We’re loving vegan YouTube star Lauren Toyota’s new collection of comfort food recipes sure to rejuvenate your plant-based cooking repertoire. If you’re craving the vegan version of just about anything, Toyota has a recipe for you. Whip up this fried oyster mushroom po’boy and crunch into the most satisfying vegetarian sandwich we’ve ever heard of. 

This is my tribute to Guy Fieri, the host of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives! I equally loathe and am enamored with his show on the Food Network, as well as with Guy himself. On one hand I want nothing to do with him and what his food stands for, yet on the other hand I want to BE him. I just would never be caught dead in a flame shirt! So I wanted to make a version of a po’ boy sandwich because there’s always one of these on Triple D. Shrimp, lobster, crab, oysters, you name it, Guy finds it, and they’re all over America, not just in New Orleans (where the sandwich originated). So sink your big mouth into this sammich and tell me being vegan ain’t the greatest! Welcome to flavor town.

Hot Tip: Fresh herbs create a more authentic taste and are preferred, but in a pinch you can use dried. I don’t know you, but maybe you like your dip thick and your salad dressing thinned out. Whatever your pleasure just add a tablespoon or two of water or nondairy milk to these 3 recipes once they’re made to achieve your desired consistency!
