Burgers get all the glory—and we can’t really dispute their ability to always crush our biggest cravings—but now, there’s a new flavour train rolling into our kitchen: the bunwich. This slightly-lighter underdog cousin of the big bad burger hits the sweet spot between satisfied and stuffed. Here are five of our faves we put together on our delicious Millet & Chia buns.
Grilled Veggie Bunwich
Dig into Mediterranean flavors. We layered roasted zucchini, peppers, eggplant, and shallots on our fluffy gluten-free buns and let some of our favourite Miyoko’s cheese melt over the veggies for a chewy, melty combo.
Pulled Jackfruit and ‘Slaw Bunwich
The pull-apart texture of jackfruit makes for an awesome sandwich. Tossed in BBQ sauce, topped with crunch coleslaw, and layered on a bed of lettuce with mayo on our buns—even better.
This mushroom melt is succulent and super-savoury. The Portobello texture is great for when you’re wanting something a little more substantial. Caramelized onions and plant-based cheese make this melt magic.
When all you can think about is a food-cart falafel wrap, trade up for this healthy alternative. Fresh spinach baked falafel balls plus creamy curried hummus make this sammy earthy and satisfying.
Pea shoots, avocado, and vegan tartar sauce are layered under and over a hearty plant-based slice of battered tempeh. You can thank Lauren Toyota (aka @hotforfood) for this spin on a childhood favourite.
