This post is more of a recipe “concept” than an actual recipe, but is delicious nonetheless. And hey, sometimes you just need an excuse to make a pretty sandwich, am I right? 😉

To be honest, I have enjoyed and loved healthier foods for pretty much my whole life. No complaints over here, but I do realize that some people don’t enjoy the taste of vegetables or salad greens as much as I do.

I created From My Bowl with the objective to make healthy eating accessible AND enjoyable for everyone. I truly believe that anyone can learn to love their fruits and veggies with a little experimentation and an open mind. And if you pardon the slightly obscene comparison, I think these Rainbow Veggie Sandwiches with Creamy Homemade Hummus are a perfect “gateway” drug into the healthy eating world 😉

We all eat with our eyes first, and there’s no denying that the veggie rainbow cross-section of these Sandwiches is appealing. I also think the combination of soft Bread, creamy Hummus, and crunchy Vegetables makes this Sandwich a hack of a lot more interesting to eat as well. No one-note mush here! Just be sure to slice your product thinly to make it easier to chew – I use my mandoline to help with this.

However you choose to slice your veggies, please know that this recipe is also very customizable. While it is fun to eat the rainbow, sometime’s it’s just not cost-effective or feasible based on produce availability. That being said, feel free to add or subtract any veggies that you’d like in this recipe! As long as you have a sandwich that’s full of the plants you love, I’m pretty sure you’re going to like it 🙂

Rainbow Veggie Sandwiches with Hummus

Packed with crunchy veggies and creamy hummus, these Rainbow Veggie Sandwiches are an easy and tasty lunch for both kids and adults! Easily customizable and great for on-the-go or meal prep.

  • Author: Caitlin Shoemaker
  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 Minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 Sandwich 1x
  • Category: Sandwich
  • Method: No Bake
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 slices Bread of Choice (Gluten-Free if necessary)
  • 34 tbsp Creamy Homemade Hummus
  • Rainbow Veggies of choice, thinly sliced*

Instructions

  1. First, toast your slices of bread, if you’d like.
  2. Spread the Hummus evenly onto one side of each slice of bread, then layer the thinly sliced Veggies onto one side of the Sandwich. If you’d like the “Rainbow Effect”, layer them in ROYGBIV order.
  3. Close the Sandwich by placing the other side of Bread (Hummus-side-down), on top, then serve as desired! I like to wrap my sandwiches in parchment paper if I am not eating them right away, as I find it helps to hold all of the Vegetables in place.

Notes

  • To make my rainbow sandwiches, I used: Beets, Tomato, Carrot, Yellow Bell Pepper, Butter Lettuce, Power Greens, and Cucumber.
