Veg sandwich recipe – A simple mixed vegetable sandwich for breakfast or evening snack you can make under 15 mins. This veg sandwich is so delicious, sort of healthy & is devoid of sauces, chutney or cheese. Most sandwich recipes call for some or the other sauces, spreads or cheese. I do not stock up on any bottled spreads or sauces as most of these come with loads of creepy ingredients & additives to extend the shelf life.

It is hard for me to make any sandwich that has these ingredients listed as I never have them in hand. Whenever my people at home ask me for a good sandwich this is something that comes to my mind instantly.

This veg sandwich recipe is made without a grill, toaster or oven. It is just made on a pan/ tawa or griddle in the simplest way. I have not used any sauce or green chutney.

So it is good even to make on a busy weekday morning for breakfast as it needs only a handful of ingredients that we mostly have in the pantry.

I have used carrots, onions, corn, beans & bell pepper. You can also use some boiled potatoes, sliced or cheese if you like. Tomato is used for binding the veggies, if skipped the filling will turn out dry.

To bind the veggies, you will need to either use cheese or grill it in a sandwich maker.

How to Make Veg Sandwich (Stepwise Photos)

Toast the bread

1. Smear butter or ghee on the bread and toast them until golden on one side and until firm on the other side. While you toast, chop or slice the veggies thinly.

2. Heat oil on a pan, Saute cumin until they crackle. Add garlic and fry until a good smell comes out. I did not have garlic so i used ginger garlic paste.

3. Add chopped, mashed or pureed tomato. Sprinkle salt and mix.

4. Cover and cook on a medium heat until it turns completely soft and mushy.

5. You can add chilli powder now and saute for a minute. I did not use it since i used green chilies in the next step.

6. Add veggies. Saute on a medium to high flame until they are partially cooked. I do not cover and cook since mine gets cooked quickly. If your carrots are not tender, you may need to cover and cook. Sauteing on a high flame lends a smoky flavor.

7. Add pav bhaji masala or garam masala and coriander leaves. Pav bhaji masala works very well for this, if you do not have you can use kitchen king masala or garam masala like me. Adjust the salt and make sure the veggies are at least partially cooked.

8. Place the toasted slices and transfer the veggies over them. If you wish to have cheese , then sprinkle now.

9. Place another slice of bread. Press down gently. If using cheese, toast it on a low heat without burning until the cheese melts. Alternately you can also grill in a sandwich maker.

Tips to make veg sandwich recipe

  1. You can use any quick cook mix vegetables of your choice. This veg sandwich can also be made with a single veggie like carrot or bell pepper or sweet corn alone. You can also use the prechopped mix veggies from the frozen section.
  2. Feel free to use any cheese of your choice to make a cheese veggie sandwich. I sometimes use the mozzarella cheese or paneer in this.
  3. You can also use any chutney like this green chutney if you have in hand. Just spread it over the bread and then add the sauteed vegetables.
  4. For healthier option make the veg sandwich with brown bread or whole grain bread.
  5. You can also make this in a sandwich toaster.

How to Make Veg Sandwich

  • For stove top grilling – Smear butter over the bread slices and toast them until golden on the outer side and until crisp on the inner side. Transfer the prepared veggies. If desired add cheese at this step.
  • Cover with another slice of bread and press down. If using cheese, turn on the flame to very low and heat until the cheese melts. Press down the bread with a wooden spoon. This helps the bread to stick to the stuffing. You can also grill this in a sandwich maker
  • For grilling in veg sandwich in toaster – Butter the bread slices on the outer side. On the inner side spread the veggie mix and cover with another slice. Grill it in a sandwich toaster until golden.

Oh my!! I approximated this recipe as best I could and it was fabulous! I skipped the onion, just used Campari tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, canned corn, green chilis and frozen butter beans. Cumin, turmeric, garam masala and some kinda herb my Indian neighbor gave me from her garden. No cheese. My goodness I can’t wait to make it again. How could it be so good?

Very easy veg sandwich. Tasted good

5 stars
Am I supposed to toast both sides in the first step with inner side being toasted more and outer side being toasted less? Also, when I try on the tawa, only portion of the bread which is near the centre of the tawa gets browned properly and the one near the edge is less toasted so I am able to do only one slice at a time. Any tips to get uniform toasting of two slices a the same time on the tawa? My tawa is totally flat and not curved at all

Good
