Introducing: peta2 Sandwich of the Week!

Let me set the scene: Your school’s vegan options suck—between french fries, iceberg lettuce and potato chips, you’re getting a little fed up. You’re gathering petitions to get more veg options, and talking to your lunch ladies about serving up some real food, but that’s all taking a bit of time. What can you do for lunch right now?

peta2’s got you covered. Every week we’re going to be comin’ up with something creative, but easy to put together, find ingredients for, and obviously easy to eat, for you to bring to lunch! These should make for happy stomachs, and good outreach because while your corpse munching friends are digging into their mystery meat, you’ll have food that was tested out by vegan food experts. Trust us—we know vegan food!

I’m starting the blog out with some of my favorite things thrown together:

  • Tofurky (any variety will do—I love original, and the new “cranberry and stuffing,” pictured here!).
  • Sesame tahini hummus—OK, if you haven’t had hummus yet, and you’re veg, get to it! Hummus can go on pretty much anything and make it amazing. Example? This sandwich. It can be a main dish, a side dish, a dip, or a spread. It’s essential!
  • Mustard, lettuce, sprouts, bread—these are self explanatory. I love mustard, in fact, some have said I have a small obsession. And I love sprouts. If you don’t, leave ’em off! Vegan mayo is also an acceptable condiment for this (again, if you don’t have vegan mayo in your life, WTF?).

So where do you get this stuff? Cody and I took a quick trip to Trader Joe’s last night, but you can find this stuff at any small (or large) health food store in your area. Obviously, sprouts, lettuce, and mustard can be found at any grocery store—and chances are, you already have most of those in the fridge. Tofurky is great because it’s super cheap, and is my favorite faux meat of all time—and it’s got some pretty fierce competition. You can usually find Tofurky slices and hummus in stores for less than $5 each—so whether you’re spending your own money, or asking your parents to shell it out for you, it shouldn’t be too big of a deal.

Let us know if you try this and love it! And feel free to send us suggestions at peta2@peta2.com—if there’s something you’d like us to try out, or a sandwich you love to make, let us know!

Stay loud!
-Rachel

    But, isn’t quesadilla made of cow’s milk???? If you’re vegan, my dear, you wouldn’t even try something coming from dairy products.
    By the way, I’m just learning to be vegan.

    Thanks, it looks good. I’m always looking for new lunch ideas for my kids. They are always complaining that there is nothing at school that they can eat so we are trying and get creative with what they take. Looking forward to future lunch ideas!!!

    To make a change from having this in a sandwich, you could use a soft tortilla wrap instead!

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
