Crunchy Mash Sandwich/Salad

Thank you Laama for the inspiration. This recipe is adapted from a sandwich from heaven made with absolute love by one of the most creative people I know. Laama, khiazein.films

Thank you for all the love, inspiration, and your continuous support. Love you.


Alrrighhhttt. Enough vegan cheesy talk. Let's get into the recipe. This is with no comparison my all time favorite sandwich. It's full of flavor, texture, and love. Yes, a little bit of vegan cheese if I may.

It got all the flavors on the spectrum. The texture is mushy with a surprise crunch from the almonds here and there. It has it all. I dare say it's perfect. 

Add avocados to it if you wish. It's already so good without, but avocados are good in any sandwich, so why not.
