I had the idea for a chikn sandwich and was hoping it’d turn out great on the first try. This is how it turned out:
I liked eating the sandwich, I’ve got no problem finishing off the leftovers but I think I’d like to tweak it some more before actually posting the recipe for it. I loved the ooey gooey cheese and the feel of the mushrooms, onion and seitan but even with a sriracha mayo, pepper Jack cheese and pickled jalapeño slices, I just wasn’t getting any heat from this ! I guess the bread and provolone cheese balanced out the heat more than I thought it would.
My parents love this taco, especially with a squeeze of lime juice on top. You can easily turn this into a vegan taco by omitting the queso fresco ! It is a saucy mixture so it was better to prepare these just one taco at a time.
This recipe is in our favorites collection and all I know about the source was that it came from a magazine.
Alright so I don’t know how authentic or not this recipe is, but it delivers on having a taste that keeps you coming back for more !
I just love all the different components and the textures they bring: the seared tofu, the halved snow peas, scrambled eggs, the chopped peanut garnish, the fresh chopped cilantro and had it actually been in stock at the one store that sells it in this town, the bean sprouts. The recipe actually called for whole-wheat fettuccine but for some reason that doesn’t seem to sell that anymore in my town so we used whole-wheat linguine. It also called for fish sauce but did say that you could use soy sauce as a substitute, making it a vegetarian dish. You’ll miss that funky flavor that only fish sauce has but you’ll still get some of that saltiness that fish sauce has.
I’ve been having a hankering for something sweet lately so I decided to try this recipe out.
Even though I was sure I was following their temperature for the oil and the cook time listed, mine look a little darker than the original recipe. I enjoyed the bite of the fried batter before it gave way to the soft, gooey cookie dough inside. You do have to eat these not long after their cooked up or else you’re going to end up with the outer crust get soft and sad.
