Classic club sandwiches are meat-laden, mayonnaise-slathered, three-layer creations that contain enough fat and calories for an entire day. Here, veg fillings and a creamy arugula spread lighten the fat and calories without compromising flavor.

  • 4Servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup vegan dressing/sandwich spread, such as Follow Your Heart Vegenaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped arugula
  • 12 slices toasted whole-wheat sourdough bread, divided
  • 1 cup radish sprouts
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced 1/2-inch thick (8 slices)
  • 8 slices meatless low-fat bacon strips, cooked
  • 1 avocado, peeled, halved, and sliced
  • 12 slices meatless deli-style smoked chicken

Preparation

1. Combine sandwich spread and arugula in medium bowl. Spread on 4 slices toasted bread.

2. Divide radish sprouts over sandwich spread. Top each with 1 tomato slice and 2 bacon strips. Add a second layer of toast to each sandwich, and top each with 1 more tomato slice, then avocado and smoked chicken. Spread remaining sandwich spread over remaining 4 toast slices, and place over chicken. Secure sandwiches with decorative toothpicks, and cut into 4 triangles.
