Mushroom Reuben and More Meatless Sandwiches

July 7, 2014

I am not a vegetarian but I do enjoy a good vegetarian sandwich now and again.  In addition to boosting your veggie intake, it's one of those dishes that will help you clean out your fridge and prevent you from wasting precious food.  A vegetarian sandwich can be something as simple as two pieces of bread loaded with a variety of vegetables (e.g. lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, onion etc...) on two pieces of bread or an elaborate meal that requires several steps prior to serving.  These sandwich recipes are versatile and delicious so give them a fair try.

Black Bean Burgers
Recipe from Host the Toast

Every vegetarian should have a dynamite veggie burger recipe in their back pocket.  This one should be it.  The homemade black bean patties is packed with texture and flavored.  These burgers are served with a chipotle hummus and crunchy guacamole.

Grilled Zucchini Hummus Wrap
Recipe from Maebells

One of my favorite ways to prepare zucchini is grilling it. Slices of grilled zucchini are paired with kale, tomato, onion, and hummus to create this tasty wrap.  If you aren't counting carbs, you can make this a sandwich too.


Warm Eggplant Sandwich
Recipe from Healthy Recipes

Roasted eggplant and goat cheese play well together, especially in this not-so-traditional grilled cheese sandwich.  While not the lowest calorie meal in the books, this sandwich registers at 345 calories per sandwich.

Mushroom Reuben
Recipe from Hidden Fruits and Veggies

Mushrooms are often used as a meat substitute in burgers and sandwiches for good reason.  When cooked right, the heat can coax out the rich umami flavor found in mushrooms.  This sandwich is a play on a classic Reuben with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing.
