Vegan Shooter's Sandwich

Vegan Shooter's Sandwich

It wasn't long after Chuck saw this Boingboing post about shooter's sandwiches before he had to try out a veganized version. He picked up a Sourdough loaf from Whole Foods and used two roasted portobello mushrooms in place of steaks. A spread was made of almonds, sun dried tomatoes and kalamata olives thrown together in a food processor. He also added Roasted Red Peppers and Heidi Ho Vegan Cheese from the farmer's market.

It all gets bound up and placed under something heavy (like a box of architecture books) and left that way overnight. (This is what it looked like before, for reference) In the morning you have a very conveniently portable and tasty squished sandwich to unwrap, typically sliced in to wedges like a cake:

We should both have plenty of yummy lunches for the next few days. Chuck's first try at the shooter's sandwich turned out really well, and I could see this becoming a regular meal!
