Even though sandwiches aren’t something I usually associate with lots of veggies, it turns out there are kind of a lot of veggie-packed sandwiches out there. You see, I’m someone who’s not exactly great at eating the recommended 2 1/2 cups of vegetables I’m supposed to be eating every day per the USDA. If there’s a way to turn something that’s normally just meat, cheese, and an occasional slice of lettuce into what’s basically a salad between two slices of bread, I’m gonna know about it.
Before you tell me that all veggie sandwiches are boring, take a look at these 15 creative ideas and reconsider. While it might be easy to throw some tomatoes and sprouts on bread and call it a day, these ideas experiment in ways you would never expect, and they’re just as easy to make as their less-exciting counterparts. Get pumped for vegan BLTs that actually taste legit, bahn mi that are brimming with all of the veg, and cozy, satisfying wraps stuffed with broccoli and chickpeas. They aren’t all vegetarian, but a lot of them are, and most can easily be altered to become vegetarian, if that’s something you’re interested in. Bookmark them for later and before you know it, you’ll be eating more than enough vegetables every day—and you won’t hate it.
