Breakfast Sandwich & Burger Recipes
Mac Daddy Breakfast Sandwich
Just by looking at the photo we already know the recipe title is absolutely correct, this is the daddy!
Cheesy hashbrowns, sausage, eggs and yes, it’s all vegan! The sausages used are a branded variety, if you’re unable to source them just use your favorite. Guaranteed to keep you going all day long!
Blueberry Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Florian from Contentedness Cooking creates this monster sandwich with just 4 ingredients. I never thought blueberry and grilled (vegan) cheese would go well.
You’re looking at a max of 20 minutes to bring this together. If you want to be satisfied, this is it!
Grilled Nutella Banana Sandwich
If you didn’t already know, chocolate spread and bananas were made to go together. This takes it one step further by grilling it as a sandwich.
The recipe contains a link to ‘Vegan Nutella’ although you could save yourself some time and use a store-bought spread that you know is vegan. Delicious!
Roasted Tofu and Guacamole Sandwich
Two of the heartiest ingredients in a sandwich at the same time!
The recipes divided in two, the guacamole and the tofu which is roasted.
You could save yourself some time and simply smash avocado and then drizzle with lemon or lime juice before seasoning. Get yourself the best quality bread you can and enjoy.
Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich with Vegan Mozzarella and Pesto
If you have any Italian ancestry, this is a sandwich that contains all the colours of the Italian flag!
The ingredients contain two links, one for the zucchini pesto recipe and the second on how to make vegan mozzarella.
If you wanted to save yourself a little time and can source store-bought versions, go right ahead. Although as a side note, the vegan mozzarella cheese recipe is worth a shout-out!
Eggless Tofu Salad Sandwich
At the heart of this recipe is a great way to make tofu scramble. It contains a link to a separate recipe on how to make your own vegan and oil free mayonnaise. Check that out or use a store-bought version.
Put the scramble in a sandwich or even a wrap and enjoy! I splash some chili sauce on mine!
Tomato Cucumber Sandwich on Onion and Corn Bread with Olive and Kale Tapenade
A sandwich that contains lots of goodness! The entire recipe is ‘raw’ including the bread, meaning you will need a dehydrator.
If you don’t have one, you could experiment using your oven on its lowest setting. If you’re not following a 100% raw lifestyle, simply use your favorite bread.
Lots of parts to this sandwich which make it fantastic.
Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich
That’s quite a claim, the ‘ultimate’ breakfast sandwich, is it? I think so.
For me, the best part is how the tofu has been marinated and prepared.
If you’ve never been sure about tofu, then you will be a convert after trying this. If this isn’t the ultimate, it’s close to it!
Buffalo Tofu Chicken Sandwich
While these sandwiches make for a savory breakfast, they can be eaten at any time of day (or night!). In terms of breakfast, lunch or dinner, this recipe leads the pack!
Big and bad and sure to tame the largest appetite in the West (or the East!)
Wild Rice Burgers

Not like your regular vegan burger recipe, this is wholesome, satisfying and full of great ingredients. This is a real treat!

You also get to learn how to make a wonderful chutney. Use the best quality bread as this burger deserves it, and so do you.
Avocado Veggie Sandwich
I compare this sandwich to springboard. In terms of health, this must be one of the best fillings out there.
Why the springboard? Well, this should launch your imagination into how many other different variations of this sandwich you create? Let us know!
10-Minute Bean Burgers
I’ll admit I’m never being huge fan of bean burgers, if you’re a little like me, you must try this recipe.
What I don’t like are bean burgers that simply taste of nothing other than red kidney beans. This recipe really is unlike that.
Coriander, herbs and spices and even porridge oats make this a seriously good burger. Try it and tell me how right I was.
Black Bean Veggie Burgers
Take a look at that picture because what you see really is what you get.
I’ve seen recipes before where bean burgers contain very few ingredients and it may as well be just mashed up beans. Not here.
Sweet potato, almonds, carrots, onions and so much more. The only thing you have to worry about is the type of pickles you want.
Quinoa as an ingredient for burgers is a great idea. If you’ve never used it before, now is the time to start.
Throw in chickpeas (garbanzo beans), garlic, and more and you get yourself the perfect accompaniment to a salad or go all-out get your fries on!
Mushroom Millet Burgers
Just by looking at the photo you can see this burger is of the highest quality.
Not just mushroom and millet, but onion, Dijon mustard and a whole host of herbs and spices. Keep this recipe for when you want to treat that special someone, and that includes you!
Tofu Hemp Burger (Gluten Free)
If you want to stretch out and make something adventurous and incredibly delicious, go for this tofu hemp Burger.
The recipe is divided into three sections: burger, some ideas for serving and finally the herbed white bean spread. Remember, if you get gluten-free bread the entire meal will be suitable if you are unable to tolerate gluten. Very tasty.

