Ultimate 4-Layer Vegan Sandwich

“You’re crazy.”

Those were the encouraging words that came out of Eric’s mouth when I told him I was hoping to post 20 times this month for Vegan Mofo. [Here is my first introductory post + recipe in case you missed it.]

“Twenty TIMES?”

“Yeah………………………………….so?”

He is right, it is crazy, but I’ve always liked a good challenge. For those of you who don’t know, Vegan Mofo encourages participating bloggers to post each day for the month of September, or at least aim for 20 posts (5 posts a week). I haven’t posted that frequently since I was knee high to a grasshopper!

My normal blog posts usually take me a few days each from start to finish, so I may need a miracle to make this 20 posts in a month thing happen. Or at least, a good streak of recipe testing. Dream big or go home, right? There’s no crying in baseball! err…blogging.

If all goes according to plan you will likely see much more of me this month. How much more is yet to be determined, but one thing is for sure; I am super excited for this month’s theme! I can’t promise I’ll crank out 20 posts, but I will do my best to make you sick of me by the end of the month.

My second recipe for Vegan Mofo is one that I couldn’t wait to share. I’m going to try to hold back the drool while I talk about it. Just be glad this isn’t a video recipe or things could get weird.

I don’t think I’ve ever made a better sandwich than this, vegan or not. Normally, I don’t post sandwich recipes on the blog because I think they are slap together meals, but this…I just had to share.

I often make toasted sandwiches with hummus, avocado, and tomato – they never fail – but this time I wanted to kick things up a few notches with a homemade nut-free pesto. The 4 layers are made up of hummus (I went with Tribe roasted garlic – so obsessed with it right now), avocado, tomato, and homemade Sun-dried Tomato, Hemp, Basil Pesto. Dear lord. Oh, and some red pepper flakes, freshly ground pepper, and sea salt because we’re living on the edge. The only thing I would change next time is to add lettuce for a little crunch – I totally forgot the lettuce while sitting on the ground lining up toasted bread slices to photograph. Priorities?

This is serious business, this sandwich creation.

The homemade pesto commands the taste bud’s attention with its tangy, flavourful ingredients – sun-dried tomatoes, lemon, basil, garlic – oh yea! It’s a new fav. Thanks to the hemp seeds it’s nut-free and higher in protein to boot. I actually created this recipe last year, but since I’m not including it in the cookbook anymore I get to share it with you early. Also worth noting – dipping carrot sticks into this pesto is a tasty way to make carrot sticks exciting. Or, the pesto makes enough for 4 sandwiches (2 tbsp per sandwich) or 1 epic, sandwich-of-your-dreams (1/2 cup pesto)…your call. One thing is for sure, you have to make this as soon as possible.

Ultimate 4-Layer Vegan Sandwich

Vegan, no bake/raw, nut-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free

By

Toasted sprouted grain bread is slathered with hummus and homemade sun-dried tomato hemp pesto all topped off with sliced avocado, tomato, and red pepper flakes. This is one vegan sandwich that you won't soon forget! Add some lettuce for a nice crunch. This would also be fantastic in a wrap if you don't want to use toasted bread. For a gluten-free option, use gluten-free bread (or wrap) or try serving it wrapped in Bibb lettuce for a grain-free option.

Yield
4 sandwiches
Prep Time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Total Time

Ingredients:

For the Sun-dried Tomato Hemp Basil Pesto: (makes 1/2 cup)
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes (about 6)
  • 1/4 cup hulled hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1-2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
For the sandwich:
  • sprouted-grain bread (or wraps or Bibb lettuce)
  • 2 tablespoons hummus
  • 2 tablespoons Sun-dried Tomato Hemp Basil Pesto (from above)
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1-2 thin tomato slices
  • lettuce
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • pinch of salt & pepper

Directions:

  1. For the pesto: Mince garlic in a food processor. Add the rest of the pesto ingredients and process until the pesto is smooth, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed.
  2. Toast the bread in a toaster.
  3. Spread bread with hummus and pesto (one on each). Layer on the avocado, tomato, and lettuce. Sprinkle on red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Slice in half and enjoy!

