Artichoke and Kale Veggie Sandwich

Artichoke and Kale Veggie Sandwich recipe by @beardandbonnet on

Let’s talk sandwiches, like epic veggie sandwiches that make you literally drool as you eat them, they leave you stuffed and satisfied. This sandwich is the ultimate- it’s a rainbow of color, the perfect mix of texture and the flavor is nothing short of DYNO-MITE!!!

Maybe I should tell you how the heck this sandwich came to be. It was sort of a crazy accident that has now turned into a weekly indulgence around here. You see, a few weeks back the fruit bandit turned 5 and we threw an epic, birthday party! The whole theme of the party was green; green decorations, green drink boxes, green reptiles and you guessed it, green food. With an invite list of over 20 kids and parents we knew we were going to need a lot of food. So, I did what I do and I made a TON of food! At the end of the day most of the spread was devoured, but I was left with some stray veggies, and a cup or two of Pinch of Yum’s Magic 5 Minute Green Sauce .

Come dinner time on party night I was exhausted, but ravenously hungry. I surveyed the ingredients I had on hand from the party, scoured the freezer  and found a few of my favorite gluten free sourdough rolls tucked away and grabbed a couple slices of leftover crispy eggplant bacon. Ultimately, I decided that the sandwich route was the only way to go. I am so glad I did! The only downfall really is that now each week I have to make a batch of that green sauce to have on hand when the sandwich mood strikes, it’s really not such a bad problem to have.

Artichoke and Kale Veggie Sandwich

No bread, no worries! These ingredients make a killer kale salad, just thin the green sauce with a little extra lime juice or water so that is more of a dressing consistency.

  • Author: This Mess is Ours
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 1 sandwich 1x


  • 3 leaves Lacinato kale, stems removed and thinly shredded
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 gluten free bun, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons 5 Minute Magic Green Sauce
  • 23 marinated artichoke hearts, chopped fine
  • 2 strips crispy eggplant bacon
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 23 thin slices of red onion
  • 45 thin slices of radish
  • 34 thin slices of jalapeno


  1. Combine the kale, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Gently massage the kale until it starts to tenderize and appears glossy. Set aside.
  2. Spread the green sauce evenly across both the top and bottom of the bun. Layer the sandwich by adding the chopped artichoke hearts, kale, eggplant bacon, carrot, red onion, radish slices and jalapeno. Season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper, serve immediately.

    Your sandwich building skills are on point. Once eggplant is available here, I am totally trying the bacon!
    I forget how much a sandwich is a rockin’ meal, more motivation to make some gf sandwich bread, or some of your biscuits. xo!

      Thank you!! I cannot wait for you to try that crispy eggplant bacon – it is seriously SO good. Biscuits would be a great option, however I gotta get you some Bread Srsly to try because you really deserve some gf sourdough 🙂

    So much delicious colour in this sandwich! And the artichokes are such a neat addition. Yum!

      Thanks Katrina! The artichokes give it that extra kick of flavor and make the sandwich super juicy 🙂

    I love Sadie’s bread! I thought sourdough was definitely off limits when going gf/df until I found her bread. This looks like a sandwich I want to sink my teeth into and love how easy it is to make when dinner for the family feels like a tall order. YUMS.

      Hey there Jessica! I am so glad that you have found Bread Srsly too, it is a total game changer. This is the only sandwich my husband will eagerly accept as a dinner option, ha! It’s super hearty and those artichokes take it to the next level.
