Vegans have been getting more creative with sandwich fillings as our hunger for new tastes emerge. I would have never thought of beets being a sufficient substitute for a typical meat cheese bread combination, but it’s more than satisfying and incredibly great for your body. This sandwich was largely inspired by Ecliptic Brewing Co’s Beet Melt.
Beet and Apple Slaw Sandwich
one small golden beet, sliced thinly
one sourdough roll (or whatever)
half of an avocado, sliced
one slice of Daiya Provolone (optional)
half of a golden delicious apple, julienned
one small onion, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon of Vegenaise
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
Mix the slaw ingredients together and let it sit in the fridge for the flavors to meld together. Bring a pot of water to a boil. You can either double boil the sliced beets, boil them directly in the water, or steam them. Prepare the cucumber and avocado slices. Grill/broil/toast the bread you are using. Once the beets look a bit translucent/are cooked, combine them in a small bowl and put the sliced daiya on top, so that it melts.
Combine the sandwich ingredients. It will fall. It will get messy. You have been warned.
