Honestly, I can only imagine the organized chaos in the minds of Celine and Tami, authors of the outrageously creative cookbook, Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day! These two women reach to every culinary corner of the earth to come up with flavorful ideas to pack between a pita, tortilla, waffle, roti, or plain old bread.
I expected a relatively thin cookbook with vegan alternatives for classics, but what came in the mail was a thick, heavy, beautifully-designed, full-color cookbook with over 100 recipes that are anything but conventional. Rather than ramble on, I think you will get the gist if I share some of the recipe titles:
- Jamaican Dip
- Banh Mi
- Oreo Wafflewiches
- Chickpea Shawarma
- Onion Ring Ranchocado
- ‘Shrooms on a Shingle
- Retro KFC-Style Sandwiches
- From Russia with Love
- Maple-Nut Pie Wafflewich
- Dagwood’s Special Sandwich
- Protein-Happy Quinoa Wraps
- Hollandaze’d Asparagus Rounds
- Out for the Count of Monte Cristo
- Mango Butter and Ginger Whoopie Pies
The recipes have a lot of great mix and match features, too. Most are broken down into sauces, fillings, “meat,” and sandwich vessel so the recipe possibilities are endless!
To further wet your appetite, Tami and Celine have shared three sample recipes from Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day! that I think you will enjoy:
To note, this is a vegan cookbook plain and simple. It’s dairy-free and egg-free, but it’s most certainly NOT gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, or otherwise-free. Tami and Celine aren’t afraid to use any ingredients, so long as they don’t involve animals. If you’ve got an open palate, and are ready for some adventure, then arm yourself with Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day!.
