Have you ever seen such and amazing looking sandwich in your life?
If you’ve got a better one… let’s hang out because I want to try it! The popcorn tofu po’boy from Wheatsville co-op here in Austin Texas is kind of legendary. You can ask just about any deep fried vegan in town what they recommend on a trip to Austin and probably every single one of them will tell you that the nooch-battered tofu on a fresh roll with the veggies of your choice and surrounded by the homemade creamy cashew tamari dressing is about as good as it gets.
With the Sunny Days in Texas zine you don’t have to travel all the way to Austin to try one (though you still should). All you have to do is find a roll and then make the recipes for both the popcorn tofu and the cashew tamari dressing, which are both in the zine and cover with whatever will make you feel good about yourself. The recipes are the actual coveted Wheatsville originals so they are both to make a restaurant quantity of the ingredients. I haven’t perfected either one on my own yet (I have been busy!) but I can tell you that going with your gut works better than trying to do a straight math conversion.
Eat tofu! Help Animals!
Every post this month for Veganmofo will be celebrating the recipes in the zine Sunny Days in Texas, a fundraiser cookzine to help Sunny Day Farms Animal Sanctuary.
Ok, wait, popcorn tofu po’boy?!?! I’m crazy jealous right now! That’s such an amazing idea!
DID SOMEONE SAY VEGAN PO’BOY?
Dude. Now all I can think about is this sammich. Bah! I can’t wait to start making recipes from the ‘zine when MOFO is over. Right now I’m knee deep in True Blood stuff.
Wow, yum! Sounds crazy good.
Wheatsville is a mandatory stop any time I go to Austin. I can’t wait to make my own po’ boys from the Sunny Days zine!
I’m on my way!
Well I hope that one day I can eat one made by the cafe but until then I’ll have to just make my own!
Do want! Oh my.
Yes. That looks amazing. I’m gonna have to visit Austin the next time I’m in state.
