Vegetarian Italian Hoagies
This unexpectedly basic sandwich is brimming with flavor thanks to the addition of peppery pepperoncini, artichoke cores, and red onion. Traditional Italian subs normally contain meat, but this sandwich ditches the meat in favor of artichoke centers and red onion. Both dinner and brunch are enhanced by its delectable flavor. If you want to prevent the bread from getting soggy while hoagies are being transported, you should disassemble the sandwich and only put it back together right before you eat it. Serve a tomato and cucumber salad as a complement to the main dish.
This recipe for a light and airy cucumber sandwich strikes a wonderful balance between the richness of the ingredients and the sandwich’s inherent airiness.

Chickpea Salad Sandwich
This vegan chickpea salad sandwich is surprisingly delicious, and it has a lemony flavor and a vibrant flavor overall. It takes the tastes of a classic tuna salad sandwich—dill, lemon, and just a hint of garlic—and combines them with chickpeas, which offer a healthy fiber increase and a source of protein that is suitable for vegans. The celery adds a nice crunch to the dish.
Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches
By exchanging the mayonnaise in a typical egg salad for velvety avocado, you may give the dish a feel that is more airy and light. To make a meal that can be quickly transported to and from work or school, simply assemble a sandwich out of toasted whole-wheat bread and the food of your choice.
White Bean & Avocado Sandwich
On a nutritious sandwich, which can be a time-efficient choice for either lunch or dinner, a spread made from white beans that have been mashed to a smooth consistency creates a protein-rich spread that is creamy and satiating. To add some diversity to the dish, try substituting canned lentils or black beans. This vegetarian sandwich recipe is also a fiber powerhouse, with 15 grams of fiber from whole-wheat bread, avocado, lentils, and greens. That’s more than half of the daily fiber need for most women, making it an excellent choice.

As an accompaniment, all that is required is either a glass of cold pinot noir or a glass of beer at room temperature.
