Stuck in a sandwich-making rut? Try something different by adding bean spread to your next sandwich. Bean spread can act as a condiment on your favorite sandwich, replacing boring old mayonnaise and mustard while adding a shot of flavor and protein. Bean spread can also stand on its own in sandwiches as the main protein. This is especially great for vegan or vegetarian sandwiches, or for people just looking for something new for their lunchboxes.
Keep this collection of vegan bean spread recipes on hand and easily transform any sandwich into something special.
