Sliders with Cherry Balsamic Sauce

I can’t decide which I love better, the slider patties or the cherry balsamic sauce. Fortunately, I don’t have to decide because they go great together! I used a thinly sliced sourdough bread for the buns to focus the attention on the sliders and sauce and toasting the bread gives just a little crunch. You […]

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 […]

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 […]
