Vegan MoFo Day 11: Vegan on the go

Do you ever have those days where you're hungry but your fridge isn't very well stocked and you don't feel like going out to buy something? Or maybe you just had a rough day and you want something really quick but also really filling? Instead of settling for a boring bowl of cereal or half a bag of potato chips, I turn to fast food. Sure it's not the healthiest, but it's a nice when hunger and laziness attack at the same time.

The veggie subs at Quizno's are vegan if you get it without the cheese and dressing. The small is 6 points, but a little boring. I love to add some smoked tempeh and chipotle mayo (see below for how to make these). The points will vary depending on what kind of tempeh and vegan mayo you use, so just figure that out and add it to the 6 points of the sub (it'll probably be 1 or 2 points). Yum!

To make the really easy smoked tempeh and chipotle mayo:
For the tempeh, just toss a few slices into a small pan and sprinkle it with some liquid smoke and soy sauce. Pan fry until lightly browned. And for chipotle mayo, just put some vegan mayo (I use Trader Joe's Reduced Fat) in a blender with some of the sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo sauce. The amount really depends on how hot you want it, so start with a little and work up. I usually make a bunch and keep it in an empty mayo jar, so it's ready when I need it.
