I went to the beach for the weekend with some of my best friends and we ate a lot of sweets and junk food. Today I'm craving some simple food and lots of veggies. I love a good veggie sandwich, and for me it has to have: sprouts, avocado, cucumber, and tomato. The other components can change up, but those are my non-negotiables!
I started by making an easy bean spread with a can of drained, rinsed white beans and put them in the food processor with the juice of half a lemon, 2 teaspoons grainy mustard, 2 teaspoons mayo, 5 shredded baby carrots, a palmful of chopped flat leaf parsley, and spices to taste: Creole seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. (Hummus would be a yummy alternative in the sandwich if you have some on hand and want to use it!)
After toasting some crusty sour dough bread, on the bottom slice I layered bean spread, sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, sliced red onion, and slices of avocado sprinkled with Kosher salt and cracked black pepper. The top slice I used whipped cream cheese, sunflower seeds, spicy sprouts, and butter lettuce. It was kinda hard to fit the final product in my mouth, but I powered through it

Tasty and filling, and you'll still feel good after eating it!
