Sandwiches in Simplicity

Veggie Hummus sandwich pictured here with the best hummus ever (a local brand) and a delicious Earth Fare vegan cookie

A good sandwich can heavenly. The disparate flavors and textures unite together to create a unique flavor experience. There is something simple, satisfying, and down-right magical about a well-made sandwich. It never fails to be an exciting meal for me; maybe because I don’t have it that often.

My favorite sandwiches have grown even simpler since I’ve gone vegan. The ingredients have dropped to a few fresh, healthy items that work together to create a delicious mix of flavors and textures. Many people like a complicated sandwich, piled high with faux meats and condiments. Now, there is nothing wrong with that, but I prefer a more uncomplicated sandwich.

Here are three of my favorite sandwich combinations. Be warned, they are basically the same sandwich with slight alterations. The good thing is, if you are a piler-on of condiments and faux meats, my sandwiches might just be a good starter for you. If you, like me, like an unassuming sandwich - light on the belly and full of flavor - then these babies are for you.

Adapted “Vegan Powerhouse”

In Columbia, MD, there is this adorable cafĂ© inside David’s Natural Market. Their Vegan Powerhouse sandwich is my absolute favorite. I can’t seem to match the exact awesomeness of this sandwich, but I try. I don’t make it a lot because I don’t buy faux cheese a lot, but sometimes I get that craving and I gotta have it!

2 slices of sprouted grain bread (or whatever bread you love)

1 slice of vegan cheese

Vegan mayo to taste

Tomato

Alfalfa sprouts, lots of it (this is the best part of the sandwich)

Lettuce

Italian seasoning to taste (optional)


Avocado Alfalfa Sandwich

Starting to see a pattern? Do I have an alfalfa sprout obsession or what?

2 slices of sprouted grain bread (or whatever bread you love)

½ an avocado, sliced

Vegan mayo to taste

Tomato

Alfalfa sprouts, lots of it (this is the best part of the sandwich)

Lettuce

Hummus Veggie Sandwich (pictured above) or Hummus Avocado Sandwich

I make this sandwich two different ways. Sometimes, I make it simply a hummus sandwich, but sometimes, I add an avocado. Yum!
