This Vegan Picnic Spread Is Summer Approved

You only need one baguette to make this vegan spread, which features four delicious plant-based sandwiches.

Make the perfect vegan picnic basket with this summer-approved spread.

This easy-to-make plant-based recipe features four mouthwatering sandwiches: a chickpea tuna salad sandwich, a tofu egg salad sandwich, a vegan club sandwich,  and a vegan Caprese salad sandwich.

And you only need one baguette to make all four sandwiches! The sandwich quarter features a chickpea tuna salad (you can whip your own up using this recipe), cucumber, and red onion. The second quarter has butter lettuce, tofu egg salad (try this recipe), and sprouts. 

The third section contains vegan mayonnaise, butter lettuce, vegan cheddar cheese and meatless turkey, tomato, and avocado. And the last quarter—the vegan caprese salad sandwich—features dairy-free mozzarella cheese, tomato, balsamic glaze, extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, and fresh basil.  

And what would a picnic spread be without dessert? Whip up a simple, yet delicious, strawberry shortcake dessert, which features vegan vanilla cupcakes. The strawberry cream treat in a jar is easy to take on the go, making it the perfect afternoon sweet for any picnic.
