Of course, if you don’t feel like making your own bread you can try some store bought keto bread or paleo bread. I love Bakeworks in New Zealand.  They have a large range of good for you bread including keto one !  I love pesto in sandwiches, and while store-bought pesto spread are not paleo -it contains dairy – my homemade cashew Kale pesto recipe is 100% dairy free. It is a simple and delicious creamy pesto with no cheese. You probably have all the ingredients on hand to make a batch of this pesto. I love to use the leftover in zucchini pasta or on any salads. All you need is few healthy ingredients: basil, cashews, garlic, kale and olive oil. But back to this vegetarian pesto sandwich fillings.

I loaded my sandwich with 5 green vegetable. I spread the kale pesto on both bread slices then added avocado slices, baby spinach, thin zucchini ribbon, crunchy cos lettuce and that is it ! Well, I did add a drizzle of my coconut oil mayonnaise but that is very optional.

It is a delicious fresh vegetarian pesto sandwich. The bread contains eggs so it is a very fulfilling sandwich that contains all the proteins, fibre and healthy fat you need for your lunch. If you are on a paleo diet and you miss bread, I highly recommend this vegetarian pesto sandwich with my Keto bread loaf | Almond flour bread recipe. Enjoy this simple vegetarian keto sandwich recipe.
