What if the best “meatball” sandwich you ever tried turned out not to have any meat in it? That’s the goal of Tanya Spasic of Animal Liberation Kitchen – to make vegetarian and vegan meals so delicious that even the most determined of carnivores leaves with a big smile and full belly.
Tanya has been perfecting her veggie meatball recipe, creating the perfect “bounce”, rich texture and big flavour, and the result is a fantastically tasty sandwich that’s secretly really good for you — and kids love it too!
Her sandwich features her signature vegetarian “cheatballs” with roasted peppers, caramelized onions, chipotle mayo and arugula on a toasted ciabatta bun, served alongside a salad of baby arugula, mixed greens, walnuts, beets and goat cheese.
Tanya Spasic is the founder of Animal Liberation Kitchen, whose goal is to make tasty, healthy vegetarian and vegan meals as a delicious alternative to meat-centric diets.
Every Friday we invite guest chefs – amateur or professional – to come share their favourite dishes at The Depanneur.
