chips ahoy!

Trying to come up with new offerings for the menu at the starfish and waffles café is always a bit of challenge ... and this rings especially true for vegetarian dishes. I mean, besides your standard meatless cuisine such as tofu, salad or hot dogs, what else is there? Oh, you poor, poor veggies ... so little choice, so little selection.

Need proof of the vegetarian street cred of our scrumptious, new Vegan Sour Cream 'n' Bacon Potato Chip Sandwich? Look no further than the photo above, where the curious, carnivorous dingo (who once tried to eat my baby nephew) won't even touch it.

Well, don't fret, lettucehead, you don't have to cry over your soy milk any longer. Because beginning today, the dingobear kitchen (a.k.a. the gluttony zone) is now cooking for the iron-deficient you ... and we'd like to introduce what is quite possibly the greatest veggie development since the creation of mock chicken itself ... the Vegan Sour Cream 'n Bacon Potato Chip Sandwich!

Yes, that's right: it's yet another original recipe from the dingobear kitchen. Dare we say that the Vegan Sour Cream 'n' Bacon Potato Chip Sandwich is so good, you won't even need a gag suppressant to keep it down. Herbivores of the world, rejoice!


Vegan Sour Cream 'n' Bacon Potato Chip Sandwich
1 whole-wheat sandwich roll
1 handful of ruffled sour cream 'n' bacon flavoured potato chips
slices of green and red bell pepper to garnish

Slice the whole-wheat sandwich roll in half. Put the chips between the two slices. See? No need to make things any harder than they have to be. Mmmmm ...

The delightfully crunchy and salty potato chips work incredibly well with the soft and fluffy sandwich roll. A venerable contrast of tastes and textures, it's like there's a (vegetarian) party in your mouth and everyone's invited!

Also, for those of you who worry about the vegan credibility of using bacon chips in our exciting new sandwich, let me point out that the bacon seasoning on the chips contain positively no natural flavouring and, in fact, I don't think it's even organic. A big vegetarian "yay!"

Believe it or not, sometimes we actually develop serious original recipes from the dingobear kitchen ... check out the links on the left side of this webpage for details.


  1. sounds crunchy and satisfying ....mmmmmmmmm schmoffie!

  2. Looks yummy!

    (BTW-Soy milk is not just for those silly vegheads anymore. Some of us carni's are not friends with Mr. Lactose!) :)

  3. I'm not sure I'll try this one... but you never know. :) I think I would miss the meat...

  4. m ... the sandwich was delicious!

    Rebecca ... hmmm, lactose-intolerance must be tough. I mean, I bet you have to be really careful when you're scooping your ice cream! :-)

    Katie ... yeah, I think a big, juicy steak might go nicely with all of the potato chips in between that whole wheat bun! :-) Wow, I can't believe I just wrote that.

  5. I love chip sandwiches! There were times during college that this was a wholesome meal for me.

  6. GASP!

    Has the editor been replaced, or is he simply on vacation and that is his stand in.

    And why am I the first to notice / comment on it???

  7. Michelle, we love chip sandwiches as well ... and now with our new recipe, they're not only for college kids anymore!

    TSM, no, no, the editor wants to reiterate that he is still firmly in charge around here ... the use of the dingo was merely a creative decision.

  8. This definitely beats grilled cheese sandwich, dill pickles,and chips heap up on the same plate together with a bowl of canned tomato soup every single Sunday during my college years. Come to think about it, dingo satay should taste just fine. eeeeek! Run dingo, run!

  9. The sandwich sounds delicious! I must share my recipe for potato chip salad. Always a hit a family gatherings – somehow just adding the word salad to describe a bowl full of mixed chips makes it sound all the more virtuous. I hope you are well.


  10. dingolar ... are you suggesting you want to eat that dingo? And yes, a healthy, vegetarian chip sandwich is definitely better than a grilled cheese sandwich.

    Zoe ... potato chip salad? Zoe, I'm intrigued and impressed by your culinary stylings.
