here it is ... vegan open-faced turkey sandwiches

3 points before i post the recipe:

1. the rumors are true, i don't know how to make anything except stir-fry in portions less than huge
2. my camera accidentally was left in the "on" position all day, so there aren't pictures
3. i just proved my dad wrong, he said he'd have to give up his favorite food to go vegan

open-faced turkey sandwiches, vegan style baby!

you'll need:
vegan "turkey" slices (i like tofurkey peppered kind)
4 or more slices of toast (i like wheat, and my friends say that's best in this recipe)
5 potatoes
1 tbsp margarine
1 cup soy milk
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3-6 cloves garlic
2-3 slices yellow onion
1/2 cup flour
4 tsp nurtitional yeast
4 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
2 cups water (so i hope you aren't in a drought...)
1/2 tsp sage
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
5-6 white mushrooms (optional)

mashed potatoes (mom's recipe, veganized):
5 potatoes - washed, peeled and cut into cubes
1 tbsp margarine
1 cup soy milk
salt & pepper to taste

bring water to boil in large pot. add potatoes and allow to boil until potatoes are relatively soft all the way through. drain out the water and add margarine & half of the soy milk to the pot. blend well. add other half of soy milk. blend well. add salt & pepper to taste (i usually use about 2 tsp of each)

(while potatoes are boiling, make the gravy)
gravy (i got this from some "how to have a vegan thanksgiving" site back in the fall):
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3-6 cloves garlic (minced well)
2-3 slices yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup flour
4 tsp nurtitional yeast
4 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
2 cups water (agua for our spanish-speaking friends)
1/2 tsp sage
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
5-6 white mushrooms, sliced (optional, and i leave these out about 90% of the time)

measure vegetable oil into saucepan. cook garlic and onion in it 2min. on medium heat until onion is tender. add flour, yeast & soy sauce to make a paste. gradually add water, stirring constantly with wire whisk. bring to boil on medium heat, stirring constantly. add pepper, sage, mushrooms and salt. if too thin, add flour or cornstarch in small increments.

when everything is ready, throw some slices of toast in the toaster. put a few slices of non-turkey on a plate and microwave 12-15 sec. after it's done, tear them into pieces about the size of a half-dollar.

place 2 slices of toast on a plate next to each other. generously pile mashed potatoes on top. add 2-3 slices worth of non-turkey bits. generously pour gravy on top.

(this probably also works with vegan roast beef if you find some, as that's quite popular in open-faced sandwiches)

enjoy!
