LaurenL, do you have international food markets near where you live? They should have creamed coconut there. The thing with it is, it thickens more than regular coconut milk does, so it's really best for most of the uses in this book, especially the cheese and sauce for the mango wraps.

Also, I'm sad to report some instructions are missing from the Unfishwich recipe. Boo hiss, I'm so sorry about this.

The sticks don't just bake for 10 minutes, this part is missing from after the point the butter sauce is prepared:

Flip the sticks over and bake for another 10 minutes.
Transfer the sticks to a shallow baking pan and drizzle the butter sauce over them. Set the oven to broil. Broil the sticks for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown.

Thanks. That's one of the first recipes I want to try.

First, I need to try that green monster bread.

So, while I'm sure the sandwiches, in and of themselves, are wonderful... is there much in the book for making sandwiches the night before to take to work and sit in your bag all day wrapped in clingfilm waiting to be eaten (and never heated up)? I don't know about others, but I would but rarely make an actual sandwich of a day off. To my mind they are a thing to make the night before and pack for lunch the next day...


I think that's a British thing! Until I started visiting the US I never ever considered a sandwich a meal - it was always like you describe above. But since then, and even before I started testing for this book, we do eat sandwiches more as meals, things like Reubens and Banh Mi and Dagwoods were never meant to be that sort of UK sit in your bag sandwich. It was actually one of the things that shocked me the most the very first time I visited. But yes, I used a fair few of the sandwiches I tested to take to work. Some of them I would even have hot on day one for tea then have leftovers for cold sandwiches the next couple of days. The Pav Bhaji and Curried Sloppy Jo (not sure of exact title) spring instantly to mind there. For some of them, I did take them to work but just changed my transportation method slightly - put the filling in an old margarine tub and the bread/wraps separately and constructed them at work.

The name got switched to Curried Lentil Wraps, since they were more popular that way than sloppy-style.

I hope we won't find more typos and other errors, but just in case, here's the page where we'll list them all: http://havecakewilltravel.com/vegansandwicheserrata/

The cheese recipe for the Pesto Pizza is outstanding!
Made it with coconut milk and it still came out a winner.

I made the bean & nut burger recipe - I really like them! I had to squish them down so they were very thin in order to get them cooked enough for me. But that was fine. They were so easy to make.

I've got the meatball sub on the list for next week, since it's one of the easier looking ones.

An excellent choice. I am going to look through it there later this week.

Green monster bread smells and looks so good. I'm excited to make sandwiches, but trying to be patient.

I made the almond red pepper hummus from EDBV to go along with it.

I'll be going shopping sometime this week, so I'll plan to try some of the sandwich fillings.

Has anyone tried making this bread in a bread machine? For the first time, I didn't want to stray from the recipe, but for the future, I'd rather do it easy in the machine.

Even if I never make anything else from this book, ever (I will), the bread recipe is worth the price of the book.

This is one freaking amazing sandwich, in no small part because of this bread. You can taste the spinach, and it's the softest, nicest sandwich bread imaginable.

I'll add that I am by no means an expert bread baker. I use the bread machine! But ainfollowed all the directions, using the KitchenAid, and it came out absolutely perfect. It wasn't as quick and lazy as the bread machine since there was more cleanup, but it still only took about 20 minutes of active work.

Oh, thanks LW. I have a ton of spinach that desperately needs to be used. I may try to make bread when I get home.

My copy arrived yesterday! The Orange Fennel Summer Rolls look delicious, but I think I might do the napa/scallion variation. In that case, Apricot Fennel Sandwiches might be better to try first. We'll see.

My book came yesterday as well, I made the curried lentil wraps for dinner tonight. They were really toothsome and satisfied the savoury craving i'd had since reading the recipe last night.

I have three recipes on the meal plan next week--it's the first week of school so I want things that'll be easy-ish. I had a hard time narrowing it down to only three--everything looked great!

The meatball sub was really good! It took over an hour, but an hour of that was just cooking the meatballs in the oven. The active stuff only took about 15-20 minutes.

Wow. The chickpea "bacon" is a revelation. Possibly my new favorite sandwich filling. The smokiness and texture of the chickpeas pairs divinely with the PB in the peanut butter banana bacon sandwiches. These sandwiches were delicious, filling, and easy. Instead of bananas, I used roasted plantains coated in a little chipotle powder. The plantains turned out a bit rough even after lots of roasting, so next time I'll probably use use plain ole' bananas. Mediterranean tempeh sandwiches are next!

I made the tempeh arugula caesar wraps for dinner tonight. Ryan & I both loved them. They didn't take much time to put together--the longest time was soaking the cashews & prepping the tempeh & letting it marinate. I think they'd be great wrapped tightly in saran wrap until lunch. It will definitely be in regular rotation.
