Are you convinced that bread is an indispensable part of a sandwich? Understandable. In general, a sandwich also consists mainly of bread. But it’s not necessary!
These fifteen examples prove that you can make divine sandwiches from vegetables, meat… Um, what not? All recipes are low carb and often gluten free. Handy for anyone who wants to eat less carbohydrates or gluten or for people with allergies.
1. Steak and Eggplant Sandwich with Smoked Jalapeño Chili Pepper
For this ‘sandwich’ of juicy steak and aubergine, you will undoubtedly want to give up your double sandwich. Believe us.
2. Eggplant and creamy sweet potato vegetable towers with fresh yogurt-mint sauce
Almost a shame to eat these beautiful vegetable towers. Nice to stack and then dip in the fresh yogurt-mint sauce.
3. Sweet potato and thyme cheese towers
Sweet potato, a little cream and (lots!) of melted manchego cheese: need we say more ? Come on, this is not the healthiest lunch in the list, but perhaps one of the tastiest. To pamper yourself with.
4. Apple slices with peanut butter and pieces of chocolate
It remains a golden combination: apple with peanut butter. You don’t need a recipe for this, just cut an apple into thick slices and cover one slice with a thick layer of peanut butter and some finely chopped chocolate. Place the other disc on top. Yum!
5. Asparagus caprese sandwich salad
Mozzarella, asparagus, fresh basil, sweet tomatoes and a good dash of balsamic vinegar: whoever misses the bread here…
6. Vegetarian tower of portobello, eggplant, grilled tofu and mint
A delicious veggie lunch: marinated zucchini, eggplant, portobello and tofu. Extra tasty with some balsamic vinegar.
7. Glasses with the content (!) of a sandwich
Admit it: the most delicious element of a sandwich is really just the toppings, isn’t it? Try making these cute glasses with everything you would normally put on your bread, but without the bread itself. Nice for a high tea or a party, for example.
8. Low carb ‘sandwich’ of fried tofu with ham and cucumber
Do you not want to eat too many carbohydrates but still want a lunch with a nice bite? Then replace your sandwich with slices of fried tofu. At least as tasty and healthy and you can vary endlessly with the toppings.
9. Banana and Nutella turrets
Fancy a sweet, delicious snack or – if you really want to spoil yourself – lunch? Layer banana slices and a generous layer of Nutella: divinely delicious!
10. Portobello sandwich with sweet potato chips
A mushroom burger but the other way around: with the portobello on the outside. Super tasty because of the chicken, guacamole and mushroom. With the sweet potato chips as an extra. To die for !
11. Bell pepper sandwich with avocado, turkey and seaweed
A bell pepper also serves as a great substitute for bread. Nice and sweet and crunchy and you can completely adjust the content to what you like.
12. Italian ham and salami wrap
The ultimate lunch for real meat lovers: replace your wheat or corn flour wrap for slices of meat! Easy to roll up and, wrapped in foil or paper, also handy to take with you.
13. Cucumber Sandwiches with Roast Beef, Tomato, Carrot and Lettuce
You can replace bread for just about anything, for example, consider a piece of hollowed-out cucumber. You can enjoy these ‘sandwiches’ without feeling guilty. Perfect as a delicious fresh and light lunch.
14. Skinny Mediterranean lettuce wrap with chicken & tomato
With only 350 calories per serving, this is the perfect light lunch. Why use a taco or wrap when it tastes just as good with a lettuce leaf? It’s about the content!
