Why are vegan sandwiches so hard to find? Vegan Sandwiches are not Unicorns

Seriously though, vegan sandwiches are not that hard.

Dear people that make those pre-made sandwiches for supermarkets and service stations and other places that are designed for busy people on the go, why do you make vegan sandwiches so hard to find. They aren't unicorns or aurora in the desert. They're really easy. Look here's three without even trying, there's hummus with almost any veg you like; the ALT avocado, lettuce & tom; or Grilled veg with cheese-less pesto or anchovy free olive tapenade. There, without even thinking, boom.

Please, for beets sake, stop putting yogurt sauce on everything with hummus. Stop thinking every veggie sandwich needs cheese. The former can be happily replaced by Thai sweet chili sauce. The later is just not true.

And just because I don't eat meat doesn't mean I've got time to pack a lunch whenever I'm out and about. Or that I want to succumb to just eating starch if I'm in a hurry.

Honestly, it's not that complicated. Vegans and vegetarians love sammiches just as much as everybody else.

Don't believe me? Need some ideas? Try some of my recipes and even a book of 100 vegan sandwiches dedicated to the subject.


  1. Lol great post. I have had the same frustration; especially with the cheese on sandwiches that would have been perfect without. Ugh.

    1. I know right? It just makes me so hangry! It's like people just can't help themselves with the yogurt and cheese and the mayo. I make my own vegan sandwiches all the time, so what gives?
