Tofu Hoagies

I made the sandwiches that Ruthie shared with us: tofu meatball sandwiches. Unfortunately, i did not go on a hike after, but i did watch Lost, so it's sort of the same, right?

Yum yum is all i can say. J found this great tofu at our local health food store called La Soyarie that are baked tofu cutlets, from Gatineau, Quebec. What a great find. There were breaded and marinated to perfection already, so i didn't have to do too much. We then added ready made pasta sauce to it, and vegan gourmet cheeze. It melts really well but is the weirdest texture - wet and gooey. We complemented the sandwiches with a light arugula salad.

The sandwich was finished off with the freshest Portuguese buns in the world. Has anyone seen that ad where 2 boys giggle everytime their mom says 'buns.' That's me now...giggling at 'buns'. Buns!

Anyway i digress. J said this was a yummy sandwich and our neighbours agreed. We have weekly dinner dates with them and watch Lost together, and they usually sample the vegan cookalong dishes. J said that it's even better than the fantastic eggplant parmesan sandwich at the St. Lawrence market and it's famous. I will happily make this again!

Woohoo! :) I'm glad you liked the idea and your neighbors too!

I had a horribly busy week :( I may make sandwiches next week as well as the soup. Seem like a good combo. :)
