Sandwich Ideas

I looked through a couple old threads, but could still really use some inspiration. Besides the usuals:

- Hummus, tomato, salad

- Peanut butter and jam/apple/banana

- Yogurt cheese and cucumber or banana

- Soy sausage or deli slices, cucumber, tomato (are any of the store-bough sausages or slices good? I make my own sausages, but they take way too long to make regularly.)

- Spicy black bean dip, tomato, salad

... what other (vegan) sandwiches do you like? I'm more interested in things with some actual protein/substance like bean dips, etc than roasted veggies and those sorts of things... university student therefore I have no time for taking things like that, and they don't survive my lunchbag. I'm really tempted to load up on some deli slices and sausages (even though the Fuhrman crew will jump me, ohemgeeSODIUM) just because I need some variety. >.> Baked tofu, chickpea salad sandwiches, and other... weird vegan foods (yeah, yeah, I know I'm vegan too) don't really appeal to me.


BTW, how terrible-tasting and bad-for-you are the soy products? I'm ohsotempted.

onion/green bell pepper/tomato was always tasty and simple... (could use hummus or black bean spread on both slices first~ spicy is good with this mix)

Peanut butter and jelly!
Simple, filling, survives any lunch box

My sandwiches are usually boring or not terribly filling and I fill up on sides. Why not do a veg sandwich or wrap (a wrap would hold up better in a baggie and hold the veggies in) and have a bean dip with raw veggies on the side?

My favorite lighter sandwiches are along the lines of spinach & tomato with spicy mustard... (could make a Chick*n salad sandwich with some chick*n strips if you can find any that are vegan)

You could always skip the sandwich and do crackers and peanut butter, and veggies (carrot and celery survive well)~ stuff like that.

I know it's hard to get out of the routine, but there are easy portable options out there that don't revolve around bread slices

I use veggies and bean dip, crackers & peanut butter, an apple, banana, plums, carrot & celery sticks, raisins, etc~ I usually bring more than I think I'll need, and I have enough to share if need be. (and I'm feeding my kids most of the time, too, so gotta have kid-friendly stuff too)

I had a really good sandwich today... thick slices of bread, vegan mayo & spicy mustard, tomato, avacado, spinach... YUM. Just needed some wheat thins on the side and I was good to go.
The avacado's healthy fat helped fill me up I guess.

Nuts would be a good side item, too. There are always soy yogurts & fresh fruits, too.
Top with granola!

(I'm making myself hungry again, LOL)
