Create Your Own Plant-Based Sandwiches


Who doesn’t love a piled-high, overflowing sandwich that’s filled with a rainbow of different ingredients? Sandwiches might be a classic lunchtime meal, but our versions are so stuffed with ingredients, you’ll want to have them for dinner too. Our Rainbow Sandwiches combine your fave whole-grain bread with an array of veggies, fruits, savory spreads and plenty of protein to make a well-rounded, perfectly balanced meal. Plus, they’re completely customizable – and super simple to make.

Here’s how to create your own plant-based sandwich: Select a protein, flavor booster, a veggie bacon, as many toppings as you fancy and then stack them on your choice of bread!

5 steps to a sandwich victory

3. Proteins

Add one of our meatless proteins as the main event to create your plant-based sandwich. You can choose any one of these tasty picks:

4. Veggie twists on bacon

Sure, you don’t have to choose a just-as-good-as-bacon topper – it’s optional but highly recommended to give your sandwich even more texture and flavor. Try these:

5. Veggie & fruit toppings

Pile your sandwich with as many colorful veg as you can fit before it topples over. Need some inspiration? We suggest:
