3 Colour Gluten Free Plant Based Sandwich

Who doesn’t love a great sandwich? One of the most common challenges I see people struggling with when they go gluten free, is missing a good sandwich. I can use a great gluten free bread in so many ways, and sandwiches do make for complete meals. It depends on what goes into them.

Sandwiches are a great way to get healthy colourful vegetables into your diet. It’s a great way to get your kids to have better meals. That was the reason that I went through so many experiments before getting a gluten free bread that was worthy of being transformed into a great sandwich. 

Most sandwiches in restaurants and takeaways are loaded with preservatives and toxic ingredients. On the face of it, they all appear to be healthy meals.

Look deeper, and you’ll find bread that has been made to last longer, cheese that has been processed to be stringy, and preservatives and sugars in their sauces. Did you know that a barbecue sauce can have loads of sugar? 

This is a great plant based gluten free sandwich recipe. It has my Citrus Amaranth Lentil Bread, which you can find here. The lentils are soaked for many hours to release the phytates. The bread slices beautifully and can be toasted until very crisp. This is the great base for this sandwich.

3 Colour Gluten Free Plant Based Sandwich With Dairy Free Cashew Chilly Garlic Cilantro Herbed Cheese:

The punch of flavour in this gluten free plant based sandwich comes from this dairy free cashew chilly garlic cilantro herbed cheese. It is zesty with fresh lemon juice, spicy with green chillies and garlic, and creamy with the cashews and olive oil. I usually make a whole bottle of it and it lasts us a few days. It also makes meals super simple. 

In this great plant based gluten free sandwich recipe, I have used fresh crisp lettuce, sliced carrots and tomatoes. My husband adds jalapeños and peppers.

You can use sliced beets, different colour peppers, cucmbers, onions, roast sweet potatoes or pan fried aubergine. Just try and include a few colours and keep them fresh. If you like roast sweet potatoes, try this salad with kale as well!

Once you make the bread, and have this spread ready, your whole week can be super simple. You can go about a hectic day, and have fresh healthy meals, devoid of toxic preservatives and additives. Just eating fresh, can be potently powerful in helping your health overall.

As you keep seeing all my recipes, I have three stars of the show, in this case, it’s kale, sweet potato and sesame. Remember my mantra, which is enjoy food from concept to creation to consumption!

I prefer to slow roast my sesame seeds and make the dressing rather than use a bottled tahini. I find the flavour much better and it’s absolutely fresh!

Let’s breakdown the ingredients of this 3 Colour Gluten Free Plant Based Sandwich With Dairy Free Cashew Chilly Garlic Cilantro Herbed Cheese:

Lettuce– If you can get bitter leafy greens like arugula or the purple lettuce, thay are wonderful for liver health. Eating them can be helpful for satiety, methylation and fibre. Leafy greens are rich in nutrients that support cardiovascular health. Think of the veins on the leaves that resemble your arteries and veins.

Carrots–Carrots are rich in betacarotene which support a healthy reproductive system. While they are high in sugar, they are so rich in fibre that they do not trigger blood sugar imbalance. 

Dairy free spread–One of the most toxic ingredients in sandwiches everywhere is cheese. Dairy cheese causes congestion in the lymphatic system leading to a whole load of symptoms. This spread has magensium rich cashews, enzyme rich lemons, antimicrobial garlic, liver supportive cilantro and himalayan salt. You might also like these dairy free cheese recipes

Prep Time 1 hr
Course Breads, Main Course, Sandwich
Cuisine Eclectic Indo Mediterranean, Gluten Free
Servings 2 sandwiches


  • Mixer


  • 4 slices Citrus Amaranth Lentil Bread I have not included the time of making the bread. You can find the recipe by clicking the link on this blog
  • 1/4 cup Cashew
  • 4 pods Garlic
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 4 Lemons
  • 1 cup Cilantro Leaves
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 large Carrot
  • 1 Tomato
  • 4 leaves Crisp Lettuce
  • Salt
  • Cracked Pepper


  • Soak the cashews for half an hour in hot water. Blend the soaked cashews with green chillies, garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and little water to make a creamy dairy free spread. Add water slowly to guage the consistency. It should be like a herbed cream cheese.
  • Toast four slices of the citrus amaranth lentil bread in a toaster or on a cast iron pan. If you are using a pan, keep it on low and let it crispen slowly. It is a moist bread which requires gentle toasting to make it crunchy.
  • Slice the carrots into thin slices. Do the same with the tomatoes. Spread half the dairy free cream cheese on one toast. Layer two lettuce leaves, sliced carrots, tomatoes and cracked pepper. Cover with one toast and serve fresh. Do the same for the other sandwich.

Truth is tricky. It’s so easy to try a new diet or protocol and slip into denial over symptoms that arise. A classic version of this is missing a period after intermittent fasting but trying to ignore it. For a woman your cycle is as vital in information as a lab test!⁣


Have you tried a new diet or protocol and ever convinced yourself that it’s working for you just because you’ve lost a lot of weight? Weight loss has become the highest parameter of efficacy even when there is chaos happening within which can include and not limited to:⁣

💛Frequent headaches ⁣

☸️Dysfunctional cycle⁣

💮Low iron or B12 within few months⁣

💜Frequent fevers and coughs⁣

💛Bad skin⁣

☸️Poor quality of sleep even if you are sleeping nine hours⁣

💮Mood fluctuation that includes anger, sadness and overwhelm⁣


Weight loss should not be enough if all this is happening as well. Health should come before anything else.⁣

Fasting is great! But I’m seeing a lot of people who are unable to get benefits from this ancient practice. My guess is that this has a lot to do with sequence, present diet, level of stress and what’s happening within their body.⁣


Some of the indications that the specific fasting approach you are following is not working for you are:⁣

💙Feeling more stressed and having poor resilience to stressors around you. This can include feeling weepy, angry or overwhelmed.⁣

💙Struggling with fatigue and forcing yourself to get through the fasting period irrespective of tiredness, dizziness or giddy.⁣

💙One of the greatest signs of impact is struggling with sleep. This can include inability to stay asleep and not being able to stay asleep for enough time.⁣

💙Not getting a period when you have always had a perfect cycle is a huge red flag. If your body thinks that it’s a state of emergency it shuts off reproductive function and you can miss ovulation and menstruation. I’ve actually heard women say they are happy about missing a cycle but this is really dangerous!⁣


Does this mean fasting is not good? Far from it! I call the fasting approach that I use in practice as Strategic Fasting. This refers to using fasting techniques in specific ways at specific times with specific foods in the feeding window. It can be immensely therapeutic provided you bring it in correctly. ⁣

It’s so strange that so many women do not place stress as the greatest root cause of all their menstruated challenges. One episode of high stress can wreak havoc on your hormones and impact the flow of your cycle. This is why you’ll have an early period, a later period, no period or a heavy period after you’ve had an argument with someone or a bad day at work.⁣


🌸The reason for this is that your body takes cholesterol and produces both cortisol which is the stress hormone and progesterone which is your sex hormone. ⁣

🌺When your body thinks that it is a state of emergency then it shuts off non essential functions including the production of sex hormones. ⁣

🌸Instead it prioritises the production of your stress hormone cortisol. ⁣

🌺This means you can go a whole cycle without ovulation or making progesterone.⁣

🌸This makes you stressed, anxious, unable to sleep, overwhelmed, depressed and a whole lot more!⁣


Women’s health and women’s bodies are beautiful spaces where there is harmony deep within. Your body just tries to help you when something is off. The beauty is that you can bring everything back on track with the right steps in the right sequence. If you want to guide your health back to harmony, reach out!⁣
