This Vegan Veggie Sandwich is a scrumptious, 10-ingredient, vegan sandwich with multigrain bread, hummus, avocado, a ton of fresh produce, and pumpkin seeds. This carnivore-approved recipe proves that you don't need faux meat products to enjoy a vegan, vegetarian sandwich.
The Vegan Veggie Sandwich
You don't have to use meat substitutes to make a killer, vegan veggie sandwich. In fact, I think faux meat products are often what take carnivores down the wrong path of the vegan diet. I'll take fresh produce over a meat substitute any day of the week.
It's a money-saver too because everyday ingredients can be used in multiple ways, with other recipes. Yeah, we like that!
What do you put on a vegan sandwich?
1. Bread - A nutritious, whole grain bread should be the foundation of any amazing vegan sandwich.
2. Spread - Hummus is my favorite spread for any vegan sandwich. But I have some vegan salad dressing recipes waiting to be published. Coming soon!
3. Produce - Fresh, everyday, vegetables and fruit. Yep, I said fruit. Check out my recipe below to see my favorite fruit for veggie sandwiches.
4. Toppings - my favorite part of any sandwich are the accouterments, such as nuts/seeds, seasonings, and olive oil or flax oil. The toppings should add nutritional value, flavor, and texture to your veggie sandwich.
