All you need to make the best and easiest veggie sandwich is whole grain bread, hummus, avocado, and any fresh veggies you like. The result is a nutrient-packed, filling, and healthy sandwich that just so happens to be very pretty, too. (387 calories or 8 Weight Watchers Freestyle points)
When I tell you that this is the easiest veggie sandwich, I mean it. It’s so simple that even writing down a recipe for it feels silly. But if nothing else, I’m here to encourage you to make unfussy, healthy, delicious things, so here goes.
Use whatever fresh veggies you enjoy or have on hand, but my favorite mix includes lettuce (I like green leaf or romaine), cucumber, bell pepper (any color), tomato, red onion, carrot, and sprouts. For flavor, I tuck a few dill pickles inside, and for heft and staying power, I slather my bread with hummus and mashed avocado. Feel free to swap out the hummus for cream cheese, add a slice of cheese or two, use store-bought guacamole in place of avocado, and skip the pickles altogether if you can’t stand them.
The veggies are pleasingly crisp and crunchy, with their own unique tart or sweet or even zesty flavors, but it’s the whole grain bread, the hummus, and the rich, creamy avocado that really provide satisfaction. The sandwich just isn’t substantial enough without them, so don’t skimp on these three.
