These Vegan Sandwich Recipes are packed and healthy. They are easy to make, and the perfect school or work lunch for kids and adults alike. | The Green Loot #vegan #veganrecipes

My favorites are: Vegan BLT Sandwich with Aquafaba Mayo, Green Sandwiches with Maple & Soy Crispy Tofu and Tomato, Basil & Artichoke Picnic Sandwich.

I love them, because even though, they are cold, but they can be just as satisfying as when you eat a big bowl of warm meal. And let’s admit. You don’t always have an access to a microwave to heat up your food.

But even if you do, cooking your lunch at home in advance is sometimes not an option. Fortunately, there a lot of brilliant vegan sandwich recipes out there, that can solve this problem for you.

Here you will find the best of the best recipes, to quickly and effectively satisfy your hunger at work/in school/at home!
