    Default Favourite vegan sandwich filling / bread spread?

    Anyone got any favourites? Think I may have started this thread back on the old forum .. can't remember now. I'm currently doing one of my faves:

    Marmite
    Onion
    Sweetcorn
    Tomato

    Anyone else got a good one?

    At the risk of sounding very daft, how do you make a toasted sandwich? It is just something that I have never made, so am not very familiar with. Your ingredients sound quite tasty, and maybe this is a whole new thing that I need to try.

    You can buy a sandwich toaster, just "butter" the outsides of the bread so it doesn't stick, fill it with your favourite delights, then toast it for about 5 minutes or so. Think they're about £20 over here

    Great for snacks with a cuppa

    Not sure if it would work in a toasted sandwich maker but roughly mashed avocado on toast with a splash of lemon and/or Tabasco is delicious. Tomato and sprouted seeds are a good addition although the sprouts would presumably go limp if toasted

    I like making this one (but due to laziness I don't do it often):

    Tomato, Onion, Cucumber, Romaine Lettuce/or mixed Greens, babaganoush (eggplant dip)/also works well w hummus, salt, and pepper, and a sprinkle of olive oil doesn't hurt... all wrapped in pita bread.

    More often:
    Almond Butter
    Almond Butter w. raspberry jam (or another berry jam)
    Natural Peanut Butter w fruit jam (preferably raspberry)

    I will make plain hummus or eggplant dip sandwiches... but personally I like dipping into the dips more than eating them as a filling alone.. it always feels like I'm eating more than I should...

    Being the health-fanatic that I am I do not eat any sandwiches except for tomato and avocado OR salad sandwichs as other types of sandwiches are disrecommended for digestive and complimentary issues according to several nurition books I have read.

    Occasianlly I am naughty and have pita breads with hummus and salad or roast courgette cherry tomatoes and mushrooms; or same with yeast spread and tahini; or salad and bean salad with yeast spread; or falafel mayo and grated courgette broccoli and carrot (all raw).

    Right now my favorite is grilled vidalia onions, red peppers, green peppers, and mushrooms wrapped in a tortilla w/ a little vinagrette dressing. So I guess it's not really a sandwich but a wrap...

    OK, recently I’ve been feeling: toasted wholegrain bread, soy butter, avocado, salsa, jalapeño peppers, cashew nuts, green olives and spring onion.

    Usually white or wholemeal vegan buns. Whatever the grocery store has left at the end of the day, when I finish work. It has to be vegan though!

    I like hummus, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles.

    Here's another question: What kind of bread do you use for your sandwich? I usually buy organic whole wheat or multi-grain.

    I mainly use a wholemeal grain bread just from the supermarket - I looove Essene bread - (which I think is the same as Ezekiel bread) but it is more expensive and inconvenient (it isn't pre-sliced) - I am a student!!!

    on organic whole grain bread, spread hummus on one side, tofutti cream cheese on the other, sliced olives and red onion in the center.

    roasted: eggplant, red pepper, jalapeno, grated carrots and broccolli stalks stuffed in a pita with tahini.

    Default So many choices!

    I like a "grilled" peanut butter banana sandwich on whole grain bread. I like Yves deli slices with romaine, tomato, Veganaise and dijon mustard on toasted grain bread. Pita pockets - garlicky hummous, lettuce, tomato, english cucumber and radish inside a toasty pita. Baked tofu slathered in a cheezy nutritional yeast sauce on a toasted sesame bagel, with crisp lettuce and tomato.

    I usually only eat sandwhiches at resturaunts. At home i stick to almond butter/peanut butter with fruit, maple syrup or raspberry jam. sometimes i eat some lightlife fake ham with mustard.

    i love refried black beans though in a tortilla, pb&j in a tortilla, hummus, olive spread, portabella mushrooms on a toasted bun, veggie burgers.

    oh, and lightlife bacon on toast. this is great with margarine, with a margarine/maple syrup spread, or with vegan cheese grilled up.

    mmm...bacon with maple syrup/margarine. YUM!

    Is this is because it is cooked in the same tins that they cook their meat spreads in? Or is it because of a direct ingredient?
