Vegan “Chicken“ Sandwich with Cucumber-Mint Salad

If I had to put together the sandwich of my dreams, I'd probably end up with this exact recipe: a fresh baguette, a creamy dip with mint and basil, crispy vegan chicken, and a refreshing cucumber-mint salad! Forget limp bread, soft patties, ketchup, mustard, and uncharitable toppings, because this sandwich proves to you that even a sandwich for lunch can be wonderfully refreshing, filling, and anything but boring!

We made two large baguettes and cut each in half to serve. This creates either an excellent snack for four people or a filling meal for two very, very hungry people. Instead of a baguette, you can also use a ciabatta, a roll, or other bread for your sandwich. The filling is made of a fresh cucumber and mint salad and creamy vegan yogurt cream. To this, we added fresh radishes, sun-dried tomatoes, and crispy vegan chicken.

We breaded the vegan chicken with Oat Flakes from barnhouse, which makes them incredibly crunchy. barnhouse is a pioneer in making crunchy organic mueslis based in Bavaria. If you're thinking of just regular oats when you think of the Oat Flakes, you're definitely wrong! The oat grains are rolled in the traditional way to flakes and additionally roasted so that they're crunchy at the end. No oil or sugar is added so that the oat flakes consist of 100% pure oats - and of course, they are organic too! If you don't want to bread a plant-based chicken right now, you can also use the flakes as a topping - Julia, for example, always sprinkles them on her vegan yogurt-fruit bowl for breakfast. You can find barnhouse products in organic markets or directly in their online store.

  5. For the plant-based yogurt cream, pluck mint leaves from the stem and wash them together with basil. Puree both together with plant-based natural yogurt and also season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

  6. Wash and chop the lettuce and radishes. Slice the baguettes, spread with the plant-based yogurt cream, top with lettuce, sun-dried tomatoes, the crispy vegan chicken, cucumber-mint salad, and radishes.
