Vegan sandwich FAQ

After scrolling through our list of delicious vegan sandwich recipes, some questions might have popped up. We have anticipated a couple here and answered them in detail. If you have any more, do post them in the comments section.

What bread can I use in a vegan sandwich?

A note on bread: most bread is vegan and therefore good to use in a vegan sandwich. However, there are a few to look out for, especially if you are new to veganism.

Some are made using milk, whey powder, or eggs, so always read the label! Check out this article, if you have doubts about what bread to use in your vegan sandwich.

Our list of best vegan sandwich recipes brings together lots of healthy and delicious plant-based sandwich options, so you know where to turn if you need a healthy vegan sandwich recipe in a hurry!

What can a vegan eat in a sandwich?

Whether you are strictly vegan or you follow a plant-based lifestyle, there are plenty of delicious vegan sandwiches for you to get stuck into.

Crisp crunchy vegetables or roasted veggies slathered in vegan dressing, smoked tofu, chickpeas, avocado, bean pates… the possibilities are endless!

If I can give you a formula, it would be along the lines of:

A creamy element to do the work of mayo – hummus and/or avocado is excellent, if not the better, stand in:

  • some grilled veg like yellow or red bell peppers and tomato
  • some fresh veg like sliced cucumber, onions for added crunch, maybe some olives or capers
  • iron-rich baby spinach or peppery arugula to bring it all together.

For added oomph, bring on the beans – bean patties, or even just cooked beans especially if you are using a pita pocket. I think the question should actually be, what CAN’T a vegan eat in a sandwich!
