When I tasted the vegan chicken sandwich, I couldn’t believe how good it was. You can really make an easy, cheap and healthy alternative to a chicken sandwich.
I have been following the youtuber High Carb Hannah for a while. I really enjoy her videos and her lifestyle inspires me. I am not vegan like her – but her less meat and more carbs have inspired me in my own weight loss journey with great success.
So when I came across her video of the “fake chicken sandwich” I just knew I had to give it a go. (See her video of making the sandwich below).
I slighty changed the recipe a bit.
Instead of ground flax, I soaked flax seeds.
Also I used different spices.
The sandwich is amazing. It tastes really really good. It is really easy to make.
When the teenager saw it on the mealplan, where I called it “the fake chicken sandwich” he was instantly entriqued.
However, if I had told him it was a patty made from cauliflower he would probably not eat it so enthusiastically.
So I told him that it was a sandwich that was made of fake chicken. So not chicken but it would taste kind of like chicken.
I made the patty one afternoon, before Theis and I went to a meeting and dinnertime would be well overdue by the time we got home to the teenager. Usually this is when we fall into the “let’s get pizza” trap. So I made these and they were so good!
You can spice the patties anyway you like. I chose Lea and Perrigin worchestersauce, sriracha, garlic and all round spice mix. But I imagine cajun or onion or ginger would also be awesome.

Here is the video with the original recipe. In the video you can see Hannah make the vegan chicken sandwich in a pace, where it is really easy to follow along.
In her recipe she doesn’t add that much water when cooking the quinoa. However I found it much better to add more water. Also I didn’t use ground flax but flax seeds – which is much cheaper. It worked like a charm.
