30 Best Vegetarian Sandwich Recipes | Hurry The Food Up

The mighty sandwich: staple of any lunchbox. But how to make delicious vegetarian sandwiches? Our list of 30 Best Vegetarian Sandwich recipes is here to help.

I think we can all agree that anything tastes better when you whack it between two slices of bread, whatever your diet.

But why eat meat when you can enjoy vegetarian sandwich fillings that are just as (if not more!) delicious, and often healthier.

Vegetarian sandwich recipes with cheese

For starters, when making vegetarian sandwiches, we have a key player on our side: CHEESE.

Vegetarian cheese sandwiches are INCREDIBLE – ooey, gooey, melted cheese, stacked with roasted veg, maybe some pesto, between grilled sourdough…well, read our 30 Best Veggie Sandwich Recipes and find out for yourself!

Aside from the million variations of veggie sandwich recipes involving cheese, there are some new classics arising in vegetarian sandwich recipes, which we have made sure to feature.

Other popular vegetarian sandwich ideas

Veggie avocado sandwiches, for example. Avocados are creamy, delicious and full of health benefits. Popping them in a sandwich is a great way to get a load of their goodness.

Aside from the classic avocado toast, you can smash them up with eggs or chickpeas or layer them with other veggies (or cheese – double-creamy!).

Another popular vegetarian sandwich idea is the chickpea salad sandwich.

This can be a great way to mimic the taste and texture of tuna. Or enjoy them with lemon and garlic.

And don’t forget the sweet vegetarian sandwiches, like the humble PB&J! We have a few recipes which bring this classic to a new level, perfect as a vegetarian breakfast sandwich or healthy snack.

With so many delicious vegetarian sandwich recipes, you will never eat a boring old cheddar or egg salad again!
