The type of bread you choose can make or break a sandwich. After all, the bread is such a large component of the meal, holding together all of the delicious ingredients in between. There’s a huge difference between using warm, freshly-baked bread and a couple slices from a store-bought loaf. To take your meal to a new level, try one of these 10 homemade breads that will transform your favorite sandwich:
1. Ooh La La Gluten-Free French Bread
French bread, when it’s warm, is deliciously crunchy on the outside with a soft center. Try it on your sandwich of tempeh or maybe some vegan chicken salad or vegan egg salad. Try this Vegan ‘Egg Mayonaise’ (Eggless Egg Salad) Sandwich. Also, the best part is, this recipe is gluten-free!
2. Onion Corn Bread
This onion corn bread is a creative, different take on sandwich bread. It’s a cool way to enjoy your favorite sandwich with a new twist and no gluten.
3. Pretzel Roll Bagels
Pretzel Rolls jazz up a sandwich, and if you use a Vegveeta cheese sauce, it’s like enjoying pretzel sticks dunked in nacho cheese. Load it up with veggies and some tempeh or tofu.
4. Whole-Wheat Garlic and Herb Vegan Sandwich Buns
For these garlic and herb buns, you’ll need warm water, active yeast, sugar, whole wheat flour, bread flour, salt, garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary.
5. Walnut Bread With Sun-dried Tomatoes and Roasted Garlic
You can make delicious, artisanal bread right at home with this recipe. The sun-dried tomatoes and roasted garlic give this bread a savory, hearty taste. Try using this bread to make a grilled-cheese.
6. Whole Wheat Sourdough Ciabatta
For this delicious bread, you’ll need whole wheat durum flour in addition to sourdough. When done, the bread has a not-too-crispy outside and a warm, soft center. Use it for a Vegan Mock Tuna Salad sandwich.
7. Chipotle Chile Pepper Rolls
Try using these rolls to add a nice kick to some homemade Vegan Sloppy Joes. They’re perfectly spicy due to the paprika, chile powder, chipotle chili peppers in adobo and the sun-dried tomatoes.
