Fall into this Vegan Harvest Sandwich
It’s time for some cozy comfort food! What better way to enjoy the flavors of fall than with a hearty vegan harvest sandwich? This sandwich is packed with roasted squash, apples, kale, and fresh cranberries, all nestled between two slices of sourdough bread. Yum!
1. Roasted Squash
Let’s start with the roasted squash. You’ll need one small roasted squash, which you can either buy pre-roasted or roast yourself. If you’re roasting it yourself, start by preheating your oven to 375F. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Rub the flesh of the squash with olive oil and sprinkle on some salt. Place the squash halves cut side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until they are fork-tender. Once they’re done, let them cool before adding them to your sandwich.
For the apples, you’ll need one large apple that’s been cored and thinly sliced. I like to use Granny Smith apples because they’re tart and have a nice firm texture, but you can use any type of apple you like. When slicing the apples, be sure to slice them horizontally so that they lay flat on the bread. This will make your sandwich less likely to fall apart when you take a bite.
Next up is the kale! You’ll need about ½ cup of chopped kale for this sandwich. I like to use Tuscan kale because it has a nice peppery flavor, but feel free to use whatever type of kale you like best. Massage the kale with a little bit of olive oil to soften it up before adding it to your sandwich. This will make it less likely to tear your bread when you take a bite.
And last but not least are the cranberries! Fresh cranberries are in season in the fall, so this is the perfect time to add them to your sandwich. You’ll need about ¼ cup of fresh cranberries for this recipe. If you can’t find fresh cranberries, you can also use dried cranberries. Either way, they’ll add a lovely sweetness and pop of color to your sandwich.
4. Putting It All Together
Now that you have all of your ingredients prepared, it’s time to assemble your sandwich! Start by spreading some vegan mayo on one slice of bread. Top with roasted squash, apples, kale, cranberries, and a few more sprigs of parsley (optional). Spread some more mayo on the other slice of bread and place it on top of your sandwich. Slice in half and enjoy!
