My (vegetarian) high school Spanish teacher, annually drew a very lifelike picture of a turkey on a platter, with a speech bubble “¡Salvame!” which was pretty much the end of my eating turkey at Thanksgiving. And if opposites attract, wherever we go, a Thanksgiving Sandwich is without fail, Scott’s favorite to order if it’s on a menu. When I recently saw a recipe for a vegan version, I jumped at the chance to make it. Scott loved it (even without the turkey), and I could enjoy all the flavors of a Thanksgiving dinner, without the turkey. The best part, it’s SUPER easy to assemble.
Vegan Thanksgiving Sandwich
adapted from Happy Healthy Vegan Kitchen
2 slices bread (we use Canyon Bakehouse Mountain White) or 1/2 pita pocket
2 tsp hummus (store-bought is fine)
1 tsp cranberry sauce, store-bought (I like Nature’s Direction Organic)
2 tbsp Sweet Potato Mash
- Toast the bread or pita
- Layer one side of the bread with the hummus, followed by the cranberry sauce, and then the sweet potato mash.
- Sprinkle with parsley and top with lettuce.
- Put the bread top on and enjoy!
