To keep with the theme of easy recipes that can be made in minutes, today I’m featuring sandwiches. Many people have “go-to” sandwiches that they make over and over again (myself included), but isn’t it fun to mix it up once in a while?


Below is an easy recipe for faux turkey melts. All you need for this jazzed-up version of your plain ol’ faux turkey sandwich is bread, avocado, vegan turkey slices, vegan cheese, and a heaping spoonful of vegan mayo. After layering the ingredients, place the open-face sandwich under a broiler until the cheese begins to melt and the bread becomes lightly toasted. Simple, yet delish.

Here are a few more interesting vegan sandwich ideas you can try if faux turkey isn’t your favorite:

•Spread the vegan mayonnaise on one slice of bread. Add the turkey slices, the avocado, and then the cheese.

•Place both the dressed bread and the plain bread under a broiler until the cheese begins to melt and the bread toasts. Remove from the oven and close the sandwich.
