Favorite Summer Sandwich
Julie, the Simple Veganista, knows her way around a sandwich, and this one is no different. Topped with ingredients such as avocado, cucumber, tomato and hummus—this sandwich is perfect for any summer occasion!
Side notes: It’s vegan, but we think adding a slice or two of meat would make it meat eater approved!
Chickpea Sunflower Sandwich
“I like sandwiches and I like them big.” —Dana, The Minimalist Baker.
And we have to say, we believe her! This sandwich is perfect for any summer occasion. Packed full of chickpeas, sunflower seeds, cherry tomatoes, and maple syrup—this sandwich has enough oomf to keep you full without weighing you down.
Side notes: It’s vegan, and husband approved!
Green Chile Grilled Chicken Burgers
Summer is grillin’ season, so we’d be foolish not to include this sandwich! And okay, it’s technically a “burger” but is a burger not just a sandwich on a bun? Erin designed this recipe to be “ultra juicy” and filled with summer approved veggies like avocado, lettuce, and salsa!
Side notes: This is a double fister! You’ve been warned.
Chipotle Oyster Mushroom Sliders
These BBQ sliders need no introduction. Jenné, of Sweet Potato Soul, is one of our favorite food bloggers, and with this recipe, she’s really out done herself! This is a Southern-style sandwich through and through! Perfect for a day at the beach or a backyard BBQ.
Side note: It’s vegan, but trust us, meat eaters will never know!
Street Chic Egyptian Lamb Pita
We know what you’re thinking, “this is not a sandwich.” But isn’t a wrap just a sandwich that’s been folded? And we gotta say, Cal-EZ nutritionist Danielle Omar hit it out of the park with this one! (Or maybe we should say her husband did since this is technically his guest post!) This wrap is PACKED with summer flavors, and we think the lamb is a great way to mix up the traditional sandwich meat selection.
Side note: This recipe is husband approved and definitely requires two hands!
