Vegan roast carrot & aubergine sandwiches
  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 25 minutes
  • Total time: 35 minutes
  • Serves:2

    Ingredients

    350g Duchy Organic Carrots (about 5 medium carrots), trimmed and peeled
    1 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Organic Curry Powder
    1¾ tbsp olive oil
    ½ Duchy Organic Lemon, juice 
    1 aubergine, cut into 1cm rounds
    1 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Organic Whole Cumin Seeds
    4 tbsp dairy-free coconut milk natural yogurt alternative
    8 mint leaves, shredded
    4 slices Duchy Organic Wholemeal Seeded Bloomer
    Handful Duchy Organic Spinach leaves
    ½ Duchy Organic Avocado, sliced
    Handful salad cress

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C, gas mark 7. Cut the carrots into 1cm-thick diagonal slices and toss in a bowl with the curry powder, ½ tbsp oil and ½ the lemon juice. Spread out on a baking tray. In a bowl, toss the aubergine rounds with 1 tbsp oil then spread out on another roasting tray (or use a single large tray for both). Roast for 20-25 minutes, turning halfway, until starting to brown.

    2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining ¼ tbsp oil in a small frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the cumin seeds for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Stir into the coconut milk yogurt alternative along with the mint and remaining lemon juice; season.

    3. To build the sandwiches, lightly toast the bread and spread with a little coconut milk yogurt alternative. Layer up with the spinach, avocado and roasted vegetables, then spoon over the remaining yogurt alternative. Top with a handful of cress and finish with a final slice of toast. 

    Cook’s tip
    Some sliced pickled beetroot will add a little extra tang and colour to these sandwiches.
