BBQ Eggplant Sandwiches And ABC Vegan Cookies
My panini press has been getting a lot of lovin’ lately, like this barbecue grilled eggplant sandwich with grilled onions and spinach on whole wheat vegan bread. I guess that means my cast iron grill pan is getting a lot of love as well! I served our barbecue eggplant sandwiches with steamed acorn squash, one of my lifelong favorite vegetables. Acorn squash is awesome with a little vegan butter and brown sugar or vegan butter and garlic, but it’s delicious (and lower calorie) plain too.
A couple weeks ago, I purchased a few Alternative Baking Company vegan cookies from a coffee shop right next to my eye doctor. I took them with us on our trip to my mom’s for us all to sample. I even took pictures! But somehow, I completely forgot about them and never wrote my little review. This isn’t the first time I’ve had cookies from ABC, and whenever I see the displays around, I’m suckered into buying one just because I think it’s so great to see vegan cookies available at non-vegan places. Ironically, the coffee shop I purchased these at doesn’t even have non-dairy milk options for their coffee, so I’m not sure why they chose to sell them, but the display has been there as long as I can remember!
This time I purchased Ginger Snappin’ Raisin, Snickerdoodle, Double Chocolate Chip, and Coconut Macaroon. The cookies are all plenty big enough to share or save half for later. We loved the Ginger Snappin’ Raisin; it reminded me of my pumpkin ginger cookies. The Double Chocolate Chip was probably my personal favorite because it’s like a big cookie-shaped brownie! The Coconut Macaroon was also very tasty, but the Snickerdoodle was a bit dry. I very much prefer Vegan Cookie’s Invade Your Cookie Jar‘s Snickerdoodles, but maybe I just got a stale one. I should mention my little man loved his little piece of them all, and didn’t really seem to notice the Snickerdoodle being stale. Oh, and we didn’t eat them all in one day…
What’s your favorite vegan sandwich? Have you ever tried Alternative Baking Company’s cookies?
