This recipe makes easy vegan sandwiches that are delicious when eaten fresh, or perfect for school lunches or meal prepping.
When it comes to vegan sandwich recipes or vegetarian sandwich recipes, I like being able to keep things nice and simple but still delicious.
My favorite thing about this easy vegetable sandwich is that it's incredibly easy to make and filled with mostly whole food plant based ingredients.
Between the fluffy slices of bread and creamy hummus are some of my favorite fresh vegetables. They give this meal bright, fresh flavor and can be a part of a well rounded vegan diet.
Bread: Personally, I love to use sourdough bread for sandwiches. You can use any type of bread that you prefer or have on hand.
Hummus: I used a classic hummus for this sandwich, but again you can use any flavor of hummus that you prefer.
This is a great opportunity to add a burst of flavor and really make this recipe your own, I definitely encourage everyone to get creative here and try different hummus flavors.
Lettuce: Any type of lettuce can work here. I used a classic green leaf lettuce in this recipe.
Micro Greens: I LOVE adding micro greens and sprouts to sandwiches and salads.
They are a great way to add nutrients and usually have a crunchy texture.
Tomato: I used heirloom tomatoes in these sandwiches, you can use any type of tomato that you like best.
Radish: Sliced radishes are a great way to add a good crunch to your sandwich. Another fun way to add crunch and texture is to add a handful of chips... yum!
Cucumber: The sliced cucumber adds delicious freshness.

Storage and Substitutions
This veg sandwich recipe is a great sandwich for a picnic, school lunches, or meal prepping.
If you're going to save one of these for later, simply wrap the sandwich up and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days. I don't recommend longer than that because the hummus can make the bread a little soggy.
As far as substitutions, this recipe is a very basic easy vegetable sandwich and can be easily adjusted to your preferences. Simply remove any part of the sandwich you don't like and add something else instead.
