Oh my goodness! This meal is so delicious! It is quick and makes a perfect lunch or meal anytime of day!
A few special ingredients went into making this sandwich:
- Artisan Italian Round Bread from Le Brea Bakery is made with a special sourdough starter they proof the bread dough with for at least 24 hours before baking. The result is a bread that is soft with a delicate texture and flavor, and the crust is golden brown and crunchy. This bread is perfect for savory sandwiches and sweet delights. In this picture, my family has already eaten half the loaf.
- Broccoli Sprouts are one of the most nutritious foods available. Other sprouts such as alfalfa, are jam packed with nutrition too. You can buy sprouts in most grocery stores or sprout the seeds yourself right on your kitchen counter. I will share more about methods for sprouting your own nutritious greens such as broccoli, alfalfa, sunflower seeds, wheat, nuts, mixed seeds, and more in a future story.
- Vegenaise is absolutely delicious! Vegenaise is Non-GMO, Gluten Free, and Egg-Free. I am not sure what other brands of egg-free Mayo are out there, but this one is easily available at finer grocery stores. I would like to find an egg-free mayo also made without soy, but so far, this is the only egg-free brand I have tried so far and I am thrilled with the flavor.
Vegenaise and is made with canola oil, lemon juice, mustard powder, apple cider vinegar, brown rice syrup, soy protein, and sea salt. It comes out smooth and creamy and really does taste better than traditional mayonnaise.
- Artisan Italian Round Bread
- Turkey breast, oven roasted
- Romaine Lettuce leaf
- Broccoli Sprouts
- Avacodo 1/2 cut into slices
Use 2 slices of bread, or 1 slice cut in half, and toast if desired. Spread 1 tablespoon of Veganase onto bread.
Add sliced Turkey breast. You could use store bought deli meat, or use your leftover Turkey from your recent holiday meals. Then top with romaine lettuce, avocado, and broccoli sprouts (or alfalfa sprouts, or sandwich sprout mix of your choice). You could also add in other options like a slice of tomato, or red onion if desired.
I pared this delicious sandwich with cut up fresh veggies of red bell pepper, celery, carrots, sliced avocado, and yellow cherry tomatoes.
