Deli-style Sandwich or Wrap

Deli-style Sandwich or Wrap

This is the vegan version of those big, American-style club sandwiches and it works well with regular bread/wraps or GF alternatives. If you are wheat-free rather than gluten-free, try rye bread, pumpernickel or something along those lines… deliciously different. Crusty, fresh bread such as sourdough is great if can get it. If you don’t live near an independent bakers, check the vegan lists for all the major chains. Aldi’s list includes some great in-store bread and much of it is vegan but it’s not the only supermarket with vegan bread. Always go with a wholemeal bread option where possible – much more healthy and tasty!

Fillings? Lots of ideas! You can go the vegan meat/cheese route or choose a more ‘wholefood’ type of filling – or a mixture, it’s up to you! And there are GF options too. See below…
