Epic Veggie Sandwich

Epic Veggie Sandwich

As plant based foodies, we’re always looking for fun ways to incorporate more veggies into our diets. Because let’s be honest, you can only eat salads for so many days in a row and stay sane. Veggies are the ultimate nutrient delivery method. If you’re like Ben, you can smash them in any way, shape, or form. But, he’s also a freak of nature. If you’re like me, you’re slightly more selective (i.e. picky) about the veggies you eat. This epic veggie sandwich is the perfect way to not only get multiple servings of veggies in one meal, but also still be happy that you’re eating them.

This powerhouse sandwich packs a huge serving of veggies into one delightfully crunchy, fresh meal. The crunch factor is REAL with this sandwich, and that’s part of what makes it so damn GOOD.

With a myriad of veggies including cucumber, radish, carrots, bell pepper, and sprouts, this meal leaves you feeling energized and ready to tackle the rest of your day.

None of the flavors of these veggies is particularly strong, which is what makes it work so well. Everything is just light, crunchy, and delicious. The sprouts add a big boost of nutrients as well. Sprouts are great to add into any sandwich for an extra kick of filling goodness.

This veggie sandwich is also great for meal prep since you can slice your veggies beforehand, and simply assemble on the morning of (or night before).

In addition to the veggies making this monster sammich epic, there’s also the SPREAD. Yummy, creamy, delightful goodness. We’re huge fans of Kite Hill, which is a company that makes almond milk based products. We try to steer away from dairy as much as we can, and Kite Hill offers this spread that tastes JUST like cream cheese. We used the chive flavor on this veggie sandwich, and it completely brings it all together.

    I love sprouts! I didn’t really eat them till we moved to Japan. They are everywhere here and I am thankful!

      Sprouts are the BEST! And we honestly didn’t really discover that until we gave up meat. They add so much oomph to a sandwich like this, and are crazy packed with nutrients!

      ALL the layers!! We recently made some epic breakfast fries that were definitely loaded haha. Perhaps a tiny bit less healthy than this sammich :).

    I love veggies, so this looks and sounds amazing to me! I’ve actually never had sprouts before, but I’ve really been wanting to try them on a sandwich.

      Oh Britney you will LOVE this sandwich then! And sprouts are AMAZING on sandwiches because they add tons of volume but don’t have a super strong taste. And they’re crazy good for you. Enjoy lady!

    You know I love to meal prep =o) This sounds like my kind of sandwich too! Also I had no idea they have almond milk cream cheese! Where do you get that stuff?

      November 22, 2017 at 3:40 pm

      Haha we do too! And it’s the BEST! We’ve found it at Whole Foods, Sprouts, and some Kind Soopers. Whole Foods is usually a pretty good bet though. It’s SO good! It doesn’t have that weird taste that some non dairy spreads do. Tell us what you think!
