Thai Peanut Veggie Sandwiches


Have you figured out yet how much I love Thai peanut sauce? I actually adore almost all Asian-style sauces, but this is the one that I crave most. However, I had never before thought to try it on veggie sandwiches.

Easy Thai Peanut Veggie Sandwiches Recipe (Vegan, Dairy-Free & optionally Gluten-Free)This recipe with photo for Thai peanut veggie sandwiches (or “sammies”) was shared with us by the Southern Peanut Growers.

This fun formula for Thai peanut veggie sandwiches was a winner in the annual “PB My Way” recipe contest. And I definitely wasn’t surprised. It utilizes loads of crisp vegetables that are pretty much available year round. Plus it’s topped with a rich, creamy, 5-minute spicy peanut sauce!

These veggie sandwiches are perfect for a Meatless Monday meal, and are quite light, with the peanut butter providing most of the protein and fat. But if you want to “beef” them up, add your favorite baked tofu or tempeh. Either will go deliciously with this fresh combination.

  3. I used to ask for a side of peanut sauce at thai restaurants, no matter what my entree was. I just eat it straight.