Tips:

Note: I use Food for Life Ezekiel sprouted grain bread.

I don’t have a food processor. I do have a Vitamix though. Can you recommend an affordable food processor? Thank you! Gretchen

9 Angela (Oh She Glows) September 4, 2013

I use a Cuisinart and I love it. Mine is a 14 cup but it’s not necessary to go that large (they come in smaller sizes too). goodluck with your search! Also, it might be possible to make pesto in a Vitamix too. I haven’t tried it myself though because I prefer the processor when making spreads.

I bet you could use the Vitamix, just on a lower setting. I have the 5200 model and it does a pretty good job chopping at Variable setting 4 or so.

I know what you mean about posting so frequently; it takes me days to write, edit my writing, edit photos, and format my posts, which is why I’ve never done it before. But I decided to make short little snippets of blog posts, so I won’t get overwhelmed. I’m more than impressed that your posts still read and look like you’re spent days perfecting them!

I love this sandwich. I make a similiar kind of thing quite often. I even like it for breakfast sometimes. The more red pepper flakes the better.

On an unrelated note and I apologize if you have already mentioned this in your blog, but is your husband vegan too? Mine is not. For the most part my husband is very cool with the plant-based foods that I make for us and our kids. But every now and then he makes comments about how the vegan diet is not entirely satisfying him. He is free to make and eat whatever he wants, but I won’t cook meat and do not love it around the house to be honest. How do you handle this or is yours a fully veg household?

Reply

68 Angela (Oh She Glows) September 4, 2013

Hi Laura, Eric is not totally vegan, but he eats vegan a lot of the time. If he wants to prepare meat (which is very rare because he hates to cook!) he will do so for himself and chooses organic meat from a local farm. Since he doesn’t like to cook, he mostly just eats what I make so it works out. Plus, meat is expensive. It was difficult in the beginning though when he wouldn’t eat a wide variety of foods. We ended up preparing a lot of different meals during that time. Luckily the meals have grown on him. :) I think it’s important to allow him to feel free to eat what he wants and just lead by example and wow him with good food.

When I saw this recipe today, I knew I would make it for lunch today. Picked the basil this morning, made the pesto – used raw pumpkin seeds instead of the hemp (split-hemp seeds were $16 a pound at Whole Foods yesterday)….had homegrown tomatoes and a perfectly ripe avocado along with fresh humus…..this was meant to be! My husband and I adored this sandwich – the pesto makes it so tasty. I served the yummy sandwich with steamed broccoli and a small cup of fresh cantaloupe with mint….my husband called it “the perfect lunch and the perfect amount of lunch.” Thanks so much for a fabulous recipe!

This is probably the best sandwich I have ever made, thank you so much for posting this recipe! I ate it three times last week and even shared with two of my coworkers who enjoyed it as much as I did. The only thing I did differently was use pine nuts in the pesto instead of hemp seeds, and packed in some shredded carrots and sliced red onion on on the sandwich.

Well I was putting the pesto together and decided to blend before adding the basil and the sun dried tomatoes. OMG this would be amazing as dressing.

I made this today for lunch. It was fantastic and tasty even though a little heavy in the garlic which I didn’t mind at all. Sandwich ideas are always appreciated. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

To add an additional kick to this, you may want to look into Sabra Italian Herb Hummus. May go really good with the Pesto.

Hi, it looks lovely! but if I can’t get my hands on hemp seeds, what can I use instead?

I would try sunflower seeds? I haven’t tried it but it should be fine for the pesto.

Add some bean sprouts and this would be even more perfect! I love hummus and avocado.

I work for the government and am always a candidate for random drug testing and I am worried about eating hemp seeds because I don’t want to be positive for MJ. Do you have a alternative you like also instead of hemp seeds?

I had alfalfa sprouts so I threw those on instead of lettuce and it was awesome! One of the best sandwiches I’ve had. Thank you!

We have Wednesday night dinners at my church, and last night was sandwich night. I was asked to contribute 10 sandwiches. My sandwiches are usually pretty basic, but I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. What a hit!! Not only were they absolutely delicious, they looked so pretty cut into triangles and arranged on a platter. Thanks!!
