Vegan Sandwich Recipes
Here’s another “fool-your-non-vegan-friends” recipe. One look at this Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich and they’ll beg you for one. You’ll oblige, knowing full well they’ll be expecting chicken. They’ll be so enamored with the buffalo and ranch sauces that they may never guess the vegan truth.
Just about anything can be made into a sandwich salad. Eggs, chicken, shrimp, salmon and wholesome plant-based ingredients. You gotta try chickpeas for protein and avocado, instead of mayo, for the creamy goodness. This sandwich makes for a scrumptious lunch or a light dinner.
Grilled cheese is the ultimate comfort food, but don’t despair, vegans! Vegan cream cheese and vegan cheddar slices are actually a thing. Add some fresh and pickled jalapeños and you’ve got the tastiest and most elevated grilled cheese ever.
By now, everyone’s heard about avocado toast. But what if you wanted to add protein and another level of creaminess? How about Hummus and Avocado Toast? Toast some multigrain bread, slather on hummus and avocado and add a few tomato slices. Lunch is ready!
Quick lunch idea — turn on the oven, get some quality bread and add a serious layer of pesto. Drop on a few slices of tomato and bake. Then, let the customizing begin — sun-dried tomatoes, vegan cheese, spinach or arugula are all winning options.
If you haven’t made jackfruit pork, you need to change your ways. Drain them, trim and then sauté with aromatics. Then add spices, a few other ingredients and stick in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, assemble your gyros! It’s that simple!
When you add pesto to chickpea and avocado salad, you rocket an already delicious dish into the stratosphere of yum. Use on sandwiches, as a dip for crackers, crostini or veggies or even on top of a lettuce bed.
When you picture a tofu sandwich, you might imagine something bland. Not this sandwich! The thinly sliced tofu is marinated in soy and maple syrup, giving it that sweet and savory kick. Then, they’re pan-fried in coconut oil to get them nice and crunchy.
How does this sound — a sandwich with silky smooth avocado and sliced cucumbers for a nice, fresh crunch? Toast the bread, assemble and take a bite. You’ll know you’ve got something really special for a light lunch or a snack.
10. ‘Meatball’ Sub
Ever had one of those days when you’re starving at lunch? Next time, make a vegan meatball sub! Mushroom and lentil meatballs dripping in zesty marinara sauce. Add some veggies and serve on a crusty roll. Talk about heaven!
Ah, what’s more romantic than a picnic in the park? Surprise someone special and pack a few Tomato, Basil and Artichoke Picnic Sandwiches in a basket and set out on a romantic adventure. Each bite will add to the magic of the day.
I’m a firm believer that dill makes just about anything better. That’s especially true in this Dill Chickpea Sandwich. Dill adds just enough herby zing to wake up those chickpeas and call them to attention.
Here’s a hoagie that you can actually feel good about devouring. It’s jam-packed with spiced-up roasted veggies on a soft hoagie roll. Add a few slices of vegan cheese if you want to be a little naughty.
Freak out your friends by presenting them with a platter of egg salad sandwiches. They’ll be like, aren’t you a vegan and you’ll be like, yep. They’ll never guess they’re packed with tofu, herbs and veggies instead of eggs.
Summer means having something fresh for lunch. Try these Smashed Chickpea Green Goddess Sandwiches. Herby and lemony with a cucumber and fresh spinach crunch. Add a little avocado for creaminess and you’re in sandwich heaven.
I’ve had vegan BLTs before but this one has a unique touch — aquafaba mayo. When you try the crisp tofu bacon with the juicy tomato and that zingy mayo, you’ll simply stand up and applaud. We are in the presence of sandwich ingenuity.
Here’s to giving the reuben, that old-school deli classic, a modern makeover. There’s still sauerkraut but this reuben is proud to have cashew cheese, tahini, tomatoes, spinach and basil stacked on pumpernickel! It’s the reuben of the future!
If it has pesto in it, you’ve automatically got my attention. A shredded tofu pesto sandwich? Sounds like I need to rush over to your place for lunch. Pesto for herby goodness, tomatoes for acid and shredded tofu for substance. I’m on my way.
A vegan Italian Pressed Sandwich? Totally! Who needs cold cuts when you’ve got eggplant, olive tapenade, veggies, red wine vinegar and olive oil? Put it all on a ciabatta or a rustic sourdough loaf, press it to merge the flavors and then dig in.
