I like to "toast" tofurkey sandwiches with veganaise and tofutti american cheese on my indoor electric grill.

i used to make grilled cheese sandwiches with vegan cheese and sundried tomatos. they were so good i ate six in one day once! (then i realized they were made with oats therefor i cant eat vegan cheese anymore. allergic to gluten)

At the risk of sounding very daft, how do you make a toasted sandwich? It is just something that I have never made, so am not very familiar with. Your ingredients sound quite tasty, and maybe this is a whole new thing that I need to try.

You can buy a sandwich toaster, just "butter" the outsides of the bread so it doesn't stick, fill it with your favourite delights, then toast it for about 5 minutes or so. Think they're about £20 over here

Great for snacks with a cuppa :)

i know this sounds weird but i like sliced banana and grated plain choc (or whole cubes if i'm feeling yukky) - dont knock it till you've tried it! :p

Not sure if it would work in a toasted sandwich maker but roughly mashed avocado on toast with a splash of lemon and/or Tabasco is delicious. Tomato and sprouted seeds are a good addition although the sprouts would presumably go limp if toasted :)

Roasted/chargrilled eggplant in olive oil is also yummy with avocado and tomato!!!!

Jul 18th, 2004, 03:27 AM
lately for me its bin:

tomato, red onion, butter lettuce, vegan cream cheese, pepper and sea salt and sweet relish.

Jul 18th, 2004, 05:43 AM
thick avocado, thin spread of marmite, vegan cheese, tomato.

Jul 18th, 2004, 02:08 PM
I like making this one (but due to laziness I don't do it often):

Tomato, Onion, Cucumber, Romaine Lettuce/or mixed Greens, babaganoush (eggplant dip)/also works well w hummus, salt, and pepper, and a sprinkle of olive oil doesn't hurt... all wrapped in pita bread.

More often:
Almond Butter
Almond Butter w. raspberry jam (or another berry jam)
Natural Peanut Butter w fruit jam (preferably raspberry)

I will make plain hummus or eggplant dip sandwiches... but personally I like dipping into the dips more than eating them as a filling alone.. it always feels like I'm eating more than I should...

Jul 18th, 2004, 06:58 PM
I'm into anything with avocado hummous and or anything with mushroom tofu.

Being the health-fanatic that I am I do not eat any sandwiches except for tomato and avocado OR salad sandwichs as other types of sandwiches are disrecommended for digestive and complimentary issues according to several nurition books I have read.

Occasianlly I am naughty and have pita breads with hummus and salad or roast courgette cherry tomatoes and mushrooms; or same with yeast spread and tahini; or salad and bean salad with yeast spread; or falafel mayo and grated courgette broccoli and carrot (all raw).

Sep 3rd, 2004, 09:11 AM
my favorite is hummus with anything. hummus with vegetables in a sandwhich or hummus with a veggie burger on top...or almond butter with blueberries (this is my version of pb and j sandwhiches b/c i don't like jam/jelly).

Sep 3rd, 2004, 03:10 PM
Right now my favorite is grilled vidalia onions, red peppers, green peppers, and mushrooms wrapped in a tortilla w/ a little vinagrette dressing. So I guess it's not really a sandwich but a wrap... :p
