When I received a food request from my hubby that is not “Swedish Meatball” I do accept it (lol).
(He says “Swedish Meatball” too many times, and sadly it is often dismissed…)
He wanted a sandwich with some kind of chicken-like meat and lingonberry.
So this is what I came up with.
When I want a really firm texture that will resemble that of chicken, I like to use a specific tofu from Trader Joe’s.
I forgot to take a picture before I took the tofu out, but at least you can see the package.
This is super firm, and my husband really likes it when I cook it like chicken.
Doesn’t it look good?
For the bread I used vegan croissants from my favorite local vegan bakery/Bodega, Eureka Compass Vegan Food.
Homemade vegan Swiss cheese also gets recruited to the sandwich.
Vegan croissant, garlic herb “ticken,” homemade vegan Swiss cheese, arugula, homemade vegan mayo, and lingonberry jam.
The jam is from World Market.
They recently changed their label, and it’s very pretty.
