It’s time for back to school and busy schedules! You may opt to make lunches and snacks for yourself or your little ones- After all, homemade is always better than buying lunch or providing store-bought options. Going back to school has never been easier. These easy and healthy lunches are also perfect no-Heat Lunches You Can Bring to Work, or as an easy light dinner in your dorm room.
Vegan Egg Salad Sandwich: The main ingredient in this vegan sandwich is tofu. If you’re thinking “tofu is out of my comfort zone”, or the idea of raw tofu scares you, don’t worry- I tested it on all my friends and they couldn’t believe it wasn’t eggs! In this recipe, the tofu is replacing the egg, and we are using black salt to get that signature sulphur egg flavour. and the mayo is just vegan mayo! This tofu egg salad sandwich also uses fresh herbs and celery, and is placed on toasted whole grain rye with sprouts and tomato.
This vegan and vegetarian chicken salad sandwich recipe uses mock chicken, available at most health food, or healthy grocery stores and larger well-stocked grocery stores. I also used vegan mayo here, but you could also use avocado if you wish. I served this vegetarian chicken salad on a bed of lettuce, cucumber, and tomato. You could also serve it on top of a fresh salad if you’re gluten free.
Roasted Sweet Potato & Hummus Sandwich: The flavour combinations of this sandwich are incredible. Roasted slices of sweet potato, roasted red peppers, fresh, crispy basil a mound of peppery alfalfa sprouts, and chewy whole-grain rye bread to hold it all together.
Don’t forget to wrap these guys in a food-safe reusable sandwich wrap or bag or use a tupperware in order to cut down on plastic waste.
