Posted by 3 years ago | Permalink | Comments (9)

Making the perfect sandwich is an art form. The concept may be simple – take two slices of bread and insert your (animal-free) filling of choice – but the creative possibilities are endless!

Sampling some of the brand-new range of Violife vegan cheese from Veganic got the PETA office thinking about our favourite cruelty-free sandwiches. Here are some of our top picks:

  1. Kirsty’s Classic “Cheese” Sandwich: There’s nothing fancy about this sandwich, but oh my, it is tasty. Recreate it yourself with thick-cut seeded bread, smothered with basil and cashew pesto, then topped with curly kale, red onions, cherry tomatoes and Violife pizza-style “cheese”.Kirsty's Sandwich
  2. peta2’s Mega Veggie Burger Bagel: Veggie burger, check. Toasted bagel, check. Ketchup and mustard, check. Fresh salad, check. Result: a satisfying sandwich that’s a meal in itself.Veggie Burger
  3. Caitlin’s Cheese ‘n’ Sausage Sarnie: Pumpkin and spelt bread, Violife “cheese” with peppers, egg-free garlic mayo, spinach, tomato, avocado and “Wheaty” vegan doner kebab equal a feast in sandwich form.Caitlin Sausage
  4. Falafel Pita Sandwich: Add a dollop of hummus for unbeatable Middle-Eastern–inspired munching.Falafel
  5. Will’s Mustardy Mushroom Baguette: Combine a freshly baked baguette, mushrooms sautéed in garlic oil, grilled wheat sausages, a couple of slices of Violife vegan herb cheese and a thick squeeze of strong Finnish mustard – and you’ve got a sandwich that’s perfect for the morning after the night before.Mustard Baguette
  6. The Vegan BLT: You can’t beat a classic. Fakin’ bacon strips and avocado are the secrets to veganising this staple.Vegan BLT

    My favourite is ‘chick pea mush’ which I’ve seen called ‘mock tuna salad’ – crushed chick peas, onion, gherkins and capers all mixed up with some mustard and vegan mayo – mmm.

    Sliced avocado with hummus, spinach and sundried tomatoes on wholemeal bread

    I love sweet chilli houmous, tomato cous cous and baby leaf spinach in my sandwiches! I’m a newly converted vegan and it’s safe to say I’m addicted to this one!

    I love sweet roasted veg like pepper, onion, beetroot and sweet potato and tomatoes topped with a fresh herbs and baby spinach leaves in a Tortilla wrap.

    Violife does taste good but ………… no protein?

    Toasted sourdough bread with sesame seeds, little bit of dairy-free butter, garlic powder, tomato and onions, and dried oregano!
