Ultimate Veggie Sandwich-this is the BEST veggie sandwich! It’s easy to make and great for lunch or dinner.
After we spent a weekend in San Francisco, we went to Lodi, California, to visit family. I had the BEST veggie sandwich at this little sandwich shop called Fiori’s Butcher Shop. You may have seen my sandwich on Instagram. Of course, I snapped a photo! 🙂
When Josh suggested the Butcher Shop for lunch, I didn’t think they would have any veggie sandwich options. It sounded like a meat only place, but they actually had quite a few veggie friendly items. Plus, they let you make your own sandwich and that is what I did. I created a mean veggie sandwich and I had to recreate it at home. This is the Ultimate Veggie Sandwich!
So what is on my Ultimate Veggie Sandwich? Lots and lots of veggies, DUH:) Ok, I will give you the full run down. It has spinach, cucumber, tomato, sprouts, avocado, roasted red peppers, red onion, and hummus. My California sandwich didn’t have hummus, but I added it at home and I am so glad I did. Super yum!
My sandwich in California, came on a Dutch Crunch roll. It was so good! It was soft and crunchy, the best of both worlds. I wasn’t sure I would be able to find Dutch Crunch bread at home, but a local bakery makes a Dutch Crunch baguette. Yay!
If you can’t find Dutch Crunch bread, you can use your favorite bread. I just like the soft, chewy, crunchy bread! Plus, the top of the bread is pretty and I was trying to stay true to my original sandwich.
We took our Ultimate Veggie Sandwiches on a picnic and they were perfect! Lots of tasty veggies surrounded by carbs, the best way to go!
Make the Ultimate Veggie Sandwich and get yo veggies on!
