The story you are about to read is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent. Wait, I don’t think we’ve changed any names in this post, but you get the point.

Imagine, if you will, a dark, dreary night in January. A hand reaches out, clutches a mouse, extends a finger, and clicks  “publish” which sets in motion a series of events, the ramifications of which could not have been foreseen.

America’s Top 10 New Sandwiches. That’s what the published post was titled. A simple topic of pleasure, but screams of terror were heard everywhere, including places with happy names like Fiesta, Texas. Of course, those screams could be attributed to the thrilling rides at Six Flags Over Texas, but that’s beside the point.

Dripping with cholesterol and oozing with fatty cheeses, these rogue sandwiches were set to launch widespread destruction. That was until the Vegan Avengers saved the day. In classic Dragnet fashion, we’ll provide you with just the facts, ma’am.

Original place of publication: A post called America’s Top 10 New Sandwiches by the amazingly popular Endless Simmer

Further promotion: The post received front-page coverage and a wild response from the online news source and content aggregating blog, the Huffington Post. It seemed like these unmasked superheroes, the Vegan Avengers, were toast. No wait, they eat toast. They had their work cut out for them.

    Glad everyone is liking this! Even though the ingredients list seems daunting it is actually pretty easy to make. You could always use Daiya Mozzarella instead of the spread and save some time and effort.

    Thanks for the opportunity Marly!

    Hello!
    I’d like to know if it’s healthy to put tofu or mock meat in bread.
    Actually i love veggie burgers (mushrooms + eggplants are my fave)! but i usually eat them alone and not in bread because i feel that it’s too much “dough” afterwards.
    what do you think and what do you usually do?

    cheers

      We regularly use tofu based products on our sandwiches. For example, look at one of our favorites, Eggless Egg Salad.

      For me personally, I’ve been on a mission to minimize gluten in my diet so I frequently will use lettuce as my “bread” – putting the sandwich contents in the middle of two slices of lettuce or rolled into one big leaf. I love that! I think it matters what works best for you. If you think it’s too much dough, have you ever considered using thinly sliced bread or sandwich thins? I’m not certain if these are vegan because I couldn’t find the nutritional info on the website, but I think they are.

      Hopefully those are some good sandwich ideas for you!
