I have always been a fan of Amy’s organic products. Now that there is a little chill to the air, the leaves are changing and Fall is definitely here I find myself craving warm, comforting meals. This soup definitely hits the spot! Thick, hearty and completely delicious this soup is vegan friendly and will leave you completely satisfied!
This sandwich is exactly what the title says – toasted tomato with hummus and kale! We were getting extremely low on groceries in the house the other day but I was determined to make use of the food we had left in the cupboards. I realized I had everything to make a toasted tomato sandwich – my Mom’s favourite after a long day of working and coming home to two hungry kids – but I’m not too keen on them. Then I got to thinking – I love hummus and cucumber sandwiches, what about hummus and tomatoes? Even better, I had a bunch of kale in the crisper! And that’s how I came up with this delicious sandwich!
- 2 slices of bread
- 4 slices of tomato
- A leaf of Kale
- Salt and pepper
- Toast your bread
- While toast is still warm from the toaster, spread your hummus on both pieces of toast
- Lay your four slices of tomato on one piece of toast with your kale leaf on top
- Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on top of the kale leaf (optional)
Voila! You have a tasty lunch in just minutes!
I don’t know what it is but sometimes I crave those old meat classics. I always liked the taste of meat but I can’t stand the thought of where it came from. It’s why I love making a Tofurky on special occasions or adding veg chicken to a jambalaya. Although I was never big on lunch meat, one day out of the blue it seemed to call to me. So instead of consuming something that went against my morals I built a vegan version instead. My husband loved me for it! He was a meat and potatoes kind of guy so I was shocked and delighted when he first decided to become vegetarian and then went on to be full vegan with me. That being said he loves when I make the vegan version of all of his old favourites like lasagne and Shepherd’s Pie. It’s great that the vegan section in grocery stores is forever growing. Years ago making something like this sandwich would have never been possible!
To make a Lunch “meat” Sammich:
- Whole wheat bread
- Tofurky deli slices (they come in a variety of flavours which I sometimes mix together)
- Tofutti cheese slices
- And toppings of your choice – mustard, relish, pickles etc.
I’m going to assume you know how to put together a sandwich – if I walk you through it I’d feel like I was making fun of you!
We don’t make these all of the time – after all everything that goes in to them is heavily processed – but they’re a great way to satisfy a craving and stay plant friendly!
