What you need



  • 2 Turkish bread rolls
  • ½ green apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup rocket
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 cup bean sprouts 
  • ½ Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced 
  • 1 cup iceberg lettuce (keep them in whole pieces)

Green Sauce

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice 
  • 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp. vegan mayo
  • 1 tbsp. capers
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup basil leaves
  • ½ cup fresh dill
  • ½ cup spring onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • Pepper, to taste


  • 2 tbsp. chilli jam or pickled chilli (basically any form of spice that tickles your fancy)


Step 1

To make the green sauce, pop all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until smooth. 

Step 2

Slice your Turkish bread rolls in half, and toast them. If you have the time, we recommend toasting in a frypan with a little olive oil. 

Step 3

Lather a generous amount (a few tablespoons) of the green sauce to both sides of the toasted bread on each sandwich. This will be the seasoning for all the ingredients, so be a little heavy handed. 

Step 4

Layer half the ingredients on one side of each sandwich. There is no correct order, so do as you wish!

Step 5

Close your sandwich and enjoy!


  • Extras: This sandwich is absolutely delicious as is, but if you (like us) start to eat this so often that you want to mix it up, here are a few things we have found work amazingly! 
    • Cheddar cheese (or the vegan alternative) offers a fatty, saltiness that compliments this sandwich well. 
    • Chilli jam offers a spice + sweet kick. 
    • A few anchovies add some extra salt and umami. 
    • Protein! This also works well with tempeh, tofu, chicken, ham, salami or eggs!
