For the sandwiches, I made Soy-tan Dream Cutlets, also from 1000 Vegan Recipes. These cutlets contain both tofu and vital wheat gluten (the main ingredient in seitan) -- so they're like a firmer, denser tofu patty, or a less chewy seitan. I thought they tasted better than the "Tourkey" Cutlets I made on Thanksgiving. These reminded me of Morningstar Farms veggie burgers (except much cheaper, and vegan!) They were extremely easy to make and I'm sure they would be good in all kinds of sandwiches, not just these po'boys.
Besides the cutlets, the po'boys were filled with cucumber, shredded carrot, cilantro, minced jalapeno, and a creamy dressing made from Veganise, lime juice and sriracha. I love that there are so many different flavors and textures contained in a single sandwich! I'll definitely be making them again.
