It’s been almost two months since I haven’t posted a single recipe. I was on a fabulous holiday to Mumbai and completely cut off blogging wise . I missed you guys , hope you missed me too. Now that I am back , my apartment is in a mess . So much unpacking and cleaning to do . And I am still in a holiday mood , just don’t feel like cooking. I kinda have to drag myself to the kitchen to make something. And needless to mention all the jet lag is getting me and my son crazy. So made these quick and easy vegan coleslaw sandwich bars which doesn’t require cooking and are express and yummy. We ate it happily without any fuss . I love it when my son eats his veggies readily, and coleslaw has a lot of it.
There are so many ways you can make coleslaw . And every version is equally delicious . So what are these bars made of –
I have used shredded green cabbage , purple cabbage and carrots – takes care of veggie intake
The cream part – equal parts of vegan mayonnaise / spread and vegan cream cheese – takes care of protein and calcium.
Some extra dash of sauces and herbs takes care of bursting flavors.
I have used 12 grain bread which gives it a healthy touch – takes care of required protein and carbs.
Do go through the possible substitution and addition at the end of the recipe which are equally delicious to have.
No cook easy recipe idea
Make ahead of time
Crowd pleaser, perfect for large parties and picnics.
flexible and customisable
Can be made and eaten more than one way –
Coleslaw is absolutely delicious and up’s the flavors when added to wraps, burgers , hot dogs, tacos or pita.
Have coleslaw sandwich grilled or toasted for ultimate crunch.
Throw in some boiled pasta or fruits like pineapples , mango kiwi or add in some boiled potatoes, lettuce and nuts to make a bowl of nourishing salad for yourself.
Not a cream cheese fan or can’t find any , replace it with hung curd , greek yogurt or sour cream .
Add in your favorite herbs to make it extra tasty.
Vegan’s use vegan spread and vegan cream cheese.
Make the filling ahead of time – stays good upto 3 days in the fridge .
Now you have so many reasons to make it.
Hope you enjoy these vegan coleslaw sandwich bars. I will be saving some for snacking at the park tomorrow.

Hi! What else can we use other than mayonnaise?
Hi , you can use hung curd with some herbs and lemon or even cream cheese .
Hi khushboo, wonderful recipe, I have a quick question, can we make the sandwiches too a day before? Won’t they get soggy? Thank you ☺️
Hi , Yes , they will . Just prepare the coleslaw and keep separately . Stuff it in the bread no more than 4 -6 hours before you eat.
