I've always been a big fan of sandwiches. When I stopped eating meat I was a little sad to say goodbye to the deli case and I wondered how I was going to satisfy my sandwich cravings. Luckily it didn't take me very long to find some great options. One of my favorites is a veggie sandwich! A veggie sandwich is nothing new, I've seen many variations of it over the years, and I enjoyed eating them occasionally when I was still an omnivore. This is just my version.
I pile on thin slices of avocado for creaminess and the benefit of healthy fat, then cucumber, carrot shreds, roma tomato, dill pickle… and finally the greens. I choose green leaf lettuce for it's crunch, and spinach for it's flavor and nutrients. I pair these veggies with soy-free Veganaise and organic stone ground mustard.
I've had this veggie sandwich for lunch every day for the past week. It's not often that I can eat the same thing over and over again. It's just that good.
Do you have a favorite plant-based sandwich? Feel free to share in the comments section below!
Spread a thin layer of Veganaise on two slices of bread, and add stone ground mustard on one of the slices, or both if you really enjoy mustard.
Place 4-6 slices of Avocado on top of the layer of mustard. Top the avocado with 4-6 cucumber slices, then a small handful of carrot shreds. Next add 4 slices of roma tomato, then the pickles. Finish it off with a handful of spinach and a large leaf of lettuce, and top it with the second piece of bread. Enjoy!
Tip: This sandwich is also great with a layer of hummus! Play around with the toppings and create your own favorite veggie sandwich.
