Winner, Cabbage Battle
Oh gosh, where to begin? I was inspired to make these hoagies one day while daydreaming about my very first job ….. a waitress(of course) at a little dive restaurant in a super small town. The only good thing about that job was unlimited access to the sundae machine :) and a fabulous hoagie that inspired these tasty sandwiches. Hope you enjoy!
First off you are going to want to whip up some coleslaw...
Sweet Poppyseed! Coleslaw
6-8 cups(loosely) shredded cabbage
1 cup of vegan mayo (for best flavor, use a kind that tastes like "Miracle Whip", if you remember what that tastes like…..my fave is Nasoya-Original.)
1/4-1/3 cup sugar
2 TBS lemon juice
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
Pinch of salt
Splash of soymilk
Ok, ready. Put everything in a big bowl and stir it up. All done! Place in the fridge for an hour before serving.
Then you will need a patty…..
Smokin' Oat 'n Bean Patties
White kidney beans (cannellini beans) could possibly be my favorite bean. They have a wonderful flavor that makes a quick and easy patty.
1 15oz can cannellini beans, drained
1 TBS dried onion
1 TBS dried parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup quick oats
1)Empty beans into medium glass bowl. Use masher or fork to smash until mostly smooth.
2)Mix in salt, pepper, dried onion, and dried parsley. Heat mixture in microwave 1 min. 3)Stir in oats. Heat an additional minute in microwave.
4)Let mixture sit a couple of minutes while you heat the griddle or oven.
5)Form into patties and cook on oiled skillet for about 5 minutes each side. Turn gently. (You can also bake these at 350 for about 25 minutes. I've put them into greased muffin tins and made tiny little loaves.)
Finally, you will need to assemble you Super Hoagie! Take a pumpernickel hoagie roll, slice it in half, add a piece of vegan mozz or swiss. Heat in microwave about 30 seconds to slightly melt cheese. Add tomato slices, then patties. And the best part of all, top it with a huge helping of coleslaw. Now, do your very best to shove it all in your mouth, its worth it!
