While a perfect recipe for a sandwich includes greens, proteins, spices, and sauces to bind all the ingredients together. It can be a little tricky for vegans to ace the art of making sandwiches if they are new to the world of plant-based eating. Here are a few recipes that will make your mornings and life easier.

Avocado Sandwich

If you are a fan of avocado, you have a versatile ingredient to prepare sandwiches. Jam-packed with flavours, this recipe will not disappoint you and guarantee a hearty meal. Add lemon edamame spread, made with green onion and cilantro, for a kick and loads of protein. This recipe can stay in your fridge for at least 4-5 days, preventing you from the hassle of making it again if you want it for another meal. Add fresh cucumber slices and green to the sandwich on top of avocado slices and pickled onions, and enjoy this delicious mix.

Tomato Sandwich

Can you tell me a more versatile vegetable than tomatoes? They go with Indian, Mexican, Continental, Italian, and other cuisines. With a hint of sour flavours, tomatoes can make your sandwiches taste fresh and juicy. Make a creamy base using either kidney beans or chickpeas. Either add garlic on top of the base or mix it with its recipe. Add sliced tomatoes and top the sandwich with fresh coriander leaves and lettuce. A drizzle of olive oil will enhance its taste by leaps and bounds.

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

For this sandwich, all you need is to create a spicy and tangy base using boiled and dried chickpeas, garlic cloves, chopped onions and tomatoes, fresh lemon juice, black pepper powder, mustard sauce or Dijon mustard, tahini, and salt to taste. Spread it on a slice of bread and top it with the slices of your favourite vegetables like tomatoes, onions, cucumber, and olives. Add freshly chopped basil leaves and coriander leaves. Sprinkle black pepper and salt to taste along with a good drizzle of olive oil and enjoy. 

Vegan Egg Salad

Who said vegans can't enjoy the flavours of eggs? Tofu is a plant-based ingredient that is not only a good source of protein but can also be converted into a vegan egg mixture. Roughly break it with your hands, and cook with olive oil, garlic, turmeric, and salt to taste. Spread any vegan mayonnaise of your choice, add a layer of vegan scrambled eggs, and top it with freshly chopped coriander leaves, mustard sauce, and a few drops of lemon juice.

Club Sandwich

Club sandwiches have to have meat but not for vegans. You can create a spicy marinade for tempeh or tofu and cook the pieces on a non-stick pan until each side is golden brown. Add white bean or chickpea spread, tofu slices, fresh slices of cucumber and tomato, fresh green, and a drizzle of olive oil. Each bite of this will be a burst of flavour in your mouth.
