How to make a vegan Sandwich?

It is very, very easy; instead of thinking of ham and other cold cuts, think of legumes and vegetables. You have to check for the bread and spreadings to make sure they are vegan, so read your labels. Here is a list of the most common ones:

  • Raw veggies. You can easily make a sandwich with grated raw vegetables like carrots and beets. Use hummus or guacamole as a spread.
  • Roasted vegetables. I love a good baguette sliced in half, with a spread of pesto or romesco sauce and tons of roasted vegetables on one side.
  • Vegetables and beans mix. Or you can make a vegetable and bean mix as this healthy kale sandwich.

Ingredients for this vegan kale sandwich

  • Onion. Chopped onions, I like yellow onions, but any onion will work fine.
  • Red bell pepper. Roasted red bell pepper, you can roast and cut yourself or use jarred ones. To tell you the truth, I love the jarred ones, and I always have them handy and ready.
  • Navy beans. If you cook them at home, cook them until soft but not completely mushy. Like the red bell peppers, use canned or jarred in the same case.
  • Kale. To prepare it, just wash it, pat dry and remove the thicker parts of the stems. Use baby kale, dinosaur kale, or any other kale at home.
  • Bread. Use an excellent tasty and crusty bread. I love baguette, a no-knead homemade bread, or a perfect rustic loaf.

•This kale, white beans, and red pepper mix can be prepare ahead of time and can be stored in the fridge.

•Use spinach, mustard greens or any other greens to prepare this sandwich.

•Use chickpeas or lentils if you don't have navy beans.