If you want a burger that is incredibly healthy and yet satisfying, take a look at this.
This hearty patty is bursting with flavor and beautifully moist. Grab yourself some sliced tomatoes, fresh onion and maybe some mustard. Have a ball!
Chickpea Sandwich & Burger Recipes
Easy Turmeric Chickpea Salad Sandwich
Smashed chickpeas are so versatile, you’re halfway to making hummus, or you can make this tasty sandwich bread with turmeric.
Just a handful of ingredients and a very easy to follow recipe page with photos along the way.
This is a beautiful spread that you can use as the only filling or add your favorite salad accompaniments.
Slow Cooker BBQ Chickpea Sloppy Joes
What about a vegan sloppy Joe? As you can see from the title, this recipe is designed with a slow-cooker in mind, having said that, it doesn’t take much imagination to create this without one.
Lots of flavorful ingredients make this plant-based alternative hit the mark with great accuracy! By the end of the meal you’ll be completely satisfied and maybe a little messy!
Beet Chickpea Burgers with Harissa Spread
If you want a burger for your carnivore friends, one that is incredibly satisfying and deep red, you can’t go much wrong with this.
The harissa spread just has 4 ingredients and is one of the tastiest I have ever had. This a serious burger!
BBQ Chickpea Walnut Burgers (Gluten-Free)
I don’t think I’ve ever had a burger that contained chickpeas and walnuts. The combination is outstanding and so are the flavors.
These burgers can be pan-fried or grilled. Add your favorite sauce, maybe some pickles, lettuce and a slice of tomato and you’re good to go.
Broccoli Cheeze Chickpea Burgers
An incredible recipe that creates cheesy patties thanks to the nutritional yeast.
Expect just over an hour prep time as you prepare and put everything together.
Serve on your favorite buns or sliced into quarters and throw in a huge salad. Either way you’re in for a treat.
Southwestern Black Bean Burgers
I love these burgers! Definitely a south-western feel and so much more than a bean burger. You have beets, herbs and spices and jalapenos.
Everything comes together in less than an hour. Serve in a bun and definitely with your favorite fries!
Mediterranean Chickpea Burgers (Gluten-Free)
The most amazing thing about this burger for me, is its lightness.
Sometimes you come across a recipe for a vegan burger where the ingredients are so packed tight that the patty becomes heavy, not just in weight but digestion as well. This is not the case here.
Everything from nutritional yeast to garlic creates this wonderful golden burger. Delicious.
Vegan Chickpea “Tuna” Sandwich
Is it impossible to achieve a tuna-like taste that is vegan? Well, maybe you’re never going to exactly hit the spot in terms of taste, however, try this out and see what you think.
Grab all the ingredients and pulse a few times in a food processor.
Serve in a lettuce wrap or your favorite bread. I think the lime and the capers make this special.
Stores in the refrigerator for a few days in an airtight container. A great sandwich filling.
Caesar Smashed Chickpea Sandwich
I really love this. If you love the flavor from caesar salad you need to check this out.
Ingredients are divided into two sections: the vegan caesar dressing and the sandwich filling.
The dressing would be great on salads. If you want a hearty and satisfying sandwich, you can’t go much wrong with this.

You could save yourself some time by using your favorite vegan sauces although I completely recommend making these, the barbecue is outstanding!
Spicy Miso Portobello Mushroom Burger
Here’s the deal with recipes for portobello mushroom burgers; as the mushroom lends itself well to being a burger, people don’t tend to do much else other than cook it. Not here, this is a deluxe sandwich.
The mushroom is cooked with great flavors, then make me slaw, guacamole and a salad. Put all that in a bun and you better be sitting down when it’s time to eat!
Protein-Packed Red Lentil Burger
In terms of price, this is probably the most economical recipe I have seen.

White Bean Buffalo Ranch Burger
I haven’t noticed many white bean burgers around, but I tell you, the ones I have seen have all been awesome and this is no exception.
Along with your white beans you have things like garlic, vegan parmesan and so much more. If this isn’t my favorite burger so far, I’m not sure what is.

