America’s Top 10 New Sandwiches Veganized – Pibil Torta Sandwich


What a great way to end this week! I am not saying that only because it is my birthday today, but because it is Spring Break for lots of my friends and there was a fun post hosted by a great blogger friend, Marly at Namely Marly.

Before I share this post I wanted to let you know that I will be posting my veganized birthday cake soon that was suggested by @Veganlandshark through Twitter. I was debating whether to make my own cake or not, and @Veganlandshark encouraged me to make a Hummingbird Cake. I had never heard about this type of cake but when I looked up the ingredients I decided I totally needed to make this! Crushed pineapple and bananas in a cake frosted with a cream cheese frosting? Yes yes! So stay tuned for the recipe!

On another note, I have a sandwich that is featured at Namely Marly’s site. After she read an article on Huffington Post claiming America’s Top 10 New Sandwiches, Marly contacted several vegan bloggers and asked if we would like to take the challenge veganizing these so-called delicious sandwiches.


What did I choose to veganize? Well, when I saw the Latin-inspired sandwich I knew I had to take a chance to find a substitute for suckling pig. Ugh! I had so much fun making and bringing this creation to completion. Ryan enjoyed being my taste tester and complimented me on the wonderful flavors this sandwich evoked.

Thanks Marly for letting me be a part fo this challenge. Check out the Pibil Torta Sandwich…..Veganized.
