Easy Vegan Not Chicken Salad Sandwich

On a hot summer day, I love a cold sandwich, something I thought when originally going vegan that I would be stuck eating PB and J’s. Not that I don’t love a good Pb and J, but variety is always nice. But boy was I wrong. You can make almost anything vegan, which is pretty darn awesome. This is where this vegan not chicken salad sandwich came into the picture.

I used to love chicken salad sandwiches. And there is a local company around here that makes a spectacular one, but I don’t always want to shell out the 7 dollars for the sandwich. So I started trying to mess with my own version.

I started with soy curls. If you have been around here long you know that I love soy curls. They are so versatile and I just can’t get enough of them.

What I love about this base is that you can add whatever you want to it. I am not a big fan of grapes in my savory food, but I know a lot of people love grapes in their chicken salads. So if thats your thing by all means add it. I wouldn’t mind some dried cranberries, I feel like that might be a good addition, but my kids eat those like they may never see them again. So I was out of them when taking pictures of this recipe.

What’s in these Vegan Not Chicken Sandwiches anyway?

  • Soy curls
  • sliced almonds
  • celery
  • parsley, dried
  • dill, dried
  • onion powder
  • vegan mayo
  • Dijon mustard
  • lemon
  • salt
  • pepper
  • bread

How do you make them?

If you have never worked with soy curls then here is a little lesson;

You have to rehydrate them to work with them. You start this by putting them into a bowl, covering them with warm water and letting them rehydrate for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes is up you strain them and then squeeze them like crazy to get all the liquid out that you just put in. Sounds like an oxymoron, but rest assured that’s how the delicious magic happens.

At this point you can pick what shape you want them in. You can either have them be in the longer strip form, or cut them into small pieces.

To save time, while the soy curls are rehydrating you can start making the sauce. You’ll mix all your sauce ingredients in a mediumsized bowl and stir.

Then you’ll add your soy curls and mix. This does taste better as it has time to sit. It needs that time to reabsorb whatever flavor you’re trying to infuse it with.

We served ours on a hoagie like bun and may or may not put potato chips on top of it. We can’t be the only one that does this??

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
