MEDITERRANEAN VEGGIE SANDWICH 

Do you have days during the week that you go meatless? Maybe it is Meatless Monday? Or you decided that for three of the seven days out of the week you want to go meatless? Recently Mike and I decided that as much as possible, my family will try to go meatless three days a week. Today’s Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich recipe is one of my favorite, easy vegetarian lunch options.

This Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich is inspired by one of my favorite sandwiches from Panera.  This sandwich is nothing fancy and really simple to put together.  You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand, either make your own hummus or buy your favorite, change up the cheese, add olives, or maybe avocado. Customize until your heart is content.

I am a hummus and feta cheese lover and I think their pair great on sandwiches.  These match up really well with the fresh, crunchy vegetables.  My favorite part of the sandwich is actually the bread and the alfalfa sprouts.  These two things take sandwiches to the next level for me.

Lets start with the alfalfa sprouts. I love sprouts on sandwiches, on top of a bagel with cream cheese or in soup. Those little guys are small, but powerful.  Because they are so small, the sprouts contain a concentrated amount of certain vitamins and minerals such as calcium, vitamin K and vitamin C. Alfalfa sprouts contain just 8 calories and 0 grams of fat per cup {source}.  So you can really bulk up a sandwich with them and give it that extra texture and you will feel like your sandwich has more to offer you.

Next lets talk about the bread.  For me, bread makes or breaks a sandwich.  Am I right? Or am I right? Today’s Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich uses Dave’s Killer Bread Good Seed Thin Sliced Bread .  Have you heard of Dave’s Killer Bread before? Somehow I missed the bandwagon on this one but I have since been converted.

The bread is packed with protein, fiber, whole grains and no artificial anything, USDA organic, Non-GMO Project Verified.  It tastes great and has a good texture. It is soft, but not too soft. Oh, and those seeds! <3

But here is the part I actually love just as much as the taste and the fact that it is made with quality ingredients.  Dave’s Killer Bread gives ex-prisoners a second chance by giving them a job. It is built on the foundation of seeing the good in everyone, and understanding the power of second chances.
 
It started when Glenn Dahl, one of Dave’s Killer Bread’s founders, gave a second chance to his younger brother Dave after he served 15 years in prison. Glenn invited Dave back to the family bakery with one stipulation – he had to bring his best recipe ever. Blues Bread was born, and after a wildly successful debut at the local Farmers Market in Portland, OR, Dave’s recipe turned into the best-selling organic bread brand in the U.S.: Dave’s Killer Bread. Today, one in three of their employee Partners has a criminal background, and they are committed to creating a culture that enhances life after incarceration.
