Let’s be real: Sandwiches are the best. They’re easy to make, easy to pack, and don’t require utensils to eat. But if you don’t eat meat, high-protein vegetarian sandwiches can be a little tougher to come by. Forget picking up a vegetarian sandwich at the deli—you’ll likely end up with two slices of bread piled with lettuce, tomatoes, onion slices and a few pieces of cheese. So instead of relying on someone else to make your sandwich, why not just start packing your own? We’ve done you a solid and rounded up high-protein vegetarian sandwich recipes worth trying.

The options below are a mixture of vegetarian and vegan recipes that get their protein from meatless sources (like eggs and cheese) and/or plant-based sources (like chickpeas, tofu and tempeh). From smokey tofu sandwiches to meatless Sloppy Joes—we’re sure these sandwiches will cure your vegetarian meal woes.

No matter what your restrictions or preferences, you’re bound to find a lunch-worthy vegetarian sandwich that’ll keep you full for hours.
