Using peanut butter in savoury recipes is nothing new—peanuts and peanut sauce are part of the rich culinary traditions that infuse West African and Southeast Asian cooking. With our Savoury Peanut Butter Sandwich recipe, we aren’t asking you to go as far as West Africa. But we do ask that you step a little outside your culinary comfort zone, and into a whole new savoury peanut butter world!

We love using peanut butter for its rich, nutty flavour—but if you need an allergy-friendly option, swap in sunflower seed butter to make this recipe nut-free. Smooth or crunchy, peanutty or peanut-free, this recipe is best made with natural-style butters made from 100% peanuts or seeds. (We don’t recommend sweetened peanut butter for this recipe.)

Crisp lettuce and crunchy cucumber add freshness and textural complexity to our healthy plant-based Savoury Peanut Butter Sandwich—without overpowering the peanut butter flavour. This surprising combo makes for a sophisticated, grown-up spin on the peanut butter sandwich that’s full of contrast.

Make this unique and satisfying sandwich for lunch or dinner using our certified organic Multigrain sprouted bread (or your favourite Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery bread) and you’ll have a healthy and delicious bite to eat in no time.
