I don’t know what it is but sometimes I crave those old meat classics. I always liked the taste of meat but I can’t stand the thought of where it came from. It’s why I love making a Tofurky on special occasions or adding veg chicken to a jambalaya. Although I was never big on lunch meat, one day out of the blue it seemed to call to me. So instead of consuming something that went against my morals I built a vegan version instead. My husband loved me for it! He was a meat and potatoes kind of guy so I was shocked and delighted when he first decided to become vegetarian and then went on to be full vegan with me. That being said he loves when I make the vegan version of all of his old favourites like lasagne and Shepherd’s Pie. It’s great that the vegan section in grocery stores is forever growing. Years ago making something like this sandwich would have never been possible!
To make a Lunch “meat” Sammich:
- Whole wheat bread
- Tofurky deli slices (they come in a variety of flavours which I sometimes mix together)
- Tofutti cheese slices
- And toppings of your choice – mustard, relish, pickles etc.
I’m going to assume you know how to put together a sandwich – if I walk you through it I’d feel like I was making fun of you!
We don’t make these all of the time – after all everything that goes in to them is heavily processed – but they’re a great way to satisfy a craving and stay plant friendly!
