Tofu Lettuce Tomato Sandwich, a New Vegan Cookbook & a Giveaway

Tofu Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

There are some really good vegan cookbooks being published these days. What a relief. I remember the days when you were lucky to get a dry as dust burger when you were out. Now there’s all to play for. Award winning vegan street food pioneers David & Charlotte Bailey ‘s book: Fresh Vegan Kitchen, is one of the good ones. Their TLT or tofu lettuce tomato sandwich has completely won me over to the wonders of smoked tofu. I have a copy to giveaway for one lucky reader. You’ll find details near the end of the post.

Fresh Vegan Kitchen

Fresh Vegan Kitchen: delicious recipes for the vegan & raw kitchen by the founders of Wholefood Heaven, David & Charlotte Bailey, is out in paperback this month. It contains over 100 interesting and tasty wholefood recipes from around the world, including raw and gluten-free ones. Some of them are familiar favourites and some I’ve never come across before.

Fresh Vegan Kitchen: delicious recipes for the vegan and raw kitchen

The book starts off with a couple of pages on the health benefits of raw food and some vegan cooking tips. The action kicks off quite quickly with a chapter on Breakfasts. I do love breakfast and if I had a life of leisure, it would be my favourite meal of the day. As it happens I’m usually dashing around too much to enjoy it. The very first recipe is this tofu lettuce tomato sandwich, which is more concisely named TLT sandwich in the book. This is followed by recipes for g’raw’nola (raw granola), black rice pudding, eggy bread and more.

Other chapters are as follows: Soups, Small plates & street food, Salads, Curries & mains, Sides & dips, Desserts, Pickles, spreads & treats and Drinks & smoothies. David & Charlotte are keen to ensure that their recipes, whilst delicious, are also healthy. Even the sweet recipes are mostly ‘sugar free’. Borage and blueberry snow cones are made with rice syrup, raw chocolate brownies are made with dates and the silken tofu chocolate mousse with maple syrup. The sugar recipes do look good though: poached pears with vanilla cashew cream, peanut and black sesame sweet dumplings and churros with dark chocolate dipping sauce – sigh! 

What I particularly liked about the book

If this tofu lettuce tomato sandwich recipe is anything to go by, we’re all in for a fabulous treat.

Fresh Vegan Kitchen TLT Sandwich

The global nature of the recipes really appeals to me. I’m always keen to try vegetarian food from other cultures; they often have a long history of vegan or vegetarian eating and have much to teach us. I’m particularly keen to try making the gyoza dumplings with black vinegar dipping sauce, the ba0 zi steamed buns and Vietnamese summer rolls. As well as food from the Far East, there are plenty of Indian, Mexican and Middle Eastern dishes as well as a few from Europe such as farinataarancini and caesar salad.

The mix of cooked and raw recipes is a nice one. I’m rather wedded to my cooked food, but I do try and get something raw in each day and this book provides a few more ideas. Raw pad thai is calling to me with its Asian flavours and sweet and sour sauce, as is sunomono, a cool and crisp cucumber salad with seaweed. I was interested to note a recipe for raw borsht. I’d come up with something similar a couple of months ago when trying to use up the beets from my beet kvass. Great minds think alike, obviously!

What I think could be improved on

My main quibble with this book is that it’s in paperback. I can see this being a keeper, which means I shall have a hard time stopping it from falling apart. I do try and look after my books, but it’s hard to keep a well used cookbook in good condition at the best of times and softbacks can be a touch too fragile.

There are a few ingredients that probably aren’t that easy to get hold of, such as probiotic powder to make coconut yogurt and raw nut cheese, but most are easily available.

Tofu Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

The secret to this most delicious tofu lettuce tomato sandwich is the smoked tofu. I’d never actually eaten smoked tofu before trying out this recipe. I say recipe, but it’s really an assembly job. Now I’m a convert. Fry it up and you have something that almost, dare I say it, resembles bacon. It’s also easy to buy now and is available in supermarkets as well as health food shops.

Tofu Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

As per usual, I didn’t quite follow the recipe as given below. I went a little lighter on the coconut oil and used a teaspoon rather than a tablespoon to fry the smoked tofu in. It produced a delicious crispy result despite the reduced amount. I went a little easier on the mayonnaise too. I also swapped the sauerkraut for some carrot pickles and kohlrabi pickles as that’s what I had to hand. But I reckon a good sauerkraut would be fantastic and I really ought to get back into making it again. The book gives a recipe for this, of course.

So, I sandwiched the crispy smoked tofu in some crusty wholemeal bread along with mayonnaise, mustard, crunchy romaine lettuce, ripe tomatoes, carrot pickles and homegrown parsley. The authors describe this tofu lettuce tomato sandwich as a great brunch for lazy mornings. I made two large ones for lunch, one for CT and one for me and it was one of the best lunches we’d had in a while.

    Thick, spicy stew with loads of root veg, pulses and pearl barley – and of course dumplings!

    Mine is a vegetable stir fry 🙂 because I can vary it depending on what I have in the fridge and it’s so easy to throw together!

    I love Thug Kitchen’s Lemony Lentil Soup recipe – warming, filling but super easy and tasty.

    As the only vegan in my house, these recipes look amazing for helping my friends and family reduce their meat intake and maybe even convert!!!

    I use chickpeas a lot in stews and curries and chickpea with mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach is my favourite.

    I love doing a veg stew, I put chickpeas and lentils (different types) to bulk out the stew to make it more filling

    Myself and one of my daughters are long-term vegetarians, myself for 30 years and my daughter for 10. My husband and other daughter regularly enjoy vegetarian main courses with us. My daughter and I have recently become vegan, and are newly discovering delicious and nutritious meals. Our current favourite is grilled pumpkin & black bean burgers, served on vegan rolls, and filled with delicious toppings such as roasted tomato, lettuce and dill pickle (kosher as this is vegan). We love it, as it is a quick and easy meal to make at the weekend, and is the perfect relaxed t.v meal for a Saturday movie night.

    Mine has to be a sweet potato spinach and chick pea curry ! The reason being when my step sons first came to live with me in their early teens . They’d only eat chicken nuggets and take aways as that’s what they had always been fed. My veg curry was the first time they are a full healthy veggie meal . They ain’t looked back…

    Curried Coconut Quinoa and Greens with Roasted Cauliflower. Delicious and so full of flavor! The coconut milk in the quinoa is divine.

    I love no-meat mince n tatties! I make red lentils with peas, carrots and mushrooms and make either sweet potato mash or white potato and parsnip mash!

    We love vegetable curries with rice, vegetable chilli with lentils instead of mince and stir fry with tofu. All of these are part of our usual meal plans so we are eating meat free on many occasions which is healthier and cheaper but not lacking in taste.

    I like to make a vegetable and tofu stir fry with spring onions, chinese leaf and whatever other vegetables are to hand. I often used dried tofu whuch I rehydrate with boiling water and some soy sauce. It has a really chewy texture which you don’t get from many vegan foods.
