Po' Boy Goodness

This was the first recipe I intended to try once I got Veganomicon, but it's taken me til now to get to it.Chile Cornmeal Crusted Tofu Po' Boys....or at least a Po' Boy much inspired by the original recipe. The tofu is made as is called for in V'con, but all my cabbage had since been eaten (mmmmm, coleslaw!) or gone bad since buying it for this recipe, leaving me with an improvised shredded carrot and spinach slaw, all on a store bought vegan hogie bun.

I so meant to heed Isa's cry for pickles on this one but totally forgot about them til I was halfway through my sammich. Ah, well....tomorrow then! The leftovers are plenty and that will make a superb lunch tomorrow!

This is reeeeeeally good, but I think letting the tofu get to warm and not eating super hot makes the flavor stand out much more than it would if you devoured one pipin hot right outta the pan. just sayin. ;)

Mmmm... we loved that tofu but didn't have enough leftovers to make the po'boys. We made it with the green chile/pumpkin seed mole & it was delish!

That tofu does rock, eh? I made it the other night, too and loved it beyond all belief. Try making the green pumpkin seed mole to go on top if you're eating the tofu alone. It's so good and easy!

mmm, the Po' Boy looks delicious! glad to hear it's a worthy recipe (which isn't surprising, since it's from Veganomicon)!

That looks amazing. It wasn't a tester either, so I am genuinely stoked to try it!

that recipe totally stood out when i was doing a cursory read of Veganomicon. i like that you made the slaw with what you had!

That tofu recipe is one of the first ones I bookmarked when we got our copy of V-con.

Hey - congrats to you too! I wanted to comment when you posted the ultrasound picture that it looked very very familiar but I was late in reading that post and we weren't quite ready to share the news with the world yet.
