French Dip Sandwiches


  • 2 portobello caps, sliced

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 4 slices of swiss or provolone (or use home-made mozzarella)

  • 1 french baguette (or other bread)

Vegan Au Jus:


  1. In a large pan, pour 2 tbsp of vegetable oil and set heat to medium-low. Saute the garlic, portobello mushrooms, and onion slices until soft – about 10-15 minutes.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the au jus ingredients. After the mushroom and onion have been sauteed, add the vegan au jus to the pan. Let the mixture simmer until bubbling, then remove from heat.

  3. Remove the onion and mushroom as needed with tongs, and place between the bread. Place cheese on top, then broil the sandwich (with the cheese exposed on top) to melt. This can be as fast as 1 minute, so be careful not to burn the cheese!

  4. Remove the sandwiches, pour the remainder of the vegan au jus into a bowl, and dip like the French to your heart’s content.
