I found a recipe for a vegan sandwich online quite some time ago, i cannot quite remember where but it has been a part of my life since. I have omitted it a slight bit but it is still true to its origins.
Here is what you will need to recreate my version of it:
- Bread of your choice, anything goes. I use white bread because my digestive system cannot handle ‘heavy’ food.
- Some tomato sauce or other condiment to ‘glue’ the spinach onto the bread.
- Fresh and newly washed spinach.
- Some paprika, or bell peppers as its called.
- Squash, preferably slightly thick slices.
- Half of an avocado
- Some spices and vegan butter to cook the veggies in. You can use oil too if you prefer that.
Since squash pretty much adapts to whatever flavor you add to it, the sandwich can end up tasting totally different every time you use it. You can also choose different kind of sauces to use between the bread and the spinach, i tend to use a slightly spicy tomato sauce.
All you need to do is put some spinach onto the bread, toss the squash and the bell pepper into the frying pan along with some salt and pepper and any other spice you would wish to add.
Once they are done cooking you arrange them on top of the spinach, i like to put down the squash first, then the bell pepper and then i scoop some avocado on top of it. If you want it to look fancy you can slice up the avocado instead. I’m really just too lazy to make it look pretty.
You can choose to eat it with just the bottom slices of bread or add a second to the top. Usually i let the bread fry a bit in the leftover juices from the veggies but i forgot this time. And since i only use half of the avocado, i like to sprinkle the other half with some salt and eat it with the sandwiches.
So there you go! This doesn’t take long to make, it really just depends on how well cooked you want your veggies to be!
Do you have any sandwich recipes that you love? Feel free to share them with me. They don’t have to be vegan, i just try to eat vegan often to keep my body in balance.
