Vegan Cheesesteaks on Hoagies

Philly cheese steaks are one of those things that to me just can’t be beat.

They are delicious and full of flavor- and when done right (wit wiz, natch), they they are truly epic.

When I am trying to add a few more nutritional meals into my week or following our church’s fasting schedule (I am Orthodox Christian, and we fast from meat and animal products regularly around the calendar, especially during Lent), I look for delicious, comforting and “meaty” meal ideas that are full of flavor.

I don’t really love soy-based meat and cheese substitutes, so I try to find real foods that taste great and are easy to prepare. These Vegan Philly Cheese Steak Hoagies are fill of fiber, protein and low fat – perfect for healthy vegan meals!

These delicious vegan sandwiches taste like meaty philly cheesesteaks - without the fake stuff. Just real veggies!

So much of this recipe counts on building flavor without adding calories. To do this, you really need to let the vegetables cook- don’t rush them!

Cooking vegetables well allows a rich, meaty flavor to develop.

This recipe is a bit higher-calorie than many of my favorite vegan meals, but that comes from the fluffy, delicious hoagie bun.

If you’re going for a low-carb, low calorie diet, I’d suggest popping the filling in a pita pocket, serving over a salad, or eating it as-is from the skillet!

What to Enjoy with your Philly Cheese Steak

A vegan Philly cheesesteak can be a delightful and savory main course that’s full of flavor, and there are plenty of delicious side dishes and accompaniments that can enhance your dining experience. Here’s what you might consider enjoying with your vegan Philly cheesesteak:

Crispy Sweet Potato Fries or Wedges:

  • Sweet potatoes offer a nutritious and flavorful twist to traditional fries. Baking them in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil and your choice of herbs can create a crispy, sweet, and savory side that complements the savory notes of the cheesesteak.

Pickled Vegetables or Coleslaw:

  • A tangy, crunchy pickled vegetable medley or a vinegar-based coleslaw can add a refreshing contrast to the rich flavors of the cheesesteak, balancing the overall meal.

Side Salad:

  • A light side salad with fresh greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and a light vinaigrette can add a fresh and crunchy element to your meal.

Steamed or Grilled Vegetables:

  • Seasonal vegetables, either steamed or grilled, can provide a healthy and colorful side option. Think asparagus, broccoli, or bell peppers seasoned with herbs and a touch of olive oil.

Vegan Cheese Sauce or Dip:

  • A side of vegan cheese sauce for dipping can amplify the cheesy experience of your Philly cheesesteak.

Pickle Spears:

  • Just like with a traditional Philly cheesesteak, a few crisp pickle spears on the side can add a zesty and crunchy element.

Chilled Lemonade or Iced Tea:

  • A refreshing beverage like freshly squeezed lemonade or iced tea can cleanse the palate and enhance the flavors of your vegan cheesesteak.

Dessert – Vegan Ice Cream or Sorbet:

  • For dessert, a scoop of vegan ice cream or sorbet can provide a sweet end to your meal.

Baked Chips or Pretzels:

  • If you’re looking for something to crunch on, baked chips or pretzels can be a lighter alternative to fried chips.

Homemade Guacamole or Salsa:

  • A side of guacamole or salsa can add a refreshing and zesty element, especially if your cheesesteak has some spicy components.

  1. That sounds good…!!
    You are a lifesaver. Now i can manage time for office and cooking and thanks again for so many healthy and delicious recipes…..

  2. This look delicious! Will try! Being from Phila., though, hoagies and cheese steaks (and regular steak sandwiches) are two different things. Anything warm is not a hoagie. Hoagies are cold sandwiches on a hoagie roll.

  3. Thanks a lot for your unique Vegan Philly Cheese recipe. I prefer healthy diet and of course I will try to cook it next week.
