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!
SO far I've made
Gobbler Slices - so delicious, I may never ever buy a field roast again. This stuff is so good, so much better than Tofurky (or any other kind of deli-slices), that I sometimes just grab a slice out of the fridge to eat plain. Plain!
Mushroom Tomato SLices - also delicious - not as good as the gobbler, but still way better than any deli-slices I've ever bought
Taste of Tuscany Sandwich - I made this for super-bowl and served it to my non-vegan husband who liked it so much I made them for dinner the next week as well. The mayo/olive/garlic sauce is outrageously delicious
Dagwood's Special - a classic club
Portobello Po' Boys - delicious crispy-fried portobello slices with another delicious mayo/pickle/sriracha sauce
NOrth End Grinder - a classic "italian" style grinder with all the fixins (I added more stuff than the recipe called for such as hot pepper slices, chopped pickles & olives) with yet another killer dressing. I brought this to a vegan pot-luck and brought the house down
WIth such good results on everything I've made, I totally trust this book and I look forward to making every single recipe in here.
The recipes aren't toss-together quick, but if all you want are quick slap 'em together sandwiches, do you really need a book? These are special, dinner and company worthy 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.
What I like most about it is that it doesn't rely on many prepared foods or processed vegan alternatives to meat products. The back of the book has recipes to make seitan that replaces beef, bacon or chicken. The few sandwiches that call for meat replacements use these basic staples that you make yourself. This is a plus if you'd rather make the seitan than buy prepackaged meat replacements.
What I dislike about the book is that the recipes are complex and have many ingredients (though sometimes 5 or 6 different herbs make this list look worse than it is actually). There are none that you could whip up quickly or casually, all will take some planning.
That said, everything I have tried so far has been delicious. I would recommend this book for anyone who would often like to have a sandwich as a meal and isn't afraid to spend as much time and effort on the sandwich as they would on preparing a traditional meal with an entree and sides.There are over 100 different and unique sandwiches and wraps in here, with flavors and influences from all over the globe.
