Jackfruit & Nopales Sandwich

This is a variation on a sandwich a local restaurant serves here in Phoenix and one of my students asked me to do a version of it, so now I am sharing it with you. It’s an easy to make sandwich and if you’re worried about working with cactus paddles (aka nopales,) don’t worry. There’s […]

Throwback Thursday! Chorizo Sloppy Joes

We have another Throwback Thursday here at the Vegan Taste! Growing up, I loved Sloppy Joes. My mom would make them from scratch and they were one of my favorite meals. When I moved out on my own, I used Manwich. I am sure that somewhere in our lives most of us have used Manwich […]

Chorizo Scramble Torta

If you can’t tell, I love tortas. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time. This one is based off of a torta from the restaurant Xoco and features a classic Mexican breakfast scramble, but uses a cilantro chimichurri sauce as the “kick” for the sandwich.    Ingredients The Sauce 2 cups […]

Mexico City-style Torta

Tortas, those quintessential Mexican sandwiches, are a staple of Mexico City. This particular sandwich combines elements found in different types of tortas to create a new delicious treat. At the heart of the torta are mushrooms or seitan simmered in a guajillo chile garlic sauce, giving a punch to the sandwich. This is topped with […]

Sweet Curry Tofu Salad Sandwich recipe

Has it really been THAT long since I posted? I am so embarrassed. ;< Now that is out of the way, I should tell you why. My mom’s move was physically hard on both of us. She shielded me from the worst of it, but it drained us both. I am not that hard to […]

Colorful Egg-Less Salad

When I was a kid, my mom and I would carefully crack the hardboiled eggs we were about to color. Where other kids dunked eggs and were done, I would soak mine for 30 minutes or more. The day after Easter, mom would start the tradition of the week of colored egg salad sandwiches! I […]

BBQ Soy Curl Sandwich with Roasted Garlic Aioli

A friend of mine was wondering what to do with Soy Curls, a product similar to tvp, but made from a whole soy bean instead of isolated soy proteins. I immediately thought BBQ, which led me to this BBQ sandwich. It’s got a simple roasted garlic aioli mixed with a slaw to give the sandwich […]

Tortas Ahogadas (with video)

This is a favorite Mexican sandwich of mine and one of my staple lunches. It only takes about five minutes or so to make, it’s super hearty, and the flavor is intense. The star of the sandwich is a chile arbol sauce made with handfuls of chiles arbol, white vinegar, a few spices, and some […]

Hummus Tapenade Sandwich

This simple, filling sandwich is packed with color and flavor. It’s got a semi-toasted bread loaded with hummus, tapenade, spinach, tomatoes, and lots of herbs and garlic. Best of all, the recipe looks long, but it only takes a few minutes to put together. For me, that’s the perfect lunch. Ingredients 1 par baked baguette […]

Carnitas Sandwich

Succulent seitan, avocado, hot sauce, and a nice soft bread with just a touch of crust make this one of my favorite sandwiches I’ve ever created. I ended up making this because I had some seitan sitting around and I wanted an excuse to eat some avocado with my new roasted garlic chile piquin hot […]
