I am trying to eat more veggies, and have begun to prepare some home made veggie sandwiches. You need something beyond straight veggies to give it some richness and added flavor notes, plus it helps to keep the veggie bits from going AWOL while you eat the sandwich... a thick layer of either hummus or guacamole tastes good, and when I tried to review some nutritional comparisons, they both earned kudos!

I like using sliced tomato with salt and pepper, sliced cucumber, pitted/halved olives, shredded carrots - what are some of you favorite veggie sandwich stuffers?

Try using pita bread cut in half for your sandwiches. The lil bits have fewer places to escape. If you are going pure veggie, you suggested the main ones... Is a PB&J a veggie sandwich? Hmmm... Otherwise, mayo, cheeses, taziki dips work.

I like eggplant, if it's a warm sandwich. I also like peppers, I found a nice red pepper spread. Also some chopped olives. Anything you have on hand, use it.

Good one - I need to eat radishes more often...it's an extra step but I may try to saute' them if they are too sharp - tried them that way once before and they were delicious.

Grilled veggies like eggplant, zucchini, peppers on good rustic bread with fresh mozzarella and balsamic.

More nice suggestions - I love olives and I guess they are loaded with healthy olive oil :-).

Cooking the veggies will be a little more work, but if it's for a weekend lunch, I could see that, and some pan-fried eggplant or zucchini slices or pepper strips couldn't be a bad thing to change it up and get more variety...

I did just buy some balsamic vinegar and am looking for ways to use it. I guess I could just drizzle that balsamic vinegar over the veggies as they saute' to coat and infuse them?

I start my uncooked veggie sandwiches with whole wheat pita bread from an authentic Arabic bakery, not the grocery store pita that are usually loaded with preservatives. The pitas I buy at an Arab grocery store nearby are delivered every Thursday morning from a big Arab bakery in Dearborn, MI. You have to put them in the freezer the day you buy them as they will go stale fast if left out for more than 48 hours. They defrost at room temperature in 10-15 minutes. You can defrost just one, or how ever many you are going to consume for a meal.

I get a mixing bowl and put in half an avocado, sometimes more. I add some chopped onion, tomato, zucchini, jalapeƱo and sometimes chopped carrot or celery. Add one slice of cheese cut into small pieces. I season with black and cayenne pepper, oregano and paprika, then slosh on some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Mix it all up well and stuff into the pita cut into two halves. This is a sort of a guacamole sandwich.

I eat the above as my lunch meal almost every day, along with a piece of fruit and some plain yogurt. For a snack, I sometimes eat half a pita with hummus.
