Vegan Thanksgiving Sandwich

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.

Leafy greens

  2. Layer one side of the bread with the hummus, followed by the cranberry sauce, and then the sweet potato mash.
