I think most vegans at some point just cram a bunch of veggies and hummus into some bread for lunch. It is quick, easy and frankly most of us are also surprised by how delicious it is! There’s crunch, freshness, lots of different flavours melding and something creamy and delicious to bring it all together.

This sandwich combo is a take on that easy-to-throw-together veggie sandwich. Instead of hummus it has a roasted bell pepper dip that is as easy to make as hummus but with an entirely different flavour. It’s sweeter and a little spicy with a distinct flavour of the bell pepper of course. For this spread I use jarred roasted red peppers which makes everything so easy (and so tasty). The brine the peppers are in also bring some extra flavour in the sweetness and tang department. Thanks for that brine!

When it comes to the veggies I went with my summer favourites; cucumber, tomato and avocado. I also like to layer some sprouts into it because they are festive and really good for you. You can use any sprouts or microgreens you like or simply swap them for some lettuce or greens. Feel free to change the veggies up with the season as well and this sandwich will keep morphing in your kitchen and bring you sandwich joy all year!
