Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day Giveaway!

Hey kids!  It's a giveaway!

That's right!  You can win your very own copy of Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes' fabulous new cook book Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day!  I was first got acquainted with this project when Tami contacted me seeking permission to use the "steam, then bake" method of my veggie lunch meat.   I said yes, of course, since sharing recipes and methods is what the vegan blog community is all about (after all, the veggie lunch meat itself was a version of Julie Hasson's sausages).  So, there I am on p. 183 with a "huge thanks" from the authors (the nod to Julie Hasson is on the previous page).  I reviewed Tami's previous cookbook back in 2010, and I emailed back and forth with Celine back when I first started my blog.  So, every though we have never met in person, I feel like I am sharing in the great success of some good friends.

The first thing that strikes you about this book is the art.  Celine took all the photos and they are perfection.  Combined with Debbie Berne's book and cover design, the book is a visual feast.

As you can see from the table of contents, Celine and Tami have redefined what "sandwich" means.  Turns out, you can eat sandwiches for every meal of the day!  You could start with Berry-Stuffed French Toast Pockets for breakfast, eat a Ratatouille Sandwich for lunch, move on to Chickpea Shawarma for dinner, and end the day with Oreo Wafflewiches.  Yes, please!

The book also has the basics covered, from bread (I would have liked to see more recipes, but I know baking scares many people off), to several veggie meats.  Scattered throughout the book are various dressings, spreads, pates, and toppings.  There really is something for everyone here.

CONTEST DETAILS:
Residents of Canada and the U.S. only, please.
To enter, leave a comment about the book in the comment section below by 6:00 pm EST November 12.  One entry per person.  Each entry will be assigned a number, and the winner chosen by a random number generator.  Good luck!

This book looks amazing! From the photos of the food, to the table of contents. This would be a great book for someone with a full time job that needs help coming up with ideas for lunch. Someone like me! :D

Ally said...

This book looks great. I have been looking for more options for lunch (besides leftovers) and this would help a lot.

Monica said...

I'd love to see this book! One of the things I've missed most about being vegan is being able to make a good meal out of a sandwich. Love your blog, by the way!

kelly g. said...

Those french toast pockets sound amazing. Someone - on the blog tour, I think - made them & posted a photo, and...I think I'm in love.

I need this cookbook! I'm totally stumped with vegan sandwiches. Don't know why, but I have a mental block and there must be more than fake salami out there...

Cheri said...

This book would be really helpful to anyone who packs a vegan lunch for their kiddos.

Johanna said...

I've never been much of a sandwich eater (don't like people's hands in my food that much). With this book, I plan to change. The seitan/deli slices are what I'm looking forward to, also, since buying them is costly.

jamie trimble said...

Sounds like it would be a wonderful addition to our kitchen! We need a broader spectrum of sandwiches in our house. Thanks for posting and hosting the giveaway!

Circa Style said...

This book would be so useful for me! I work late hours and by the time I get home, I don't really feel like cooking for long. My fiance and I have created some really interesting sandwiches over time, but would love this book for some new options!

Jonathan said...

I make sandwich bread regularly but I can never think of what to make aside from BBQ seitan, PB&J, or "egg" salad. This looks fantastic.

Tiffany Bartell said...

Yay! This book looks scrumptious!

chocolateyarugula said...

I'm still salivating over the Superbowl sandwich that my local Whole Foods made. The bread was in the shape of a football. And, yes, they cut in the cross-stitching on top of the bread!

I'd love to win the book and be able to wow friends with amazing sandwiches.

FoodFriendsFun said...

So excited to serve a yummy vegan sandwich to my meat-loving dad!

Peaceful Vegan... said...

I have loved sandwiches since childhood, my favorite simple sandwich these days is made with my dill bread quick bread and topped inside with FYHeart Mayo, avocado, tomato, thinly sliced cuke, and red leafy lettuce - and now as a Vegan sandwiches please me even more because of all of the endless possibilities. I will definitely seek out this cookbook, I am giddy with anticipation!! I do hope I have a good chance to win a copy, Vegan Dad's time for posting was 7:29, which is my birthday..... it's a sign...

Deb said...

Most weekdays, when time for cooking has to be juggled around two fulltime jobs, we have sandwiches. A sandwich is an incredibly versatile and stress-free vehicle for quickly putting a casual yet nutritious and tasty meal on the table. The options for fillings are practically unlimited and they can be served cold alongside a steaming bowl of soup or hot off the grill with a side salad. I am always trying to come up with new combinations of vegan ingredients and am sure this cookbook would dramatically expand my sandwich repertoire! I would LOVE to own a copy of this cookbook!!

Joy Clendening said...

I love sandwiches but I feel like I'm always eating the same old thing. I don't really have a creative streak when it comes to sandwiches so it's just field roast all the time. This book could really broaden my horizons a bit.

Catherine said...

I would love to win this book. Thanks for the opportunity!

MandeeFranee said...

This book sounds awesome! I'd love some more creative sandwich ideas! As a newborn vegan ;) I'm just now getting a look at a few blogs and recipe books for meal ideas. With three non-veg kids (that eat an all veg-diet at home because it's what mom makes) can use all the tasty recipes I can get!

Jenna Z said...

When I first heard about this book I thought to myself that I don't eat a whole lot of sandwiches. But then I thought about it some more and I do eat pitas and wraps and tacos and those are all sandwiches of sorts. :) So yummy!

Jane said...

I've heard that this book is great more than once, and every time I get hungrier. But this is the first time I noticed that an entire chapter shares the name of one of my favorite R.E.M. songs. I CAN'T GO WRONG! I'd go right to that, and New Ground and make them all for my little bro, one at a time.

cutekittypunk said...

I don't think it's fair that I can't enter. I live in the Netherlands, but I could pay for the shipping costs. Anyway, just sayin'. I would love to have a book full of vegan sandwiches, especially because that's all anyone eats around here - nothing but bread and something stuffed in between.
