Yum Yum Alexandria Sandwich

E and N come from a lineage of vegetarians. I’m their mom, and have been a vegetarian since 1974, and a vegan for many of those years. My sisters are also long term vegetarians. Between the five of us we have almost 160 years of vegetarian living!

When I eat in vegan restaurants and find something I love, I go home and try to recreate it. That is how Yum Yum Alexandria Sandwiches were born. While visiting my sister in DC, we rode bikes on a cold and rainy day to Alexandria, Virginia and ate some very delicious sandwiches, which I recreated and we have been eating and enjoying for many years now.


  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Some type of ridiculously processed plant protein such as Tofurkey roast beef slices, vegan chicken or vegan turkey slices
  • Vegan mayonnaise
  • Better Than Bouillon Vegetable Broth
  • Vegan Cheese
  • Vegan Bacon (optional)
  • Deli Rolls or Dutch Crunch Rolls


  1. Slice onions and sauté slowly in pan with a little olive oil until caramelized.
  2. Add sliced mushrooms, any herbs you want, along with undiluted  “Better than Bullion” veggie broth, and cook till all the liquid is gone.
  3. Slice your ridiculously processed plant protein and then pan fry.
  4. Mix  vegan mayonnaise with some of the Better than Bullion” veggie broth, and spread on both sides of the  bread
  5. Add the pretend meat, onion-mushroom mixture,  vegan cheese, and melt in oven.
  6. Remove from oven, add avocado, and optional vegan bacon, close and eat. Yum Yum.
