    Need some ideas for non-traditional meatless sandwiches.

      1. Deli-sliced tofurkey, lettuce, and tomato, with dijon mustard.

      2. Fresh mozzarella slices, tomato, and basil- caprese pannini.

      3. Grilled eggplant cheeseburgers

      4. Cashew butter, fried plantain, and raspberry jam, on toasted rye.

      5. Jicama slaw. with agave syrup and lime juice between fried flour tortillas with cinnamon and sugar.

      6. Grilled zucchini fajitas, with grilled onions, peppers, and guacamole.

      I haven't tried any of these. just ideas.

      You all have great ideas and have given me inspiration . I am gearing my sandwiches towards teenagers and need to give all your great ideas creative names that will hide the great taste contents.  BTW one of my favorites is American cheese on choice of bread with mayo, sliced cucumber and celery salt. Try it ummm!

      Cream-cheese and tomato. cucumber and tomato. Red onion and cream- cheese. Sun-dried tomato, olives and cream-cheese. Curried carrot (shredded and simmered.)  Bean sprouts and pumpkin seeds.

    I love French goat's cheese (like a Valençay) sandwiches made using a freshly baked baguette.  You need a baguette because slice bread is too soft and it doesn't really help to delight on the texture of the cheese.

    marinated portobella, roasted reds, goat cheese, balsamic on a nice crusty bread.

    eggplant parm w/ mushroom and fontinelli

    mini veggie pizzas on flatbreads

    peanutbutter and banana on whole wheat with honey (super energizing)

    asparagus sauteed in garlic wrapped and cooked in croissant dough (pillsbury works) your choice of cheese melted inside


    ...just another tasty week at the sunforged household

      Mmm, these are great ideas.

      I also like taking whole wheat wraps, and slicing up all left over or soon to wither veggies so I use them. I take the sliced up veggies (tomato, mushroom, asparagus, salad, radishes...anything really), toss them in some italian dressing, maybe add some cheese and roll them up into a wrap.

      Simple yet delicious and not wasteful.

      Cooking a slice of eggplant in some light soy sauce will make it taste meaty if you crave a meat-flavor.

      Any veggies on bread with red pepper hummus is a great substitute instead of mayo.

        i really enjoy eggplant for just that reason, it takes to seasoning and one can really play with the texture..ill def try the soy sauce touch

        as a general thing - a little extra scorch/crunch on the bread or veggies seems to appeal to meat eaters and reformed carnivores a bit more as a replacement - hence why almost everything i suggested was a baked sandwich


        -and now I have to go eat! really

      Thanks sunforged sound good. Do you think I could make the vegi pizza on flat bread into a sandwich?

      1. sunforged profile image73
        sunforgedposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        sure, fold it in half !..or use two slices of flatbread and make it stuffed pizza style

        plus the flatbread part is pretty general

        try pita with feta, your choice of veggies

        or tortillas with cheddar, peppers, onions, any traditional taco toppings..good sandwich to keep your protein up with some blackbeans added

        or focaccia bread a little oil, diced tomato fresh basil, fresh mozz

        all are sandwich style and have minimal prep, set your oven or toaster oven to preheat - while you prepare it..the longest cooking time  on this list would be sauteing onions

    peanutbutter, banana and honey?  I need to try that sunforged, I need something energizing!

    1. Beth100 profile image83
      Beth100posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      We shake a bit of cinnamon on top...soo delish!

    2. sunforged profile image73
      sunforgedposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      it really is energizing..short term energy from the honey long term from the carbs, plus the protein thats needed for healthy veg lifestyle

      its kind of ridiculous but occasionally ill make that sandwhich on french toast and def use cinnamon then

      But keep in mind..a very similar sandwich was an integral part of the creation of "fat elvis"...his fave was peanutbutter and mashed banana sandwiched fried in bacon fat!...of course he would eat a dozen in a sitting...that might have had something to do with it

      This is my breakfast most days of the week-- on double fiber bread. Filling, healthful, protien-- with a cup of green tea.
      You can drizzle some honey on it, but that makes it a little messy.

    Feta cheese, tomato, and sliced Kalamata olives big_smile

    Grated Cheddar with either sliced spring onion or a few slivers of raw red onion.

    Nice and simple:

    Slices of tomatoes, cucumbers and onion

    Provolone cheese

    Pepper rings (mild or hot)

    Mayo (gotta have mayo!)

    Oil & vinegar dressing (or whatever your fave is)

    I like eggplant but can never seem to cook it at home.

    I take a crusty baguette and drizzle it with olive oil, then add basil, tomato and mozzarella and toast it, then arugula or some other lettuce, and drizzle with balsamic. Mmmm.

    Or I make Greek Salad pita pockets. Warm pita with salad tossed in a vinaigrette.
    Or I use a good thick sliced wheat bread and put a little veggie cream cheese, sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, and sprouts.

    I like slices of avocado with lettuce, tomato and onion.

    Sliced smoked tofu is good.

    A vegan friend used to spread bread with marmite and then with peanut butter when he wanted a replacement for cheese spread.

    A crazy favourite of mine is fried onion between bread spread with tomato ketchup.

    My mum liked a sandwich of lightly salted sliced radishes.

    You can try spreading some hummus in between two slices of bread for a snack. 

    You can also grill a portabello mushroom with cheese and put it in between two hamburger patties and you've got a veggy cheeseburger.

    1. falafel in rollup
    2. faux sliced beef or faux chicken with avocado in wheat bun.

    I fry planks of tofu in my cast iron skillet, add fresh minced garlic. I can't have bread any longer, so I use corn tortillas (also quick seared in the skillet) to make more of a wrap. Fresh slices of tomato or avocado, a little sea salt. Slice in some sweet onion if you like savory. Heaven!

    Also fantastic- oregano flavored hummus with fresh sprouts in a seared tortilla.

    Depending on how strict of a vegetarian you are, eggs are a good option for protein. Also I've found that a lot of name brand vegetarian items like bacon, hamburger and chicken all taste very good (in some cases better than the meat alternative). A BLT with vegetarian bacon is amazing!
