VeganMOFO: Green Monster Bread

I've always felt like I have been some kind of a failure when it comes to making my own bread from scratch. The loaves never rise that much in the oven or they just come out super-dense and crumbly or have some other sad problem. Sigh. But these!  These are kinda awesome. The Green Monster Bread, from Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day, by the ever-lovely lady-duo of Celine and Tami, totally rose and did their thing all proper-like. Woot! I went and made the roll/bagel version, which requires you to boil them quickly in a baking soda/water pot. Love the chewiness and hard exterior that gives it. And Arugula is the best, so I appreciate being able to cram into more of my meals. Hooray for sammiches!

I made mine with white whole wheat and spelt flour, instead of all-purpose flour, hence the more of a Brown Monster Bread hue (2 cups WW and 1 cup spelt).

(Above sammich has a veganaise/hot sauce smear, tomatoes, avocado, and baked tofu for some ultimate yum-lunch.)


  1. Dude, there are no words to tell you how I wish I had at least half of your drawing talents.

  2. I feel you on the bread failure feelings! I want to try this week though, and was looking at recipes from 500 Vegan Recipes. These look great!

  3. I need to try those rolls and I love your sandwich monster!

  4. Look at the monster's antennas :)And arugula sounds like a mighty fine addition.

  5. Four things: 1. I love this post, 2. I have VSSTD, 3. the Green Monster Bread is the first recipe I want to make from it, and 4. I have arugula.

    Now, I need a clone! My back is killing me!
