The Best Ever Veggie Sandwich

Ok, this is it. This is THE Best Ever Veggie Sandwich. Ever. Haha, well I guess I’ll leave that to you to decide. But seriously, this is definitely my favorite. It’s filled with vegetables of all different textures, has creaminess from the spreads and the bread is garlicky and toasted to perfection.

Steam those sweet tates

Start by steaming some sweet potato rounds. I like to do this regularly just to have some on hand throughout the week. It makes life easier because I pretty much always want sweet potatoes in my meals. My kids like them too!

I boil about 1 inch of water in a big pot, then place the steaming pot in with the potatoes, cover it and turn the heat to low. This allows the potatoes to steam without burning. It takes about 10 minutes and I know they’re ready when I can easily pierce them with a fork.

Prep those veggies

You can fill your sandwich with anything you want. But in addition to the sweet potatoes, I like to add the rainbow with lettuce, sprouts, cucumber, red onion, tomato, avocado and purple cabbage.

The secret to the Best Sandwich is the bread

Once of the most important parts of a sandwich is the bread. Don’t you agree? For this sandwich, I used the most fluffy and delicious sour dough bread from Whole Foods.

First, I sliced a garlic clove in half. Then I rubbed the garlic on what will become the outsides of the sandwich. Then, I used a grill pan to toast those sides to perfection. I put the heat up to med/high heat, and let it toast for about 4-5 minutes, checking it to make sure it wasn’t burnt.

A side view of the sandwich built on a white, square plate. The 2 sour dough pieces hold the veggies together, with some pieces falling out. You can see from the bottom: smashed avocado, cucumber, sprouts, tomato slices, sweet potato slices, purple cabbage, and red onion.
