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.

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…

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
