Veggie Club Sandwich

This post may include affiliate links.

For many people, the club sandwich is a go-to menu item at cafes, hotel restaurants, and sandwich shops. Its layers of toasted bread and stacks of sandwich fillers make it a classic. We’ve reinvented the classic club with grilled veggies and whole grain bread, making this veggie sandwich a new classic that will soon replace the club as your old reliable favorite.

Gobs of mayo, cold cuts, bacon, and white bread make the classic club a less than healthy choice. We’ve replaced these unhealthy ingredients with nutrient-rich veggies and whole grain bread in order to create a veggie sandwich that is brimming with nutrition in every bite. We’ve started out with grilled zucchini, eggplant, and bell pepper, making their already vibrant flavors sing by tossing them in a mix of extra virgin olive oil, garlic, oregano, thyme, and balsamic vinegar. These Mediterranean flavors blend perfectly together for a southern European feel that makes this sandwich a touch more exotic than a boring old classic club!

Is it summer where you are? Add some seasonal freshness with slices of tomato and a leyer of fresh spinach! Or, add some protein with a slice or two of low-fat mozzarella. Skip the mozzarella for a vegan treat, but no matter how you make your veggie club sandwich, remember to toast your whole grain bread for a combination of textures that are the finishing touch to this delicious, gourmet sandwich.
