Black Friday Melt

                                                             Black Friday Melt

I have to start out by noting this recipe does contain wheat. Transitioning from a animal based-diet to a plant-based  can be difficult for people. There are a lot of different products you can use in place of meat which are minimally processed, much healthier than animal products and they taste great! My husband asked if I could veganize one of his favorite sandwiches from a restaurant in Portland we love. This sandwich will blow your mind it is so damn good. My measurements aren't exact because I just threw it together but you can stack it as wide as you can open your mouth. Tofurky is used in place of turkey. Contains wheat, soy, vegan, nut-free

- Ingredients-
-2-3 slices of tofurky oven roasted or smoked lunch meat
-2 slices of whole grain bread
-sprinkling of vegan cheese (i used daiya mozzarella)
-2 tablespoons of natural cranberry sauce ( i like Fresh & Easy brand cranberry orange relish)
- 1/4 of an onion cut into strips
-1/4 cup of chopped mushrooms
-earth balance buttery spread

Spray medium frying pan. Cook onions and mushrooms over medium heat until soft. Once cooked (3-4) minutes set aside in a bowl. Lightly butter utter each side of bread and lightly pan grill each side until golden brown. Arrange the tofurky and mushroom/onion mixture on one side of bread, sprinkle with a little (or a lot) of cheese. Spread one side of remaining bread slice with cranberry sauce. Bring the two slices together to make a sandwich. YUM!
