Philly CheeseSteak Sandwiches

This sandwich was inspired by a few key events: 1) hunger, 2) BandMan's suggestion that we have sandwiches for lunch, and c) a dish I made a long time ago with dried enoki mushrooms that would take more time than I'd like to spend typing out the long explanation (not to mention, you'll probably get bored reading it; hell, you're probably bored now).

Just know that this is a crazy delicious sammich that deserves respect. Annnnnd a nice cold frothy beer served next to it.

Hoagie Rolls

cashew cream sauce
2 tsp stone ground mustard
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp vegan butter
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp almond milk
  1. Combine all ingredients into your blender and give 'em a whirl. 
  2. When you're ready to stuff your face, heat the cheese sauce on the stove.
olive oil
1 onion, sliced
2 oz of dried shiitake mushrooms

9 mini sweet peppers
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp montreal steak seasoning
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tbsp flour
1/4 vegetable bouillon 

1 tbsp soy sauce
  1. Soak the dried mushrooms in warm water for about 30 minutes. Drain but make sure to save 1/4 cup of the mushroom water for later. Slice the mushrooms and set aside.
  2. Heat some oil up at mid-high heat and add the sliced onions. Cook them until they start to brown up. 
  3. Add mushrooms, peppers, oregano, steak seasoning, liquid smoke, salt and pepper; cook for about 10 minutes. 
  4. Bring the heat down to low and coat the veggies with the flour. Combine the 1/4 of a block of bouillon with 1/4 cup of the reserved mushroom to make a broth. Stir in broth and soy sauce; bring to a simmer. Let that happen on low until you've heated the cheese sauce and prepared your hoagie rolls. I split the hoagie rolls in half and grilled on the stove top with olive oil.
  5. Spread the cheese sauce on the rolls and sammich in the steak filling. 
  6. OMG.


  1. This looks fabulous, but for the cashew cream sauce don't you need cashews? If so how much? is this recipe enough for two?

    1. Hey Amber (we have matching names)! Thanks for leaving that comment...I didn't realize that I FORGOT to link the cashew cream sauce to it's recipe. DOH! If you click it now, you'll find cashew cream sauce with actual cashews in it. :)


  2. Thank you Amber! I appreciate you replying back so quickly. I really enjoy your blog. I am going to try your cashew sauce tonight! Thanks. :)

    1. I try the cashew sauce almost every night. Enjoy it :) it's a gift from the vegan gods.

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