Add the vegan mayo, ketchup, baby spinach and the all-important fresh lime juice, don’t be tempted to skip this as it brings everything together. Wonderful.
When you want to make something special, this is it, trust me. Just look at the photo of that sandwich. This will impress anyone.
Most people think sandwiches are convenience foods and that is certainly true. This takes it to the next level and reinvents the whole idea. Try it and you’ll know what I mean.
Golden Beet Burgers
A burger which is made from diced golden beets, chickpeas, brown rice and more. You only have to look at the photo to realize the quality of this recipe.
The secret ingredient for me is the teaspoon of ground mustard powder. It is ever so subtle and, in the background, yet it exists in every bite.
Sabich Sandwich with a Twist
I love messy sandwiches, lots of different ingredients, amazing sauce as well as vegan mayonnaise to bring all the flavors together.
Grab your favorite dill pickles, pitta bread and stuff it with everything!
Instead of egg this recipe uses white beans which are perfect adding that wonderful texture of theirs.
Have this for lunch and you’ll be full of energy for the rest of the day.
Oh my goodness, if you want a sandwich that has everything, look at that photo. Yours will end of looking exactly the same.
You create the meatballs from scratch using lentils, onion, mushrooms and a bunch of herbs and spices.
I urge you (I’ll even beg you!) to go to the effort of making everything else, the cooked onions, spinach and then add your favorite marinara sauce.
Get the best quality sub buns you can and then, simply, enjoy!
Mega Burger with Seitan
If you like meaty tasting burgers with everything, plant-based melted cheese, onions and a lot of mess, you need to check out this sandwich.
It looks awesome and yet comes together in just minutes.
Make sure you’re not wearing your favorite top because it will get messy. Napkins at the ready!
Hot Garlicky Broccoli Rabe Sandwich with Smoky Tahini Cheese Sauce
This sandwich is for you, the gooey cheese lover! The greens are prepared with garlic and the vegan tahini sauce is smoky!
Prepare all the ingredients and then sit down to enjoy. As delicious as this is, what I really took away from this recipe was the knowledge of how to make smoky tahini cheese sauce. It’s amazing and so simple.
Tofu Bánh Mi Sandwich with Lemongrass
Whether you’re into meatless Mondays or just trying to go more plant-based, check out this simple and healthy sandwich.
Wonderful herbs such as cilantro and lemongrass are a part of this great creation.
Add a dash of balsamic vinegar and you’re good to go. You probably have most of the ingredients already and anything you don’t have will be easy to source.
Spiced Chickpea, Carrot and Coriander Burgers
Okay so you have a friend coming out this weekend and you want to impress them. Don’t go out and buy the food, make it yourself with this great recipe.
You will need a blender or food processor to whizz all the ingredients until they are fairly smooth. Shape into burgers (amounts listed make 6) and then fry or bake.
Grab your favorite toppings and be prepared for your friend to want to visit again soon!
Onigirazu (Sushi Sandwich, Gluten-Free)
You can immediately see why this is in the ‘special picks’ section! This is like a giant sushi that has become a sandwich!
You don’t lose that oriental influence in this beautiful meal.
When I first saw the ingredients, I thought it would take hours to create, you’re looking at 30 minutes prep time and of course, you have to cook the rice (or sweet potato depending on what you choose, choose both!) Tasty, satisfying and looks phenomenal.
Spreads & Sauce Recipes
Killer Burger Sauce (3 Ingredients)
I know it’s super convenient to buy all our sauces from the store, but so often, we don’t really know where they are made or even how long ago!
This isn’t to mention the ingredients that sometimes contain dubious substances.
We may not care for ourselves, but when we have kids we need to think twice.
This burger sauce also makes for a great salad dressing I think. Just three ingredients and a little seasoning to taste, blend until the consistency becomes thick and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (this makes it even thicker).
Stores in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
Sometimes you want a great tasting sauce but without all the fat and calories. Check out this recipe.
If you love cucumber, then you just have to make this. Just a handful of ingredients and seasoning to taste creates this great creamy texture. Use as a dip or makes for a great salad dressing.
Best Vegan Tzatziki
Trying to find a vegan tzatziki can be like trying to climb Mount Everest. Then even if you find one, is it any good? This one is!
The base of this is cashews, soak them overnight before making this recipe.
Add the other ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and creamy (this may take a couple of minutes) and you’re good to go. Serve in your favorite sandwich or drizzle over falafel!
Basic Vegan Cheese Sauce
Just because the word ‘basic’ is in the title of this recipe, don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s of a low quality, it’s quite the opposite to say the least.
There’s about half a dozen ingredients in this (not including water) and it’s all real food.
The end-result is perfect for nachos, pasta dishes and just about anything you can think of.
If you and your family suffer from allergies, knowing all the ingredients is super important. No need to miss out on the fun stuff now!
Healthy Homemade Barbecue Sauce
Okay so I normally buy a barbecue sauce and never thought about making my own.
I checked the ingredients in my store-bought version and must admit there was one of two things in there that I would have preferred didn’t exist in the jar.
Now you can make your own using Dijon mustard, soy sauce and just a few other ingredients.
They say that food that you create at home tastes better and this is no exception. Even if you just make it for special occasions, keep this recipe because it’s impressive.
DIY Vegan Mayonnaise
I think everybody loves mayonnaise, it’s so versatile and great in sandwiches and on salads.
When I became vegan, I don’t think you could buy a plant-based version like you can nowadays. The trouble is, it can be so expensive!
Why not make your own with this simple recipe? Just four ingredients and five minutes later and you have this thick creamy mayo that’s just fantastic.
The author suggests that you may have to juggle with ingredients a few times to get the taste just how you like it so don’t give up straightaway. I promise you the end-product is more than worth it.
