Everyone loves sandwiches, especially when they’re short on time or during the hot summer months when heating up the kitchen with a hot stove is less appealing. These vegan sandwiches are perfect for those times!
I absolutely LOVE sandwiches, because they are layers of colorful healthy deliciousness! They are perfect for easy dinners that don’t require any cooking on busy or hot days. They’re also terrific for on-the-go lunches to take to work, school, or picnics.
With these easy vegan sandwiches, there are so many options. They can be served not only on bread but also on whole wheat wraps or even in lettuce wraps. These are some of our very favorites!
What do you put on sandwiches?
Bread – A nutritious whole grain bread (or gluten-free) is the foundation of any sandwich. However, there is also the option to use wraps or even large green leaves like romaine or collard greens.
Spread – Hummus is one of the very best spread options for a sandwich, in my opinion, and there are so many varieties to choose from. Check out my Hummus Recipes Page.
Veggies – This list can be long or short, but some of my personal favorite veggies for sandwiches include lettuce, cucumbers, tomato, onion, carrots, bell peppers, bean sprouts, black olives, pickles, banana peppers, avocado, and so much more.
Seasonings – These would include salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and dressings like the ones on my Dressings Page.
We sometimes stuff endive or other large lettuce leaves with spreads and serve as an appetizer. It’s a great option for those avoiding bread and gluten products.

Move over B.L.T.! It's time for a new, heart-friendly smoked tempeh TLT sandwich that is slightly crunchy, yet sometimes chewy, smokey, and hearty. So easy and flavorful! This sandwich will surprise you with how delicious it is!
I am from the Carolina's where potato salad, cole slaw, and tomato sandwiches are necessary meal staples. This was a real issue for me after switching to a plant-based lifestyle, because you know what all these foods require right? Mayonnaise!
This oil-free Roasted Red Pepper Humus recipe requires only a handful of ingredients and a few minutes to make. If you have 10 minutes and a blender or food processor, you’ve got a delicious healthy snack.
We have no-oil hummus in our refrigerator most of the time to use as a dip and sandwich/veggie wrap spread.
Eating lots of veggie sandwiches open face, like cucumbers, sprouts, tomatoes with sliced avocado on top. Mashed chickpeas mixed with mustard and chopped walnuts, with tomatoes and sprouts. We love Dr. Barnard's hummus wraps! I even made an "Italian" fake sub with mashed kidney beans with Italian seasonings, garlic, and tomato sauce! :D We could use your talents on maybe improving on the sub, LOL.

Hi Molly- Those all sound delicious and SO healthy! For the Italian sub, I'm betting my Vegan Meatballs would be an awesome addition. https://eatplant-based.com/veggie-barbecue-balls/
