We've got great vegetarian sandwiches that you'll look forward to for every meal, including fresh and healthy hummus and vegetables on whole grain bread, gooey grilled cheese, veggie burgers, breakfast burritos, and much more in between.
Hummus and tapenade unite to pack a flavorful lunchtime punch in this vegetable-stuffed sandwich. In addition to cucumber and carrot, you might like to add tomatoes or avocado.
Aromatic basil, slabs of ripe beefsteak tomato, and flavorful Gouda ensure that this is no ordinary grilled cheese. This sandwich is made on the grill, but you could also prepare it in a cast-iron skillet with a little bit of butter melted in the bottom.
Begin with Thai-flavored baked tofu (available in natural foods stores and many supermarkets), and pile on roasted bell pepper and onion. Top it all off with a sweet-savory sauce made from peanut butter, honey, ginger, and sesame oil for spreading on the sandwich.
Figs and goat cheese are a classic combination in salads, but here, the pair make a marvelous sandwich, joined by sweet caramelized onions. Enjoy these for lunch, or cut them into small wedges and serve as an appetizer.
The portobello mushrooms for these burgers are roasted, but they would be great on the grill, too. Mix spicy brown mustard, horseradish, lime juice, and minced jalapeno into mashed avocado to make the sumptuously spicy sauce.
Layer cheese, tomatoes, and fresh parsley on ciabatta bread and weigh the sandwich down with heavy cans to meld the flavors for at least an hour before seving. Drain some of the oil from a jar of sun-dried tomatoes and mix it with Dijon mustard to make a unique sandwich spread.
An oven-fried version of eggplant Parmesan tops crusty Italian bread to make a satsifying vegetarian sandwich. For an extra treat, brush the halved loaf of bread with garlic butter and brown under the broiler before adding the layers of tomato sauce, eggplant, and mozzarella.
Canned lentils are the secret to these easy, delicious mint-flecked veggie burgers. Top the burgers with yogurt sauce and serve with a lemony carrot salad.
A roasted version of ratatouille, the classic Provencal stew of eggplant, zucchini, onion, and tomatoes gets wrapped up with fresh mozzarella on whole-wheat lavash. Warm the assembled wraps under the broiler before rolling them up, or enjoy them cold as part of a picnic lunch.
Mix honey with grainy mustard to whip up the easy spread for sharp cheddar sandwiches on whole-wheat rolls. Soak sliced cucumbers in a mixture of cider vinegar, honey, bay leaves, mustard seeds, and fresh ginger to make quick pickles.
Sweet roasted beets combine with curried bell peppers, mushrooms, and brussels sprouts to fill this delicious wrapped sandwich. Tangy ricotta salata and yogurt make the perfect dressing.
This Italian-style cheese sandwich begins with homemade pizza dough, charred on the grill. Spread it with roasted garlic, rosemary, provolone, and scallions, then return it to the grill to melt the cheese.
Portobello mushrooms, one of our favorite vegetarian burger stand-ins, are marinated along with red bell peppers in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and minced garlic. Serve the grilled portobellos and peppers on buns with fresh goat cheese and lettuce leaves.
