For the bread, add the ingredients in the order listed. Choose the "basic/white bread cycle" on a light/normal color setting. The bread machine will do the rest!
NOTE: TO MAKE THE BREAD WITHOUT A BREAD MACHINE
-Proof the yeast (dissolve the yeast and the 1 tablespoon of sugar in warm water, amount will depend on the recipe).
-Combine the ingredients and mix well.
-Knead the dough until smooth and soft.
-Let rise until doubled.
-Punch down, and shape into a loaf.
-Place bread in a greased loaf pan, or on a baking sheet for a round loaf.
-Rise again until doubled.
-Bake, as most bread is baked in a moderate oven, about 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) this is a good temperature to start with.
-Bake for 40 to 50 minutes (this will depend on your oven and the bread itself so be careful here), or until the crust is golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped. The baking time may vary slightly.
To assemble the sandwich, using our Zucchini/Carrot Bread or your favorite loaf, slice medium to thick slices.
Combine the avocado and vegan Mayonnaise, leaving it semi-chunky. Spread one half on each slice.
Next, a layer of spinach. Press lightly.
Add a layer of thinly sliced pears, then shredded carrots, thinly sliced tomatos and finally, red onion.
Top with the other half and give it a good press.
Serve with your a pickle and your favorite veggie chips!
