For dinner tonight I decided to kind of switch things up. I took a plain bagel from Franz and turned it into something extravagant a few minutes ago in the kitchen. As you can tell from the picture I am sharing, I utilized only the best quality ingredients to create such a flavorful, portion-packed bagel sandwich that virtually everyone can enjoy. The best part is, I made it all completely vegan.
First and foremost, I toasted the bagels using the Earth Balance European Style Spread. I just used a flat pan to do this, as I didn't want the bagel to be completely toasted. Then, I applied the spread again on the buns followed by some Follow Your Heart Vegenaise. The more I eat this, I must that I am loving it better than mayo. And most of you already know I love mayo, especially on sandwiches. I also added some of the Follow Your Heart Thousand Island Dressing to add some great flavor.
As I continued to build my bagel sandwich, I decided to dice and slice a few things. I used fresh tomato from the vine, spring onion, garden lettuce (romaine) and artichoke hearts. I wanted to keep the flavors simple and not do too much to it, as sometimes less is more.
I have tried so many different types of vegan deli meat. I have even made my own. There is something I love about Tofurky's that just makes me gravitate to the vegan section and make me want to buy every single one. For today's bagel sandwich, I went with the Tofurky Deli Slices in Hickory Smoked and Oven Roasted. And I went with two slices of each.
Although I love dairy cheese, I wanted to enjoy some plant-based cheese for dinner, so I went with Field Roast Chao Cheese Slices in Creamy Original with the Daiya Cheddar Style Slices. I used two pieces each.
To garnish, I just added two spring onions.
Whoever told you that vegans and vegetarians eat horribly lied to you. And if you don't like bagels, I guarantee you would now. Especially if you were to eat this one.
Do you think I will be able to eat all of this? I think I already have the answer to this question. Time to eat.
