Mini sandwich bites with vegan salmon & tuna

Mini sandwich bites are definitely all-time favorites for buffets! If you think, they won't work out for vegans, you're absolutely wrong! We show you two recipes, even omnivorous people will love - sandwich bites with vegan carrot lox and tuna cream. Just schedule enough time to build you small sandwich towers - this takes more time than you initially think you will need. The rest of it is pretty easy!

Vegan sandwich bites with tuna cream

about 30 sandwich bites
30 minutes


  • 8 slices of toast
  • 2 red onions
  • 20 g (0.7 oz) cress
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) salad

tuna cream

  • 1/2 shallot
  • 125 g (4.4 oz) chickpeas
  • 1/2 stick of celery
  • 5 gherkins
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1/2 nori leaf
  • 75 g (2.6 oz) vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 7 g (0.2 oz) dill
  • salt&pepper


  1. Roughly cut cucumber, gherkins, celery, and shallot.
  2. In a mixer or food processor, add chopped veggies and chickpeas and let them mix 2 or 3 times shortly in order to get them minced, but not too minced. There still should be some chunks in it, so don't let them mix for too long.
  3. Put everything in a large bowl and add vegan mayo, mustard and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Finely chop dill and cut a nori sheet. This will work best if you roll your nori sheet first and slice it. Stir in both into your tuna cream.
  5. Remove crust from white bread slices and cut into 4 small squares.
  6. Wash, slice and prepare tomatoes, salad, red onion, and cress.
  7. Top square with tuna cream and veggies and top with another toast square. Fix with a toothpick.
