Sandwich Love Vegan Style

As is evidenced by my many posts on them, I love sandwiches. A lot. Pretty much everything tastes better when in sandwich format. Don't believe me... try it. Take any food and stick it on a roll and I guarantee it will satisfy you better and taste great. It's also easier to eat. Hand-held is the way to go.

Here is a pictorial run down of some of great vegan sandwiches. They use uncommon sandwich ingredients, but taste way better than the typical meat and cheese kind.


Lightlife bologna style on a bagel. Two slices of the lightlife with pickle and roasted garlic hummus between.
Curry lentils and barley on a kaiser roll. Roll is buttered with hummus. Mix of lentils, barley, cauliflower, garlic and mustard greens fill out the sandwich.Recipe for curry lentils
Mexican rice on whole wheat bread. It's not much to look at. Kinda beige, but don't let that fool you. The flavors are plenty colorful. Bread is buttered with hummus before adding the rice mix. Recipe for rice mix.
