Ever since I first got my paws on my copy of Vegan Sandwiches Save The Day, I've been wanting to make their recipe for Green Monster Bread. With a name like that, how could I resist?? Well, I finally did it!
Look at the amazing gorgeous color of this bread dough.
Can you even believe it??
Here it is, sliced open in all its glory.
This is definitely the most successful loaf of sandwich bread I've ever made. As you can see, I got a totally perfect rise. The dough was smooth and pliable and springy and the final result is an easily sliceable loaf of bread that holds together but isn't dense. It's absolutely perfect. Plus, it's got loads of garlic (my true love) and it's glorious green color comes from a big handful of spinach - which means that the bread really has some flavor (in addition to the color). When I saw it come out of the oven all toasty brown, I was afraid that it has lost its green shine, but I needn't have worried!
I made the Mediterranean Tempeh Sandwiches (also from Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day). The fililng is sort of like a potato salad with mayo and pickles and olives and red onion - and tempeh instead of potatoes. It doesn't have a super strong flavor, but it grew on me for sure, and was even better the next day. There are a lot of recipes in the book that call for this bread... but I'm having a hard time not just eating the rest of it as toast. It makes amazing toast!
Watch out for the Green Monster!
He will eat you up!
(but first, he is going to eat his sandwich!)
