Tomato sandwiches are a summer staple in the South. A twist on the classic – these easy open-faced sandwiches are topped with juicy roasted tomatoes and a vegan lemon, garlic, and mayo spread.
What’s a tomato sandwich?
Tomato sandwiches are a Southern staple during the summer months. They’re classically made with white sandwich bread (nothing fancy), thick slices of tomato, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper.
What do I need to make this recipe?
You’ll need a large tomato, olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, vegan mayo, lemon juice, a clove of garlic, and sliced bread.
What kind if tomato should I use?
Large slicer varieties like beefsteak tomatoes work best in this recipe.
Which kind of vegan mayo should I use?
My favorite vegan mayo brands are Follow Your Heart, Just Mayo, and Hellmann’s (I believe they label it as ‘vegan dressing and spread’ now).
How to make these vegan roasted tomato sandwiches
1.) Preheat your oven to 350F.
2.) Lay out slices of tomato on a parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Lightly sprinkle with salt & pepper. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
