Veggie Loaded Sandwiches!!
What’s a picnic without a sandwich loaded with veggies! I love these because you can really pick and choose whatever you’d like for vegetables to top this beautiful sandwich. Roast the vegetables before you leave for your picnic, toast your bread, package it all up in a container and off you go!
What you’ll need to pack:
4 slices of bread
1 green pepper
1 small zucchini
1 small yellow squash
1 small tomato
2 oz of fresh mozzarella cheese
4 tbsp of hummus (your choice, I used roasted red pepper)
1/2 tbsp of horseradish
Spread some horseradish on one slice of bread (you can omit this, I just like the extra kick!) Spread the hummus on top of that. Layer the veggies high, top with sliced cheese and another piece of bread!
This sandwich is super filling, you won’t need those unhealthy chips because this sandwich offers you the crunch from the toasted bread!
