Easy Gluten-Free Veggie Sandwich

I know you’re all looking for healthy gluten-free lunch ideas, aren’t you?

It’s Back-to-School season and everyone from the 5 year old down the street to my corporate America neighbor wants a little yumminess for lunch tomorrow.

I just know it!

Well, before we dig into this sandwich, I’m going off on a little side note.

Just a tiny one.


I’ve been thinking a lot about goal setting lately and it seems that everyone I know who sets a goal- is attached to the outcome.

And I just think it’s interesting because it’s one thing to set a goal for yourself but it’s another to place your sense of value in how much you achieve.

Instead, I think doing the best we can at something … and then letting it go …. is the best way to look at goals.

I think it’s more about having faith and trust in ourselves rather than focusing on the perfect outcome.

Anyway, back to my sammie!

This gluten-free veggie sandwich is delish. It’s super simple to make and tastes amazing. Fresh. whole ingredients that will put a big smile on your face.

So, set a goal with yourself to create healthy lunches everyday this month – but don’t beat yourself up if you slip or if you choose an unhealthy option. Just get back on track the next day and think about why you chose those not-so healthy options the day before so that next time around… you’ll be armed and ready with one of these sammie’s in your bag to dig into and enjoy.

Have faith.

Believe me.

Everyone seems to have their own favorite sandwich and this one is surely mine.

It’s a life changer.

Or a lunch changer, hehehe.

And just simply the best.

O yea.

Hungry yet? I thought so. Get yourself ready for the best lunch date in years.

Ooh I LOVE a good veggie sammie and this one looks delish! BTW, I love the way you present your food. So pretty and earthy. Anyway, this makes me think a trip to Whole Foods might be in my immediate future.


Sharon September 9, 2013 at 2:45 pm

Which gluten free bread do you use? The sandwich looks great.


Amie September 9, 2013 at 2:56 pm

I love Canyon Bakehouse; they are my favorite gluten-free bread!


Sharon September 9, 2013 at 3:54 pm

Hi Amie,

Thanks for letting me know about the bread. I don’t know if it is available in stores in NYC so perhaps I will have to get it on the web.


Amie September 9, 2013 at 4:02 pm

Of course; ask your local Whole Foods Market or health food store to carry it. Rudi’s is great, too!


Donna Lobel September 10, 2013 at 11:33 am

I hope I am commenting on the correct post for the cookbook giveaway – if not woops :) This sandwich looks so tasty. And I agree Canyon Bakehouse is by far my favorite as well…the texture is so good you don’t even have to toast it!

Would love to win the Naturally Sweet & Gluten Free cookbook! I love to bake and since I am allergic to eggs and gluten and choose to live refined sugar free it would be


Marina September 14, 2013 at 9:15 am

I would love to win NS & GF cookbook! I’m just starting the journey of going dairy free in addition to GF and it would definitely come in handy!

Hi, Your book sounds quite interesting. As a Realtor I like to surprise my clients with some home made goodies sometimes. It’s difficult to come up with some really nice recipes for my clients who have food allergies. Thanks!


Todd Bliss September 14, 2013 at 11:49 am

I would like to win the cookbook and I agree on the goal setting you don’t have to be perfect and if you slip up let it go and don’t dwell on it and start over

Udi’s bread has always been my favorite bread butCanyonhouse is good too.


Adrienne @ Whole New Mom September 14, 2013 at 12:16 pm

LOVE this kind of sandwich. Please enter me in the giveaway :)! Thanks!


Kristine September 14, 2013 at 12:25 pm

Looks super yummy!! Great giveaway for a sweet looking cookbook too!!!!


Suzanne Lobel September 14, 2013 at 2:10 pm

Like my sister (see above post) I also have allergies to gluten, eggs, and dairy and choose to not consume refined sugars, the “Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free” cookbook would be perfect. And, I’ll even share it with my sister! Thanks, Amie.


Nicole J. September 14, 2013 at 2:56 pm

Great ideas! You make it seem so simple…gives newbies like me the courage to try!


Deb E. September 14, 2013 at 4:35 pm

I like Glutino’s bread but I don’t have a toaster and not firing up the oven in the heat here in LA! Looks great though, untoasted too!


Marianne @ Ragdoll Kitchen September 14, 2013 at 8:05 pm

I would love the cookbook! I’ve been following Ricki Heller and her recipes are super! Thank you for the giveaway :)


Mina Joshi September 17, 2013 at 3:53 am

Your sandwich looks so delicious. I love sprouts but have never tried them in a sandwich. Love the way you have photographed your sandwich!!


Tamara Todd September 18, 2013 at 9:49 am

I love vegetables and I love sandwiches! Gotta try this, thanks for posting it. I want to win the cookbook giveaway. I need it.


cindy September 18, 2013 at 11:02 am

Thanks for the chances to win great stuff! Would so love the baking cook book. This was probably the most difficult area for my daughter as she found out she was gluten intolerant as she was making her way baking every cupcake in the Martha Stewart cupcake cookbook. She still makes them, she just adjusts accordingly.


Juana canton September 18, 2013 at 3:04 pm

I am a vegan/gluten free cookie company. I would love to send you some cookies to try.
