This quick & easy vegan Avocado Veggie Sandwich is piled high with fresh vegetables, sprouts, and creamy mashed avocado. Customize as desired or add baked tofu or tempeh for more protein!
This easy (5-10 minute) avocado sandwich is a lunchtime favorite!
What makes this sandwich special is the combination of:
- Mashed avocado on one slice of bread
- Mustard or hummus on the other slice of bread
They both add great taste and flavor, but also act as a helpful "glue" keeping the veggies in place.
Ingredients for Avocado Sandwich
For this recipe you will need:
- Your favorite bread: I use organic whole grain bread when possible, and lightly toast it for added flavor and texture.
- Roma tomato
- Red onion
- Cucumber slices
- Fresh baby spinach: Or other leaf lettuce, arugula, etc.
- Hummus: Or mustard or other creamy sandwich spread.
- Clover sprouts or alfalfa sprouts: Optional, but I really enjoy this addition!
How to Customize
Make it just the way you like it, or layer it with other ingredients such as:
- Thin slices of savory baked tofu or tempeh
- Vegan mayonnaise: Or your own favorite mayo or sandwich spread.
- Vegan cheese slices: Add a slice of provolone cheese for added taste.
- Other vegetables: Try roasted red bell pepper, or herbs like fresh basil.
This sandwich is a great choice for packed lunches, picnics, meal prep, and quick meals at home.
