Deliciously Fresh and Flavorful Veggie Sandwich

We eat a lot of sandwiches at our house. They are fast, easy, filling, and perfect for home or lunch on the go. And while we often stick to the basics- turkey, peanut butter and jelly, grilled cheese- I wanted to play around with something a little extra.

This Veggie Sandwich is the thing dreams are made of. So insanely flavorful, and packed with as many vegetables as I could squeeze in. And the herbed cream cheese is easy to make, but totally takes it to the next level. And the whole thing comes together so quickly! It’s a bistro-worthy sandwich that won’t break the bank, and can be on your plate in 10 minutes.

Ingredients you need to make a veggie sandwich.

How to Make a Veggie Sandwich with Herbed Cream Cheese:

  1. Make the herbed cream cheese. We used whipped cream cheese, which is nice and spreadable right out of the fridge. If using regular cream cheese, soften slightly. Put the cream cheese in a small bowl. Mince the fresh herbs and add to the cream cheese along with the garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir well.
  2. Slice the veggies. Slice the avocado, tomato, and cucumber. Shred carrot.
  3. Assemble the sandwich. Spread your bread with a generous layer of cream cheese. We put cream cheese on the top and bottom slice of bread, but you do you! Top with sliced cheese, avocado, lettuce, pickles, shredded carrots, cucumber, and tomatoes.
  4. Devour. Enjoy the very best veggie sandwich you have ever eaten.

Tips & Suggestions:

  • This recipe makes a delicious wrap. And it travels great too!
  • Try swiss, gouda, or monterey jack cheese in place of the provolone.
  • Play with the veggies! Other yummy options are spinach, radishes, olives, artichokes, bell peppers, or red onion.
  • Sourdough or rye bread are also delicious with this sandwich.
  • Serve the herbed cream cheese as a cracker spread.
