To perfect the sandwich, utilize the freshest ingredients available, in amounts and combinations which create a pleasing contrast of texture, flavor and color.
Sandwiches are one of my favorite meals, not only because they are generally quick and easy to make, but because they simply taste great! To me, sandwich making is an art. A properly prepared sandwich, using fresh high quality ingredients and a finely tuned sense of what combines well to create a pleasing contrast of texture, flavor and color can be every bit as exquisite as the finest main dish preparation or the most elegant soup.
As you move through this collection you will notice the wide selection of culinary choices. Maybe you don’t eat veggie meats, maybe you do. In either case you will find sandwiches in this collection for all people to enthusiastically enjoy.
Sandwiches differ in characteristics as vastly as recipes in any other culinary classification differ. The animal-free sandwich is not limited to lettuce, tomato and sprouts on whole wheat bread with mustard–as you will happily see as you read these recipes. I’ve created many new and exciting taste, texture and visual experiences.
Try all of the sandwiches to give yourself good exposure and experience, thereby expanding your expertise as a sandwich maker.
With continued experience you will develop your own style of creating new sandwiches as you become a culinary artist in your own animal-free kitchen! ♥

SAVE THE HEELS OF THE BREAD FOR A TERRIFIC GRILLED VEG CHEESE SANDWICH Years ago, my mother always ate the heels of every loaf of bread, not wanting to waste food. She didn’t require that we kids eat them, only pointed out that they were still bread and good too. None of us wanted them, thinking they were discards. It’s not that she didn’t eat the center slices, only that she wasn’t about to throw away perfectly good food. I changed my mind on that.

HOW TO MAKE FRIED TOFU PLANKS for sandwiches I don’t deep fry anything. I don’t like the dangers it presents in a small living space, but also the high fat content. I reserve my deep fry cravings (if you can call them that) for eating out. This is, however, one of the ways I pan-fry tofu at home. Give it a try! The coating is gluten-free! Makes 1 package of tofu planks – 10 for this recipe.
