While Jimmy John’s popularity lies in his animal-based charcuterie-style toppings, vegans can always come and cook a plant-based meal. With quality bread, a vegetable-rich topping station and vegan fries, there’s something for everyone. Here’s everything plant-based in any of your favorite sandwich chains.
Fresh vegetable toppings and garnishes come together to form our top two picks for vegan diners.
The Gourmet Vegetarian Sandwich
This sandwich is made with fresh avocado, cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce without the Provolone cheese or mayonnaise. Add your favorite condiments, a bag of vegan-tasting Jimmy Johns crisps, a kosher dill pickle and a drink for a hearty meal.
The Vegetarian Gourmet “Unwich”
Jimmy Johns’ breadless sandwich alternative is essentially a salad to eat without silverware; the interiors are conveniently wrapped in lettuce and covered with a paper wrap.
Tree climbing tip
To prepare your “Unwich” roll-up rock, follow the Gourmet Vegetarian formula (minus the cheese and mayonnaise) and order vegan sauces on the side for dipping. Don’t forget to add a bag of Jimmy’s chips for added flavor and crunch.
