Chatelaine and Lauren Toyota have teamed up to put a vegan spin on the comfort foods you know and love. On this episode: a smoky, saucy and meatless “pulled pork” sammie.

RECIPE: BBQ Pulled Porkless Sandwiches

TASTES & TEXTURES: meaty, saucy, crunchy, sweet and sour
MAKES 4 sandwiches
PREP TIME 30 minutes
COOK TIME 30 minutes
1 onion, thinly sliced (about 2 cups sliced)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
10 oz cremini mushrooms roughly diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup marinated artichokes, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground mustard powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground pepper
¼ cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons soy sauce or gluten-free tamari
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
4 cups slaw
1/3 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
4 multigrain burger buns
2 dill pickles, thinly sliced
Heat a large pan over medium high heat with vegetable oil. Once hot add the sliced onions and sauté for 5 minutes until softened and slightly browned.
Add mushrooms and minced garlic and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes until most of the water from the mushrooms has evaporated.
Add the roughly chopped artichokes and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add smoked paprika, ground mustard, sea salt, ground pepper, tomato paste, soy sauce, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar and stir to combine well.
Spread out the mixture into an even layer in the pan and cook for 15 more minutes only stirring once or twice. You’re trying to caramelize the mixture a little bit so don’t stir it too much. It will reduce and get much darker in colour. Serve immediately on lightly toasted buns. Top with slaw and pickle slices.

Things like this make me excited to be vegan

tlhuettl says:

I love this recipe, but the artichoke hearts are expensive. Is there a cheaper substitute for them that would work good in this recipe? Thanks!

Cosa Nostrv says:

Are you related to the Toyota car company lol

kelsey pb says:

Made these last night and they were BOMB DOT COM👌🏼 had to make a few substitutions because ofcourse I HAD to make it now and didnt have time to go to grocery store😜 (used normal artichokes in a can, yellow mustard in place of dry mustard, regular paprika and just added some liquid smoke)
This is officially a household regular!

jini t says:

As a life long vegetarian I have never had pulled pork but wanted to try this recipe as I need to add mushrooms in my diet. I halved this recipe in case it didn’t go well. This was delicious and next time I will make the full recipe. Also subbed Dijon mustard for dry mustard cuz that is what I had available.

You, Lauren Toyota, are a magician.

Aislinn says:

THIS WAS BOMB AF!!!! 😍🤤 go and make it rn!

Jane Nicholson says:

Half a teaspoon of chili powder helps.

Meaghan Fleming says:

Woooww!!! This looks amazing!! I can’t wait to bring this to summer bbq’s!

Mindy Bensen says:

I feel like you could use that ‘meaty’ base different ways, mix it around and get a vegan sloppy joe or something

Sammmslife says:

I made this for dinner….so good. I said out loud, “oh my god”. Instead of a bun I just used butter lettuce…yummm

Sarah Ham says:

Holy craaaaaaaap I need to make this!

soph j93 says:

How come you don't saute the garlic with the onion at the start?

Teresa LeVasseur says:

I think I'd like this better than jackfruit pulled pork. I like the taste of artichokes, not so much the taste of jackfruit, and I do love mushrooms!

Tammy Tahir says:

Yumm-y!!! I love artichokes anyway!!!

Rach C says:

Lolo that looks good 😋👍😌

Mary's Test Kitchen says:

mmmmmm yess!!! feedddmeeeeee!!!

Stephanie Coulter says:

Oh my goodness, how delicious does that look!!!!

Emily Cruz says:

Talking with a mouth full of food at the beginning of the video 🤢

Meg O says:

Definitely adding to next week's meal plan! FYI, if you haven't tried Lauren's crab cakes yet…. you simply must! Helped my meat eating family be more open to vegan cooking and now they are 95% plant based!
