Please can anyone share what they put in their sandwiches, especially for protein?

You get enough protein from plants alone smile so aslong as you fill up with Spinach / salad etc you're fine. I have -

Hummus and salad
Avocado and Spinach
Chickpea mash (search no tuna chickpea filling)
Falafel, olives and Hummus
Baked crispy Tofu with salad leaves
Vegan cheese and Branston

I've just realised our sandwiches aren't really full of protein - but as its only 1 meal I don't stress as our main meal is always protein heavy...
We love salad sandwiches the best - but these only work if at home as they don't travel in a lunchbox - packed full into big doorstops!
Others are: marmite, peanut butter, houmous and for a special treat I have surprised my daughter with honey or nutella! We're not fans in this house - but could also do various jams, marmalades or curds as well

Honey is vegan?

I love tofu mayonnaise with salad - mash silken tofu with vegan mayo, salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon with salad in a sandwich. Soooo good.

Hummus, roasted red peppers and rocket.
Avocado with vegan cream cheese and black pepper on bagels.
Almond butter and jam
Roast aubergine slices (can buy them frozen in Tesco) with tahini and spinach.

Will think of some more for you!

Thanks for the quick replies this morning! I didn't know you could buy frozen aubergine slices! I love them

Need to make sure the bread is vegan too, some bakeries include milk proteins.

Havingahorridtime Thu 01-Feb-18 08:08:42

Honey is definitely not vegan!

Wombat44 Thu 01-Feb-18 08:12:57

Nutella isn't vegan either.

I like peanut butter and green grape sandwiches!

I'm vegetarian do i haven't checked the ingredients, but I like the chickpea spread that you can buy in Holland and Barrett in a tin that looks like cat foodshock.
Or I mash up some home made bean chili and have that with rocket in a sandwich.

Cranks or someone do an onion bhaji and chutney sandwich that is lovely.

DisabledUserName Thu 01-Feb-18 11:36:22

Peanut butter and jam
Roasted veg and tahini
Cheatin' sandwich filling range (fake chicken, ham etc)
Hummus and red pepper on a Pita bread
Banana and sugar grin
More fancy ones:

DisabledUserName Thu 01-Feb-18 11:38:03

Also sainsburies do 2 now - roasted veg wrap and edame and green veg.
Co op do onion bhaji sarnie which is delicious.
Tesco have the new wicked range of pre made lunches
M and s always have one or two.
So the supermarkets have upped their game a lot recently with the pre packed sandwiches

Liked by my fam & me:

violife cream cheese with tomato relish
Cat food pate as above, you can also get one in a tube
Quorn vegan fish fingers and loads of vinegar & ketchup
Salad and veganaise - tastes so much like real mayo
Other types of nut butters
Marmite & fake cheese slices
Sweet freedom choc spread

Make sure your Marge is vegan, vitalite is our fave

I like wraps as they are better suited to protein type fillings.

E.g. Wraps with hummus/tahini with leaves, leftover quinoa, maybe some avocado or grated carrot (dried on kitchen roll to remove excess moisture)

Wraps with falafel and hummus/salad. Or onion Bahji chutney and salad.

Wraps with taifun smoked tofu with seeds and salad.

Wraps with hummus and peppers and or olives and salad

Sandwiches with tahini and marmite (even my meat eating son likes these) or nut butter and grated carrot or apple.

Thanks I'm going to have to print this page off. I'm moving more to this way of eating as I'm trying to give up dairy. Quite hard as I have to cook meat for my husband and baby but looking forward to trying all these out. I do love a Sarnie!

Mysteriouscurle Thu 01-Feb-18 20:16:58

I think Quorn have 2 new products out that are vegan, ham/chicken style slices for sandwiches. Havent tried them but that might be nice with some lettuce and tomato

Homemade vegan 'pate' is delicious for sandwiches.

There are various recipees out there, my favourite is red kidney bean pate.

PaperdollCartoon Fri 02-Feb-18 08:06:35

MissBax you can get enough protein from plant sources, but leaves and salad are not very good sources. It’s important to eat a range of high protein plants like beans, lentils, tofu, chickpeas etc every day to get all the different amino acids. Just filling up on lettuce and spinach isn’t adequate for protein needs

claraschu Fri 02-Feb-18 08:14:06

My favourite is tahini, miso and sauerkraut, (sometimes with a few leaves- arugula or mixed salad)

WiggyPig Fri 02-Feb-18 13:33:06

Chickpea "tuna" (tastes nothing like tuna btw, but gets the right consistency) made by mashing up chickpeas with vegan mayo, sweetcorn and a sprinkle of nori if you have it

Violife slices, beetroot and hummus

Tofu frankfurters - you can get them from Ocado / waitrose

TLT (Tempeh, Lettuce, Tomato)

Avocado and hummus

Mashed beans, cucumber and violife slice

Quorn pieces with veganaise mixed with curry paste/powder. Vegan coronation chicken - sort of grin

Dalesgirl16 Fri 09-Feb-18 10:39:15

Thanks all. I think I'm going to start cooking up a load of lentils to last a few days too so I can just throw them into lunches.

The Linda McCartney shredded duck, rice and avocado in a wrap is a fave

Happy50 Sat 10-Feb-18 21:03:28

When I first became a vegetarian in the early 90s I use to eat a carrot pate found in health shops. I loved it but can't find it anywhere now. Does anyone have any ideas
