Recipe: A kinda Vegan Italian Sausage Cheesesteak Sandwich

January 22, 2011

I love when people send me pictures of their food (it happens way more than you think) because that means they’re excited to EAT. My friend Sana recently sent me a picture of a cheesesteak concoction of her own:

When I asked her to send me the recipe, she graciously agreed. Below is her version of the meal:

“Kinda Vegan Italian Sausage Cheesesteak Sub”
By: Sana Jafri

Sana’s disclaimer: Unless you substitute this with soy cheese, it’s not totally vegan.
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 5 min


1 Sweet Vegan Italian Sausage with Tomato and Basi (from Tofurky)
1 White Vegan Bun (Trader Joe’s brand, I think)
2 Sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms
2 Slices of Red and Yellow Bell Peppers
1/4 Sliced White Onion
A pinch of Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 slice of Trader Joe’s Pepper Jack Cheese


1. Sautée onions in olive oil until soft
2. Add sliced veggies (mushrooms and bell peppers) and sautée for a few more minutes
3. Add chopped vegan italian sausage to veggies
4. Add cheese, sautee until melted, gooey yummyness
5. Lightly toast bun
6. Add mixture (veggies+vegan sausage) on bun
7. Send pics to your friends to make them jealous
8. EAT!

Thanks for those last two points. Greatly appreciated.
