This Plant-Based Ploughman’s Sandwich Is A Vegan Dream

by | Oct 9, 2023 | Recipes

When transitioning over to a plant-based diet, you might really miss one thing: cheese. Luckily, plant-based cheese options abound. What’s more, this recipe delivers those cravings in the form of a plant-based ploughman’s sandwich that you’ll dream of.

A ploughman’s sandwich is a rustic meal which includes a hunk of cheese on crusty bread, sweetened with a sauce and soured slightly with something pickled. This plant-based version delivers that.

For this recipe, you’ll be using two types of Fairview plant-based cheeses. And, the mature flavours are so present that you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re eating the real thing. Layers of Fairview cream cheese and Fairview mature cheddar accompany streams of sweet chutney, making this an all-around treat.

Finally, this sandwich contains a healthy dose of baby marrow, crisp green apple and baby spinach, delivering crucial minerals and vitamins, key for good heart health and brain function.
