I've made a couple of great sandwiches so far... but just now I've got a question. I made the meatballs for the subs last night and they didn't really turn out at all. There was so much liquid left when it was supposed to be absorbed. So I baked them for another 40 minutes(!!). Still, they are really sort of raw and gluteny inside, and not very yummy. I am sad about this. Did I do something wrong? any tips? Is the 300 F temp in the book correct? Also - they have no salt or pepper - maybe that would have helped? I didn't even notice that until I tasted them. Has anyone here had good luck with the meatlessballs? Should I try again? thank you!

Mine came out okay. I'd agree that there was a bit too much liquid in the pan. A couple of my softer ones fell apart because they got so saturated, but most of them were great. Does the book only say 300F? I may have turned the temperature up.

So far, I've only made the Country Sausage Sandwiches, but OMG! Best. Breakfast. Ever. I love that pepper mayo sauce!

Thanks creep. I'm not sure how to save mine at this point. More baking I guess? I don't want to give up on them.

Amey, I'm not sure what happened with yours! I would try baking them more, and possibly increasing the temp to 325. They did fine in testing, so I'm really not sure. But I'm sorry!

They definitely shouldn't be gluteny inside. That's not good!

Okay, I'm now officially excited about this book and I can't wait to get my copy (thanks pandacookie, celine, and tami!) It looks like a load of tasty fun.

So, is creamed coconut different than coconut butter?

Well, I made the Curried Lentil Wraps without creamed coconut. Just used coconut milk and no water and decided to wing it. Really delicious! Leftovers will go over rice for lunch tomorrow and I'm already thinking about it.

Yeah the creamed coconut is a product from "let's do organic" they talk about it the beginning of the book.

Over here the creamed coconut is quite widely available in supermarkets and Indian shops. I'm surprised it seems so hard to find over there.

The kid requested the Party Monster for dinner last night, but there wasn't time. Looks like I'll be dragging my sick tail into the kitchen to make some bread in a few.

Thanks Tami, I ditched that bunch. I will try again though, because my husband is a big time lover of meatball subs. :) It must be user error on my part, if everyone else had them turn out fine. Everything else has been a big success!

Amey, there is no telling. It is so hard to trouble shoot long distance. But I certainly hope your next batch is better! And I admire you for giving it another shot. Here's hoping!

I just got this, and there are so many sandwiches I want to try. Any suggestions for which one to start with? For this week, I need something relatively easy (like, I can't start making the gobbler slices, and I don't really have time to bake bread) that will travel well in a lunch box. Packing the different components separately and then assembling the sandwich at lunch time is fine.

The blackened tofu is really easy. I can't remember what all the sandwich was supposed to have on it, but the tofu itself was easy. You can just put whatever sounds good with it. It's great on a salad too.

Amey - I bet it will turn out better the next time.
The first time I made Moo Frees, I totally messed up, it was a big soggy mess. every time I've made it (to the point my very anti "I don't want to eat vegan meats" best friend, took one, ate it, and thought it was pretty darn good. quote/unquote.) :) You probably missed a step yet thought you did it.

I just got my copy today and there are so many fun looking sandwiches I have no idea what to make first! I think I'll probably start with some of the seitan cold cuts, though.

I did notice that a few of the recipes call for wine. If I don't use wine, is there something else I can put in instead, or can I just replace with another liquid?

Check out page 15 in the glossary-type thing under "Vegan Wines", we made a note how to replace wine with non-alcoholic stuff.

Excellent! Must have missed that - I was sure I looked at every page ;-)

We have been eating the Greek burgers for several days now. So good! Before steaming they were crumbly and I thought they would not hold together. But they were perfect.
