Avocado Veggie Sandwich

Our go-to quick and easy sandwich piled high with fresh veggies, sprouts, and creamy mashed avocado. Add baked tofu or tempeh for a protein boost!



I've been making this EASY (5-10 minute!) sandwich for years and always thought it was a bit too simple for the site. But hey... simple is what we do, so here goes! It's also a great base recipe to play around with. I really enjoy the combo of mashed avocado on one slice, and mustard (or hummus if you prefer) on the other. Not only are they both super delicious, but act as a helpful "glue" keeping the veggies in place.


I often add thin slices of savory baked tofu as well which adds awesome flavor and a protein boost. Or you can change it up with some vegan mayo or cheese (big fan of the Follow Your Heart brand - they've got some pretty tasty options!) No matter how you like to stack it, these are always a great, classic choice for on-the-go lunches, picnics, and quick meals at home.

Come join The Garden Grazer on Instagram 🍓 and share a photo if you make this! I'd love to see your favorite combos as well!

    1. Hi Alyssa! Sorry for the delay in my response! I try to find local organic bread if possible, but also love the "Dave's Killer Bread" brand (which I believe is pictured here - their Organic Good Seed bread) :) Wishing you a beautiful week! -Kaitlin
