Do you ever get a craving for greasy diner food? Food that reminds you of your childhood, or your college dorm cafeteria?
Yeah. Me too.
This is a vegan replica of my favorite food from my dorm cafeteria – a grilled turkey and cheese sandwich. I must say, this is a PERFECT match. It satisfies that craving to the very core…each bite a crispy, crunchy, gooey, salty, delicious taste of nirvana. All without bothering a single cow or turkey.
I won’t post a recipe here (because really, who needs a recipe for grilled cheese?), but I will tell you what I used: two slices of whole wheat bread, Daiya mozzarella shreds, two hickory smokedTofurky deli slices, and copious amounts of Earth Balance slathered on the outside. Grilled to perfection on my trusty cast-iron skillet, which unfailingly delivers a golden-brown, crusty finish. Mmmmmm…
I know, I know…lots of processed foods, lots of fat, lots of salt. Just because it’s vegan doesn’t mean it is health food! You didn’t think vegans ate nothing but rice and beans and veggies, did you? 😉
