Vegan sandwich recipe

19th May 2020

As the UK’s lockdown continues, you may be finding your lunch options have become somewhat repetitive. So, by way of inspiration, and as a nod to National Sandwich Week, our chefs took a moment to step out of the kitchen and share an alternative lunchtime recipe for one of our vegan afternoon tea favourites – avocado and coriander salad sandwiches.

Vegan sandwich recipe


3 soft avocados
1 finely chopped red onion
2 large chopped tomatoes or a handful of smaller tomatoes
1 lemon
Handful of coriander
30ml olive oil
Plus, if you like a little heat 1/2 finely chopped chili

Vegan sandwich recipe


  1. Remove the avocados from their skins and blend (mashing with a fork will also suffice)
  2. Add the red onion, tomatoes, olive oil, a squeeze of lemon and the chili if you want it a little punchier
  3. Mix the ingredients, then spread onto your choice of bread
  4. Garnish with a little chopped fresh coriander and enjoy!
