Fresh Vegetable Sandwich With An Avocado Dressing

Sandwiches don’t need to have meats, cheeses, or chemical-filled condiments. You can make a healthy vegan sandwich with some of your favorite veggies. We enjoy adding sprouts because they add a nice crunch; plus, they are a great source of plant-based protein.

Instructions

  1. Add all of the dressing ingredients to a blender and blend away until you get a smooth consistency. Pour into an airtight glass jar to store because you will have extra dressing.
  2. After you prep the veggies, toast the bread. Assemble your sandwich the way you want. We recommend spreading the avocado on the toasted bread and then layering your ingredients as you like.
  3. Drizzle some of the dressing on the sandwich before adding the top piece of bread. Enjoy!
