (and some desserts too), that just happen to be nestled between two slices of bread."—Fran Costigan, culinary instructor and author of More Great Good Dairy-Free Desserts Naturally

"This is the first time I’ve ever found myself drooling over sandwiches. Vegan Sandwiches oozes with gorgeous photos, creative recipes, and flavorful whit that makes you want to read it like a novel, from cover to cover."—Alisa Fleming, founder of and author of Go Dairy Free and Dairy Free Made Easy

"As if you need another indication of the depth of vegan cookbooks from ’12, how about this one: nothing but sandwiches! Yes, the duo of Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes cooked up this original between two slices of bread. No fears, it’s not all lunchtime fare. Included are sandwiches for breakfast, for dessert … you get the idea. Now, get the book." —Joseph Connelly, Publisher VegNews Magazine

Superb book, from gorgeous photos to fantastic refreshing recipes.

My only complaint about Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day so far is that there are just too many amazing looking recipes and I want to make all of them at once!
I can make these recipes quickly, they fill me up and most of all I cannot stress enough how yummy and cheap these recipes are!

So far, every single item I made from this book has been truly outstanding; from the "Cheese" for the Pesto Pizza, to the Chickpea Shwarma, and not to forget the Quinua Protein Wrap.
All had great bold flavor, a must in my book, and were relatively easy to make. Directions are clear and helpful.

So what is this twist I mention on the title?
Well, we are trying to keep the bread / wheat consumption to a minimum, and so most of the recipes I've made have been served on a bed of greens!
Sort of like an open face sandwich version I guess. Still delightful to eat, for sure.

One other note, is that I have taken the authors suggestions to replace tofu for the seitan (wheat meat) and again, this has worked out rather well.

On bread, in a wrap, on a bed of greens - however you serve these dishes up, they are a winner!

In the past, my husband and I used to eat sandwiches mostly when going on hikes, and never thought to make a whole meal out of a sandwich on other occasions. Then while leafing through this cookbook, we discovered amazing sweet and savory combinations to pack into bagels, waffles, cookies, wraps, rice paper, and even lettuce.
For a savory breakfast, we love the Incredible Green Sandwich, but our sweet tooth also loves the Maple Nut Pie Wafflewich, and the Blueberry and Corn Pancake Sandwiches with Lemony Filling.
With fork and knife handy, we're fans of the Welsh Rarebit, with a sauce that's perfect to use on baked potatoes also. The Hot Brown Sandwiches that use broccolini, tofu, and an amazing sauce were fantastic too.
For sandwiches that require just a little make-ahead prep, we love the Almo-Cado, with grated beet paired up with almond butter. We also love the Cajun Lettuce Wraps, with their brightly-colored filling and exotic seasoning.
As far as the classics go, we're big fans of the Pâté Sandwiches, where a deliciously rich and earthy vegan pâté is served with a thin slice of pear and sprinkled with black pepper in crusty French baguette.
If we must pick only one dessert, it would have to be the absolutely irresistible Ginger Cream Crêpe with Pears.
This book is great for its diversity of creative recipes that are perfect for every season, and last but not least, it's also beautifully designed and illustrated with tempting pictures of the sandwich-y results.

Amazing recipes for amazing sandwiches. I fancy myself a bit of a sandwich snob, and this book has impressed me from page one. Smartly laid out in a fun format, this book has tips, tricks, and of course amazing photos of delicious sandwiches.

My favorites so far:
Berry Stuffed French Toast Pockets (page 34) because the crispy, crusty french toast recipe is great on it's own, but the berry filling makes a great surprise. These also work great on the go as a handheld. Super yum.
Orange Fennel Summer Rolls (page 83) because they are so easy, fast, and refreshing on hot days. NO COOKING REQUIRED! Plus they are so pretty, and make a great appetizer as well.
The Party Monster (page 124) because it is delicious green bread stuffed with delicious home made deli slices and other savory goodness. It's a bit time consuming, but oh-so-worth it.
Oreo Wafflewiches (page 173) because, even though it's meant as a dessert, this one screams breakfast (to me) and tastes like a giant Oreo cookie! Whoa.

Another fabulous feature of this book is Chapter 8: The Building Blocks, which is has recipes that can be used throughout the rest of the book, or on their own. Recipes for how to make your own sandwich breads, and deli-style slices to come up with your own sandwich creations.

One of the most aesthetically beautifully presented vegan cookbooks I've seen, the first time I had flipped through the pages I was excited & inspired to try out some recipes immediately. Superb book, from gorgeous photos to fantastic refreshing recipes. It is now in my most favored part of my cookbook library, & a personal must have (Even purchased for part of a friends' wedding gift.). The authors have reinvented the sandwich & help you build & create the perfect sandwiches from scratch (Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner): baking the bread, rolls, or bagel recipes; to condiments; homemade meat substitutes; & all the fillings.

Recipes we've tried from the book & are pleased to come back for more:

Green Monster Bread (this bread is so versatile & delicious, this is one of our daily breads we run to now.).
Gobbler Slices (These are fantastic even w/my necessary sub, & I do have an allergy to nutritional yeast flakes, so I substitute this usually w/ground cashews, & sometimes sub w/powdered plant milk w/a dash of unrefined sea salt.)
Moo-Free Seitan.
Brioche, wow does this make amazing french toast (Berry Stuffed French Toast Pockets.)
Incredible Green Sandwich w/the homemade Green Monster Rolls that I made w/wheat pastry flour.
Bulgar Hummus Wraps
One World Reuben
Curried Lentil Wraps
Tempeh Bacon
Dagwood's Special Sandwich
Pittsburgh Steak Sandwiches
Ratatouille Sandwiches
Bean and Nut Burgers
Beet-N-Barley Burgers
Asian Eggplant Sandwiches
French Tofu Salad w/Grapes
Oreo Wafflewiches

The authors also makes some wonderful suggestions for substitutes for gluten-free diets. The recipes cook true, only keep in mind if you do use substitutes particularly when baking or creating deli slices, there might be some changes in the recipe's consistency that you may have to compensate for. There are so many more amazing recipes that I'm excited to make! ^_^
