Vegetarian: Smoky BBQ mushroom buns

Inspired by the wildly popular American pulled pork sandwich, this BBQ mushroom bun gets its meaty might from a large flat mushroom, marinated in a smoky barbecue-style sauce. Topped with a crunchy carrot and cabbage slaw, even committed carnivores won’t miss the meat in this summery sandwich.

Low carb: Spicy pork and lettuce cups

Eating low carb doesn’t have to mean endless steaks and salads: achieve the sensation of tucking into a sarnie by swapping bread for lettuce, wrapped around a satisfying filling.

Vegan: Open radish sandwich with herby nut butter

Meat and dairy substitutes, step aside. Bursting with spring flavour, the ‘nut butter’ in this sandwich takes centre stage. Packed with fresh herbs and creamy cashew nuts, the spread would go well with just about anything you fancy, but we’re keen to pair it with in-season crunchy radishes.
