Zapiekanka with musrooms and vegan cheese

zapiekanka with mushrooms and vegan cheese, vegan recipes

Zapiekanka - polish street food in a vegan version. Open sandwich with mushrooms and vegan cheese baked in the oven - simple, but very tasty!

When I was a teenager, whenever I went out with friends I had pizza or "zapiekanka" - polish street food. They sell them everywhere, or at least, used to. Zapiekanka is a simple open sandwich with mushrooms, cheese, and ketchup, but of course, since I became vegan I was not able to just go and buy it. Not to worry though - there is nothing in this world that could not be veganized - including zapiekanka! So yummy! To be honest, way better than I remembered. Or maybe it is just the taste of cruelty-free food that makes every meal so much better?
