If you tell your guy you’re making him a vegan sub chances are he’s not going to be overly excited about it (I know this from experience LOL!!) BUT if you tell your guy you’re making him a MONSTER sub and you serve him this … he’ll lose his mind!! I mean, they don’t need to know it’s vegan!! We can keep some things to ourselves, right ladies?! LOL! I mean, fair enough … when someone who isn’t vegan thinks about a vegan sub they automatically assume it is going to be boring and dry. Welp. That’s not the case here!
The key to a good vegan sub is LOTS of spreads and sauces!! Fill that baby up!! LOL! We’re a saucy kind of home so we like to load our sandwiches up with tons of hummus, spreads, lots of creamy vegan cheeses, etc! Basically any sauces you have in your fridge just go all out and load them on there!!
Some of my favourite sauces and spreads include:
- Hellman’s Vegan Dressing
- Hampton Creek Just Mayo Chipotle
- Spread ‘Em Kitchen Co Spreads
- Kite Hill Cream Cheese Spread
In addition to the staple ingredient that’ll have you lickin’ those fingers clean … you’re also going to want to add some roasted veggies (I LOVE roasted peppers and tomatoes!), most definitely some pickled veggies like jalapenos, beets, pickles (of course) and then top it off with some fresh veggies like shredded lettuce, onion, avocado, etc!
On this particular Monster Vegan Sub we used the following …
SAUCES (Start by adding these on to your fresh baguette … I use half a baguette for one sub!):
FRESH VEGGIES/PICKLED VEGGIES (layer these on top of the sauces):
- Roasted red peppers
- Sliced onion
- Sliced avocado
- Grated carrots
- Fresh arugula
- Pickled banana peppers
- Roasted (or fried!) then sliced portabello mushroom
MORE TOPPINGS! (These you’ll want to put on last, just before you serve it!):
- Olive oil
- White or red wine vinegar
- Salt & pepper
If you’re wondering why you would top the sub off with olive oil and white/red wine vinegar … just trust me … it makes the sub taste like an authentic Italian sub this way and it’s soooo damn tasty!!
Are there any toppings you would add to this sub?? Share your suggestions below!!!! I can’t WAIT for you to try this!
