VeganMoFo2012 Day 4: Mushroom Ceviche and a Cubano Sandwich



If you're were a regular reader of my blog last year you will know that I love cooking from Viva Vegan! At last count I had about 20 recipes left to go and I still plan on making them all... maybe that will be my challenge once VeganMoFo is over. Anyway, I have more from VV! to share with you today:

Mixed Mushrom Ceviche

This was already gluten and soy free but I did switch the oyster mushrooms for just plain buttons but I didn't make any other changes. I'm not a fan of raw mushrooms so I didn't think I'd like this very much. I liked the flavours, the sweet potato and the corn but I wasn't a fan of the mushrooms themselves.



Cubano Vegano Sandwich

I'd never had a non-vegan Cubano but I was really looking forward to trying this. To make this gluten free I used a Schar baguette and replaced the seitan with mushrooms. To make this soy free I used soy free Cheezly and I left out the vegan ham and didn't bother adding anything in its place.


I loved this, I don't usually eat pickles except for on burgers but they totally worked here and everything else worked well together. Maybe next time I'd make some gluten free chorizo and add some of that to this sandwich.


Do you love Viva Vegan! too? What's your favourite recipe?

I'm happy to see more recipes you're making from Viva Vegan. I LOVE that cookbook. (How excited are you for Terry's next book, coming out at the end of the month? I can't wait!) There are so many stellar recipes, but the one I make the most is the Latin Baked Tofu. My next two favorites would be arroz con seitan and seitan saltado. (Since you're staying away from gluten, I bet Soy Curls would work in its place.)

Oops! I just noticed you're soy-free too. Disregard that recommendation! :D

Mushroom ceviche sounds so good! Obviously the mushrooms aren't cooking in the vinegar like a regular ceviche, but the flavors would be great anyway!

I love VV but it's been sadly neglected lately. My favourite recipes are the Drunken Beans and the yellow garlic rice (usually together). I could eat them for days (and have done!).

The Pastel de Choclo uses a lot of dishes but is worth it.

I don't have Viva Vegan but I love a good Cuban sandwich. The pickles make it!

Wow, these look yum, especially the cubano vegano!

Mel said...

I really need to try the cubano vegano, yours looks so good! I tend to use VV for staples like refried beans, cashew crema, seitan and cilantro-lime rice more than anything but I have so many other favourites in there too.

Re. the GF pan rolls. I had wondered if they would work with rice paper wrappers too. It definitely would be simpler than making GF pancakes which may fall apart.

Every time I grab go through that cookbook I am tempted to make the Cubano Vegano sandwich. I might do what you did and replace the seitan with mushrooms. Gluten doesn't bother me, but I prefer mushrooms! I bet it would be great with the gluten free chorizo too!

It's hard to choose a favorite from Viva Vegan, but the sweet potato and black bean tamales are up there. And the alfajores!

About Supernatural - I am a scaredy cat too! I am not ashamed to admit that whenever a ghost scene is coming, I look the other way. Vampires, demons, zombies, everything else I can take, but ghosts freak me out!

VeggieAmanda said...

The Mixed Mushrom Ceviche is such a beautiful plate. It looks fresh! I've also never had a meat version of the cubano. And who would want one with this option!

GiGi said...

I must add that book to my collection. I keep meaning too. I have it on my Amazon wish list, but maybe I'll make this delicious looking sandwich first. What's Cheezly. Is that like Daiya?

Nikki said...

That cubano looks really amazing. I wish I could find a gluten free baguette around here because I would make that sandwich immediately.

Allysia said...

Viva Vegan is one of the best cookbooks ever! I really love the peanut stew (forget the recipe name) with all the fixins like pickled onions, cilantro and avocado. The yellow rice is ridiculously good. And I've made a lot of the rice and bean style dishes, all with a hefty amount of success and yum!

Joey said...

I've never had a Cubano sandwich either, but having seen that one, I really really fancy one! Extra pickles over here too!

Kittee Bee Berns said...

I love this book so much, too! So many xgfx recipes and tasties! I have to admit, I mostly use the book for the tamale recipes, cuz they are amazing. I use Soy Curls instead of the seitan, but you could totally use a meaty mushroom instead. Do you get sick of mushrooms??? We need to find something else that's equally as awesome for you. Have you played with green brined jackfruit much?

How cool you're also cooking from VV. Don't ask me for my favourite recipe, there are too many!

Erinwiko said...

I've heard so much about that sandwich but I've never made it. I need to fix that asap! And I can never go past the Viva Vegan corn empanadas, they're one of my favourite things in the world to cook.

Caitlin said...

i will definitely have to try the scharr bread. i've been meaning to find some. it always looks so much better than the other brand i tend to get. and that sandwich looks awesome. i was just reminded from last year about how i wanted to buy viva vegan ;)

omgoshimvegan said...

This looks great! I have the Viva Vegan cookbook but haven't made anything from it. I'm going to have to make something from that cookbook soon. I'm drooling over here.

I love Viva Vegan! I really love the Setan recipes, Tomatillo Salsa and the Arroz Con Seitan.

Maggie Muggins said...

I don’t own it (yet), but when I got it from the library my favorite recipe I made was the peanut butter stew (can’t remember the name). It was so freakin’ good. I really need to invest in that book.

eatingwiththerabbits said...

The sandwich looks so good! I have Viva Vegan and I love reading through the book but so far I've only made a few things from it. That's great that you made so many of the recipes already - I'll go look through your archives for inspiration!

The first dish looks good too (love the colours!) but sadly I'm not a big fan of raw mushrooms either. It's odd - I remember my parents used to give them to me whole and I guess I liked them, but now raw or undercooked mushrooms are just very unappealing to me. Maybe I would like them if they were marinated really well...

mamabebehawk said...

This Cubano Vegano sandwich looks delicious!

Dawn said...

I want that sandwich. Especially with the pickles. Sounds like the chorizo would be a great addition. Or eggplant bacon maybe?

Erin said...

Your take on the Cuban sounds really tasty! I do love a good Cuban filled with fake meats and cheese, but I think yours is a little healthier :)

I went vegan in 2006 and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love baking cupcakes and reading books and often wish I could combine both activities without disastrous results. If I’m not in the kitchen you’ll find me photographing food, cuddling my three kittehs or re-watching my favourite tv shows over and over again with my boyfriend. Due to food sensitivities I don't eat gluten or soy and yes, vegan, gluten free and soy free food is still delicious! Twitter: CupcakeKitteh
