Shroomy Daiya Tempeh Melt

Quality Ingredients were key, here. Also, evolving leftover Potatoes into a spontaneously delicious soup was key (squared). Bread topped with Vegenaise, sliced Mushrooms and Daiya on one side & Vegenaise, Tempeh and Daiya on the other side were roasted and broiled with a good eye to become extremely melted. Paprika sprinkled on top before Iceberg Lettuce was stuffed between the two slices of greatness.

These sandwiches were wrapped in foil and placed back into the oven for additional meltiness. Sliced and served with Soup, these Vegan Melts were flavorful, quick & easy and beastly hearty.

Avocado Oil was utilized instead of Earth Balance today. Portobello Mushrooms were sliced and thrown on a hot flat cast iron skillet.

Meanwhile, in light Olive Oil, Garlic, Ginger, Onion and Pepper were caramelized before adding Red Wine, Sea Salt and the Mushroom. At the very last moment, Arugula was mixed in.

The bread was charred one side before building the sandwich on each char side. Daiya, Arugula and Mushroom mixture made this sandwich.
