Vegan Po’ Boy – in homemade Pita ” inspired by hot for food”

Again an inspiration from the amazing Lauren Toyota. She just publsihed her book vegan comfort classics

and we are so excited to get one soon. Lauren has inspired and acompanied me during my vegan journey and she always brings out amazing recipes to recreate.

So we used the Oyster Mushroom Po’ Boy recipe for the marinated mushrooms and added a Pita as well as a Pea Sauce recipe on our own. Totally in love with this combination.

Photowise we have tried something different this time. We are so shy in front of the camera but for the sake of social media, Moritz made an exception. (Happy that I can be the person behind the camera though 😉 ).

This recipe will always be one of the memories capturing our last days in France. I have to be honest: I already miss it so badly. I was never homesick for the entire study, but i feel that it will change for france. It always felt like a piece of home, although i did not really have had the chance to settle.

Anyways: Enjoy this amazing vegan recipe. It is a real comfort food y’all. Take yourself some time to cook, because it is actually quite some work if you do everything from skretch.
