Kan du huske Cowboytoasten?

For længe siden, før jeg blev vegetar første gang kan jeg huske Cowboytoast, og at det var noget, jeg købte engang imellem. Dog var det paplignende brød mig i den grad imod. Og allerede dengang var jeg jo godt klar over, at det kød, der var i, helt sikkert var af meget tvivlsom oprindelse. Alligevel smagte de okay eller retter ideen var god, men udførelsen var elendig. Nå, jeg blev vegetar, var i mange år, og havde så en pause og er nu tilbage og har været nogle år. Og hvorfor kom jeg så til at tænke på dem igen. Jo, jeg så dem nyeligen i en butik igen. Så de “lever” altså stadig ligesom Parisertoasten (jeg gad vide, hvorfor den hedder sådan). Cowboytoastens navn giver om ikke andet mening.

Nå, men jeg har en ide om, at hvad der kan laves vegetarisk eller endnu bedre vegansk og smage lige så godt som originalen skal gøres. Så jeg kastede mig udi projektet. Jeg har nogle nye veganske burger, som jeg bare elsker. De smager så meget henad kød som det er vel muligt, og dem havde jeg. Resten var rigtig nemt. Brødet er fra Irma, deres superdejlige Baker Street sandwichbrød, og så et løg, lidt ketchup og eventuelt lidt vegansk smør eller alm. Det er faktisk ikke nødvendigt, for du kan vandstege løgene, og jeg prøvede her til morgen bare at smøre ketchup på brødet i et tyndt lag (kun den ene halvdel) og det fungerede fint.

Jeg skal hilse at sige, at denne version er langt, langt bedre end originalen ikke mindst fordi den bare smager bedre, men også fordi den er helt uden den dårlige samvittighed. Jeg har fået en om dagen de sidste mange dage, og jeg er officielt afhængig af vegansk cowboytoast!

1 løg

1 1/4 tsk. karry

1 Hälsens Kök Burger (fås iøvrigt også i Irma)

1 tsk. eller hvor meget der kræves for et tyndt lag ketchup på din toast (ene halvdel)

2 tsk. vegansk smør (kan udelades)

1 panninijern eller sandwichtoaster

Varm din burger i sandwichtoaster eller panninijern
Steg løget karmeliseret og blødt enten med vand eller/og smør sammen med karry
Smør den ene toasthalvdel med ketchup og evt. 1 tsk. vegansk smør (blandet)
Læg toasten sammen med løg og burger og put i sandwichtoaster eller pannijern og der er serveret!

Vegan Croque-Monsieur/Vegansk Parisertoast

Have you tried that you have an idea about, how something is and then it’s all wrong. I have always believed that a Croque-Monsieur in the Danish interpretation – Paris Toast – was a clever invention, which it is in a way, but not the way that I thought. In my head it was properly somethhing having nothing to do with Paris wrong!

Actually a Croque-Monsieur is a totally French thing, called a Croque-Monsieur, and is the Paris Toast (in Denmark) as we know it, just with cheese on top too. That should really be Emmentaler cheese, but since this is a vegan version you use your favorite shreeded pick. Her it is Follow Your Heart Mozarella Shreds

Inside it is Follow Your Heart Smoked Gouda and Torfuky Hickory Smoked Deli Slices all bought at Greenos Veganske Online Supermarked The “butter” on the bread is FRI from Coop which I like much better than the highly publiced Naturli Smørbar. Fri from Coop has a better color, texture and flavor too in my oppionion.

I love that I have the oppertunity. The products are fantastic from both Tofurky and Follow Your Heart. But it get’s really expensive, when you HAVE to buy for at least 200 kr. in the cooling section and on top you have the delivery on top too. It would be nice, if we get to a point, where you could buy these products in the local supermarket. And not neccesarily the ones from Naturli. The Danish deli slices, I’ve tried have been horrible. The stuff from Tofurky could pass as the real deal, but is just better, because it is not and also tasting even better. We have come a long way, and the Danish companies are trying but they’re are decades behind a company as Tofurky i.e. and you can taste that.

I most certainly need to eat more “clean” foods, but sometimes it is nice be able to satisfy that craving and this Croque-Monsieur most certainly delivered satisfaction.

Croque-Monsieur
(1 person)

2 slices of sandwich/toast bread’
1 slice of Tofurky deli slices (use the one you prefer)*
1 slice of Follow Your Heart Smoked Gouda*
App. 2 Tbsp. Follow Your Heart Gourmet Shreds, Mozarella Style

“Butter your bread and but the deli slices and the cheese between the bread (the “buttered side outwards). Then you either start up your Toast-maker until it is ready, and put the Sandwich in there until the cheese has melted – cut in two on the angle and eat (watch you don’t burn yourself on the cheese). If you don’t have a toaster, just head up a pan to very warm and put the toast on there and roast until brown on one side and flip over and roast until cheese is melted. Good as breakfast, lunch or a quick dinner. Can be eaten with steamed veggies or a salad if you want to make it a more substantial dinner or lunch. Enjoy.

*Feel free to use more slices both of the Tofurky and cheese if you want, but that will of course make for more frying time.
