Vegan Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich



I believe in eating what you want. Last week I filmed with Michael Nussbacher co-founder of Epilogger,, as my official taste tester. As a lover of food, and a vegan, I often feel robbed of flavours and textures in the “Vegetarian Restaurant  world. True recipe success can be determined by whether or not it is “carnivore approved”. Or in other words,  if you can get a carnivore to eat your vegan food and really it. That was my goal with this dish and will continue to be my goal with all of my recipes.


1 lb of your favorite marinated seitan, or seitan recipe

Your Favorite Vegan Cheese Sauce

Sour dough bread or hoagie roll

2 cups Mushrooms, sliced

1 Onions, sliced

4 tbsp coconut oil, divided

2 tbsp coconut sugar

pinch of basil

pinch of oregano

pinch of salt

Organic BBQ Sauce

Caramelized Onions

  • In a large skillet, melt oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onions and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper, and cook, stirring constantly, until the onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the coconut sugar and cook, scraping the browned bits off the bottom of the pan frequently, until the onions are golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Shaved Seitan & Cheese

  • Prepare your favorite seitan recipe, and finely cut with a mandolin. It should resemble shaved meat.
  • In a skillet or frying pan over medium heat, toss seitan with BBQ sauce until well coated and hot.

Sauteed Mushrooms

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Saute sliced mushrooms for 3-4 minutes or until starting to brown.
  • Add dried herbs and a pinch of salt, sauté for 1-2 minutes.

Don’t crowd the mushrooms!

Place several slices of the seitan on the bottom half of the roll, spoon some of the cheese sauce over the seitan, and top with the mushrooms and onions.

    I’m curious what brand of cheese sauce you’ve used. I’ve only tried 2 different kinds but it was such a bad experience that I’m afraid for a third.
    P.s. thanks for the website. I live in a very small town that when people find out I’m vegan they look at me like I have a disease. I have to order a lot of stuff offline, the only options I have here is an isle in the grocery store that is a blend of gluton free, vegan and vegaterian options!
