If you're in a sandwich rut, this Vegan Avocado Pesto Caprese Sandwich is for you! It's a great way to switch up your sandwich routine.
This vegan sandwich is easy to make and it travels well, making it a perfect brown bag lunch.
First you make the avocado basil pesto by mixing avocado, nutritional yeast, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt in a food processor.
The video below shows how to make the pesto.
Spread the avocado basil pesto on toasted focaccia or your favorite bread, and layer fresh basil, tomato, and vegan mozzarella on top.
I used roasted garlic focaccia for this sandwich. It's really easy to make, especially since I used pizza mix.
It can be made the day before, or you can mix the dough and let it sit in the fridge overnight and bake it the next day.
How Long Does It Last?
This Avocado Basil Pesto will last 3-5 days in the fridge. I actually had mine a little longer and it tasted great, but I like to give the range for the best time to eat it.
Since it will turn brown from oxidization, mix it well when eating leftovers. This will bring forth the greener parts underneath to the forefront.
