80--- Ultimate Veggie Sandwich

I eat these, like, daily.  So I thought that I would finally post them.  Nothing special.  Just the best veggie sandwich ever.

Ultimate Veggie Sandwich
Serves 1

1 Everything Bagel Thin, toasted
2 Tbsp low fat canned refried beans (or you can make your own as I have done here)
1/4 avocado, mashed
1 Tbsp chopped roasted red pepper
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/2 vine ripe tomato, sliced
1/4 cucumber, sliced
3 large spinach leaves, washed well
1 slice swiss cheese (or other strong cheese)
Dash vegetable seasoning

*You may layer the ingredients as you wish.  However, if you follow my method things stay in place a bit better.  

Mix roasted red pepper into refried beans and spread mixture on one half of the toasted bagel thin.  Sprinkle lightly with vegetable seasoning.  Top with onion slices, spinach, and cheese slice. 

Spread mashed avocado on the other half of the bagel thin, sprinkle lightly with vegetable seasoning, then top with tomato slices, and then cucumber slices.

Place halves together and enjoy.

  1. The flavors in this are delicious! I did have some issues with the insides squishing out, but I'll attribute that to user error. Can't wait to make it again!
