Chik'n Sandwich

A vegan chik'n patty on a wheat bun, oven roasted sweet potato fries, and some apple crisp for dessert. Beverage: almond amazake.
Verdict: Thank you to Amy and little my for suggesting sweet potato fries. I hadn't made them in quite a while, and they were very tasty. Little shmoo didn't touch them (oh well, more for me!), but he ate everything else. 4 stars.
P.S. Tomorrow is a noon release day -- sorry, no lunch box!

Geez. First I have to suffer the weekends with no Schmoo lunchboxes...then they have the nerve to let him out of school early. Do they not know I need my schmoo fix? And now that I think about it...how are we going to survive school holidays and summer vacation? I hope you're working on that cookbook, my dear. :) Is the apple crisp recipe going to be listed? Yummers.

Amy said...

Oh well, sorry the fries didn't work for shmoo--but glad you liked them! By the way, your corn pone recipe has become a weekly staple at our house. Mmmmmm. So easy and good. Take care! Amy

Sorry, shelly! I could go to the school district and ask for year-round classes, but somehow I don't think they'll go for it. LOL. And yes, that apple crisp is definitely in the cookbook -- it's my husband's favorite dessert, so I can promise it will be the most-tested recipe in the book!!

Amy, I'm so glad your family likes the corn pone, that's great to hear! Now you've made me hungry for some, too...

These lunches look great. I have a qustion though, did you buy the vegan chik'n patty or make it? If you bught it, what brand did you chose?
I'm also currious as to what you cook up for breakfests....? Im getting better at making better lunches for myself, but breakfest is so hard for me being vegan.. Ideas?

Ok, I've hovered around here long enough marveling over the greatness, and I have to finally put in my two cents. YOU ROCK. I'm addicted to this place. I just ordered one of the laptop lunchboxes for my hubby and I'm going to attempt to use some of your amazing ideas for him. I have JUST made the transition to veganism and I'm trying to bring my whole family into it. The kids are doing great (5 and 2), but hubby still goes out to lunch once in a while and eats bad stuff. I've seen rumors of a book. Do it. When can I buy it? Seriously, I'm stalking your blog. =) Keep up the great work!!

re: vegan breakfastes Peta has a list of vegan cereals that you can try.. we have cereal occasionally with soymilk. I eat a lot of bagels with toffuti cream cheese you can also spread with other stuff various jams, peanut butter, tahini, etc. Also we make tofu scrambler - with the packets either tofu mate or the other brand can't think of it off the top of my head. We add various veggies - mushrooms, onions, peppers, whatever else. Sometimes I make those as breakfast wraps and add salsa. We eat smartbacon or soy sausage with breakfasts if we eat something lite like cereal with soymilk. You can also make vegan pancakes and waffles. There's all sorts of things vegan stuff you can do for breakfast!

I can't see the pic but it sounds yummie. I have to catch up on your entries - I haven't been on in 5 days. Sorry!

Hi, vegan marissa! We use Boca Chik'n patties, they're Little shmoo's favorite.

Re. breakfast, I would say start with vegan versions of what you used to eat. We actually found breakfast to be the easiest meal to veganize, since we usually have fruit, cereal with milk, toast or bagels, or hot porridge -- oatmeal, cream of wheat, polenta, etc. Just substitute nondairy milk for cow's milk.

There are fantastic recipes for pancakes, waffles, tofu scrambles, smoothies, etc. out there. One good cookbook to start with is "May All Be Fed" -- the pancake recipes are excellent. Check your library for some vegan cookbooks. Hope that helps! :-)

i think they should start having school on weekends just so i don't go through vegan lunch box withdrawal. :)

wow, your lunches are so inspired! I'm copying your lunch ideas for me. Thank you.

Harmonia said...

I can see the pic now! Glad I can! That bread looks great!

Have you tried the Gardenburger "Flame Broiled Chik'n Grill" I have to drive 30 minutes to a Whole Foods that has them and buy about 6 boxes at a time. They are SOOOOOO good! They also have an herb and breading crusted version which is still good but not for sandwiches - better with mashed potatoes and some greens.

There has been some discussion on another website regarding whether or not Boca Chick'n Patties are vegan. I finally looked at the ingredient list this weekend. They definitely have egg in them where they are sold locally. Do they not include egg in WA? It would be an interesting fact to know that within the US, the ingredients are different.

LOVE your site!!! Very inspiring variety.

Hi, carrol,

Yes, it was a Boca Chik'n Patty. It is vegan, but their website does note that they "recently" changed the recipe to make them vegan; perhaps you have an older batch? Here is their website listing which products are vegan:
