Well, do you also see these bright orange pumpkins everywhere now? How beautiful! So we immediately had to come up with a vegan pumpkin sandwich. This is prepared super fast, easy and still tastes wonderful like autumn.
For the pumpkin sandwich we use hokkaido. You can get it almost everywhere, at least here in Germany. You can also eat the skin. That means less work. We like. You probably also do. We cut the pumpkin into thin slices, pull them through oil and a few spices and finally cook the pumpkin for 20 minutes in the oven. Easy peasy.
The baked Hokkaido is paired with two other very autumnal ingredients, lamb’s lettuce and lingonberry jam. Vegan cream cheese and dried tomatoes complete the sandwich pleasure. Yes, so fast and easy can a special, delicious and of course vegan sandwich be prepared. Have a try!
