sriracha buffalo sandwich



Time: 30 minutes
Dishes: medium pot, medium bowl, small bowl, baking sheet

Hello, hello Dear Readers!

I have had a hankering for Buffalo-style sandwiches ever since living in Miami and having them at a nightclub waaayyyy back in my younger days. It was served on a bun with slaw and mayo. I made this sandwich with those flavors in mind, but, of course, upped it with Sriracha. 

If you like some other hot sauce, this recipe should be able to support it, no problem.

You might be wondering why air-fry/pan fry the reconstituted Soy Curls and then broil them? Valid question! When the curls first reconstitute they are packed with moisture. You could squeeze them out first and skip the air-frying, but you would also be skipping a lot of bonus flavor and texture. I advise against it. 

Use the Savory Soy Curls recipe HERE and then make your Sriracha Buffalo sandwiches. 

The slaw does well with either mayo or yogurt add it adds the welcome heat relief. We loved these quick sammies and it satisfied my craving for those long-ago flavors.

Side Note: Work is walloping me, since I am also taking a certification course and volunteering for a high school girls hackathon (Contact me if you know a high school girl who would like to participate. It is Pacific time, but it is virtual. I can send you an e-Flyer). Bear with me while I finish the Winter recipe zine. I hope to have it done in the next few weeks.

sriracha artichoke rolls

Seafood rolls are very popular on the Northeastern coast of the US and I want folks to have some great alternatives for the sandwich that lots of people see as quintessentially coastal.

And if we throw in some sriracha, then it can only be better!

This sandwich is featured on my Prep Ahead Week 3 menu: HERE.

This sandwich features roasted artichokes, chickpeas and vegetables. The dressing can be either vegan mayo or vegan yogurt. I opted for the yogurt since it is just as creamy as mayo and the tang is welcome.

The sandwich is laced with cilantro and shredded carrots and perfect served in whole wheat hot dog rolls.

As the easy green accompaniment, I served it with a simple vinaigrette on a green salad. Easy and satisfying.

Sriracha Artichoke Rolls

1 teaspoon olive oil or oil spray
1 (14-ounce) can artichokes, squeezed of excess water and chopped

3 celery ribs, sliced thin
2 medium carrots, shredded
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup unsweetened plain nondairy yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
1 tablespoon sriracha

4 to 6 hot dog buns

1. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the artichokes and chickpeas. Cook until golden, without stirring much. Add the garlic and cook until golden. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool while you chop the vegetables.
2. Add the celery, carrots, cilantro, yogurt, lime juice and sriracha to a large bowl. Add the roasted beans and artichoke. Mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning.
3. Toast the buns. Serve the salad in the buns. Serve with a green salad.
