Rainbow Power Sandwich (& 3 More Healthy Sandwich Ideas!)

  • Author: Lindsay Pleskot
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 sandwich 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


My Rainbow Power Sandwich is a quick and easy vegan sandwich packed full of fresh vegetables and creamy protein-packed hummus! Make this healthy sandwich or try any of the 3 other nutritious sandwich ideas in this post.


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1/2 cup hummus, store-bought or homemade
  • 1/41/3 avocado, sliced
  • salt & pepper
  • 23 leaves of lettuce, I used Inspired Greens butter lettuce
  • 1/4 of a red pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 carrot, ribboned (I used a potato peeler!)
  • 1/4 of a small green and/or yellow zucchini, thinly sliced into rounds
  • purple cabbage, thinly sliced (try pickled cabbage for an extra punch of flavor)
  • a few thin slices of red onion


  1. Toast your bread
  2. Remove bread from the toaster and spread the hummus on one slice.  Place the sliced avocado on the other and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Start layering your veggies onto the hummus side
  3. Close up your sandwich and cut in half or leave whole. Enjoy!


  • Cabbage: this is optional as buying a whole large cabbage just for this recipe may not make sense. If you do opt for the cabbage, I like to slice the whole thing up and add to noodle stir-fries, salads, or make quick pickles to have on hand (delish in bowls, salads, tacos and sandwiches/wraps)
  • Vegetables:
    • Not gonna lie, I chose these vegetables specifically for the color but almost any vegetable would work in here! Mushrooms, sprouts, radishes, cucumber, tomatoes (ok I know this is a fruit!) are a few others that would be great in here!
    • If you have the time, roast the vegetable for extra flavor!
