a fiber-full sandwich




















                 


             I'm a big sandwich lover. I'm also a vegetarian, so the go-to turkey sandwich I used to make isn't an option any longer. One day I decided to put together all my favorite veggies together and I created a very healthy and delicious vegetarian sandy, as I like to call them. If you aren't vegetarian, merely substitute the tofurkey with real turkey. I also think this would be good with honey glazed ham.

Ingredients:
-Cucumber
-Baby spinach
-Feta cheese (I use Mediterranean-style from Trader Joes)
-Hummus
-Tofurkey
-Whole wheat bread (in the photos I used flax seed bread, which is equally as healthy and tasty)

Steps:
-Toast two slices of bread and spread an even amount of hummus on each.
-Cut up some cucumber and put it on top of one of the bread slices.
-Place a couple slices of tofurkey (or real meat) on top of the cucumber, sprinkle feta cheese on top.
-Pile on the spinach, I use a lot because I love it.
-Cut in half.

Note: This sandwich has a lot of fiber, so if you aren't used to eating fiber, you may want to lessen the amount of spinach you use or drink an extra amount of water with it to avoid an upset tummy.
