Sandwich Platter

Get inspired with these easy, tasty sandwich filling ideas. Perfect for every day lunches or special picnics and afternoon teas.

Filling ideas:

  • An incredible, flavoursome take on a classic try our ultimate vegan smoked ‘salmon’ and cream cheese on a toasted bagel
  • For a delicious taste of Italy try vegan mozzarella and pesto on a toasted ciabatta, with a layer of tomatoes and basil leaves.
  • Instead of a classic BLT sandwich, make a TLT – tempeh, lettuce, and tomato. It’s not an original concept, but if each component is packed with flavour it’s a real winner! Add grilled tempeh alongside oven-roasted cherry tomatoes, shredded lettuce and a generous slather of vegan mayo with some avocado, on thick slices of sourdough bread.
  • For a spicy option, toast a French baton, add pickled veggies (best done the night before), coriander, fresh chilli, some deliciously marinated tofu and you have a delicious vegan Banh Mi Sandwich.
  • Classic finger sandwich; cream cheese and sliced cucumber.
  • Eastern delight: hummus, shop bought falafel and grated carrot.
  • Taste of India: shop bought onion bhaji or vegetable pakora with mango chutney or vegan raita.
  • Mexican magic: guacamole, onion, tomato and sliced vegan ready to eat sausages such as VBites.
