Who loves a good sandwich?!
This Ultimate rainbow veggie sandwich recipe, full of vibrant produce and a combination of freshly sliced raw vegetables, pickled red cabbage, and roasted red pepper. Sandwiched between basil + freshly baked bread. This sandwich comes together in minutes, and is our lunch of choice on busy distance learning days.
Somewhat unexpectedly, our country went back on lock down. We need to rely on simple, healthy recipes!
I needed to stock the house up really quickly as we would be in full confinement for a few days. Honestly, is there any better feeling when your house has everything you need while going into confinement?
We had our produce box delivered early, I stopped at the bakery for fresh baguette and sandwich bread, and with produce overflowing, I felt so abundant and ready to take on the next few days or weeks.
When I know I will be juggling distance learning, taking care of my toddler, all meals and household responsibilities while my husband is at work, I get to prepping!
Something about distance learning makes my sweet eight year old daughter REALLY hungry. We never saw her eat so much as we did on the first lock down last year. I made a
- big batch of apple sauce
- homemade fruit leathers
- mango popsicles
- trail mix assortment
- prepped some fruit and vegetables for easy snacking
My saving grace on distance learning days for lunch is this Ultimate rainbow veggie sandwich recipe!
This sandwich is healthy, filling, full of color and nutrients to keep us energized and fueled for the day. I have all of our vegetables sliced and ready to go, stored in glass. You can read more here about my favorite storage and food preservation tips.
All of the ingredients are stored pre sliced, and there’s no cooking involved. So it comes together in a breeze!
One of our goals for this new year was to incorporate even more plants into our diet, to reduce our impact on the environment. It’s really so easy since our family loves fruit and veggies.
I love to serve this sandwich with some sweet potato fries or oven baked potato peel chips! Ultimate rainbow veggie sandwich recipe ingredients:
1/4 cup roasted peppers

Few sprigs of Arugula
1/3 Sliced cucumber
