If you are a veggie lover like me, then there is no doubt in my mind that this looks mighty tasty to you!  I am about to share with you a simple recipe for a simple sandwich.  But, please do not let the word “simple” fool you.  This sandwich is, by no means, lacking in taste.  The simplicity of toasted bread combined with roasted vegetables and a zesty bean spread result in BIG flavor!

Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with White Bean Spread

*Adapted from a recipe in the April/May 2013 Vegetarian Times magazine.

Servings: Makes 4 sandwiches


olive oil cooking spray
1 small zucchini, sliced on a diagonal
1/2 eggplant, sliced on a diagonal
1/2 small yellow onion, cut into half moons
1 bell pepper, sliced into strips (I used red and orange)
fine sea salt
black pepper
garlic powder
onion powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 15 oz can white cannelini beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
fresh spinach
tomato slices
8 pieces whole wheat bread


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray 2 foil-lined baking sheets with olive oil spray.

2. Line baking sheets with zucchini, eggplant, onion, and peppers.  Spray with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and coriander.  Roast the vegetables for approximately 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown and slightly crispy.  Flip the vegetables halfway through the roasting process.

3. While the vegetables are roasting, combine the minced garlic, beans, lemon juice, and EVOO in a food processor and pulse until blended well.

4. Toast the slices of bread.

5. Compile the sandwiches in the following order: 1 slice of toasted bread, bean spread, roasted vegetables, 1 tomato slice, spinach leaves, and 1 slice of toasted bread.

Colorful, right?

Oh, and be sure that you cut your sandwich on a diagonal and serve it with a dill pickle spear…or 2! 😉

I love toasted bread and I thoroughly enjoy roasted veggies (which I am sure you already know!), but the star of this sandwich was definitely the bean spread.  I literally could have just eaten it by the spoonfuls.  And I may or may not have snuck a few spoonfuls while prepping the sandwiches ;).

And in case you have been wondering…this is the same bean spread that I featured in a previous WIAW post back in June where I ate this for breakfast:

…a delicious sweet and savory combo of whole wheat toast, the white bean spread, smashed avocado, sea salt, and blackberry jam.  This was phenomenal!  If you don’t make these Roasted Vegetable Sandwiches, you at least MUST make the bean spread!  It is awesome on pretty much any sandwich creation, makes the perfect vegetable dip, and is just down right delicious by the spoonful.  Go make it! 😉

    Yum! This looks like the perfect summer sandwich.
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog July 8, 2013, 10:34 pm
    This looks so good! I think it would make the perfect lunch sandwich with a side of fresh summer fruit.
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats July 8, 2013, 11:19 pm
    Yum that looks delicious :) Is it a bit strange to say that I just ate my lunch and it reminded me of you because it was so full of veggies? I had a baked potato with chopped avocado, tomatoes, artichokes, cheese, capers and cashew nuts.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 9, 2013, 7:17 am
      That is too funny..and flattering! ;) And your baked potato sounds seriously awesome. I LOVE artichokes and anything with avocado is amazing. Plus, topping it with cashews sounds delicious and is something that I would never have thought to do.
      • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats July 10, 2013, 2:09 am
        Me either until I was in the shop and they had a huge bowl of cashews and when they asked me I was like YES and they put a massive scoop of them on it.
  • Julia July 8, 2013, 11:29 pm
    I can always go for roasted veggies and white bean spread sounds wonderful!
  • swissfitchick July 9, 2013, 2:28 am
    I think I would eat that bean spread with a spoon before it makes it on the bread lol! Sounds so delicious!
  • jessielovestorun July 9, 2013, 3:14 am
    This is like the perfect summer sandwich!!
  • Christine @ Gotta Eat Green July 9, 2013, 7:19 am
    Mm this looks great! I love white bean spread/hummus. I bought it for the first time by mistake a few weeks ago (thinking it was chickpea hummus). It was a wonderful surprise.. I actually loved it! I'll have to try to make a homemade version.
  • The Sketched Chef July 9, 2013, 7:24 am
    This looks really great ! The combinations are perfect !
  • Andrea @Pencils and Pancakes July 9, 2013, 7:33 am

    Roasted veggies are the best! This looks delicious!
  • Katherine July 9, 2013, 8:25 am
    Your blog always makes me crave veggies, which is rare! I really really want to try this! I've been really into using beans for really random things lately (Brownies, blondies, spreads, etc), so I love reading about new ways that people are using beans! You come up with the coolest meals!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 9, 2013, 10:09 am
      I am glad that I make you crave veggies! I love hearing that! I REALLY need to trying making brownies/blondies with beans! The concept is so cool to me.
  • Mandy @ The Running Herbivore July 9, 2013, 8:31 am
    I am one hundred percent trying this! I'm obsessed with roasted vegetables and any kind of beans. In sandwich form?!?! HEAVENLY!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 9, 2013, 10:09 am
      Everything in sandwich form is great, right?? ;) Please let me know what you think of this one!
  • jumpeatrun July 9, 2013, 8:34 am
    Seriously, nothing really beats a good veggie sandwich. It's basically my go to anytime I can't decide what to eat!
  • kimathungryhealthygirl July 9, 2013, 9:13 am
    I absolutely love the idea of the white bean spread, rather than mayo. And I can't wait to recreate the sweet and savory combination at the bottom of your post. I'm bookmarking this for when I have white beans!
  • Laurie @ Love, Laugh, Laurie July 9, 2013, 9:25 am
    Roasted veggie sandwiches are my absolute favorite! I love them and I can't wait to make this!
  • Alexis July 9, 2013, 9:42 am
    Roasted veggies and a delish spread on toasted bread sounds PERFECT! Lunch is calling!
  • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies July 9, 2013, 9:52 am
    I've actually been super craving some kind of sandwich with white bean spread lately, and I'm not even sure why because I've never had one before. This looks SO GOOD.
  • eatgreatbegreat July 9, 2013, 10:13 am
    Mmmm...I definitely love a good veggie sandwich! This one looks great and I love the sound of the white bean spread!
  • makingthymeforhealth July 9, 2013, 12:30 pm
    I love white beans and use them all of the time on sandwiches and such. I really love this sandwich you made and I wish I had it for lunch today! It looks so darn good!
  • MegBek July 9, 2013, 12:37 pm
    You know, I gotta give it to you - you are the MOST creative when it comes to putting together different types of food. It's so cool that you can mix so many different flavors. Wish I was as excited by mixing flavors, haha! <3
  • katalysthealth July 9, 2013, 12:38 pm
    Its funny, Im not a huge veggie fan, unless they are roasted. One of my favorite meals is the roasted veggie pita at this greek place near me. Oh my gosh its so freaking good!! And I looooove roasted eggplant! Ever tried it on pizza?!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl July 9, 2013, 1:25 pm
      Roasting is the definitely the best cooking process when it comes to veggies! I HAVE tried roasted eggplant on pizza! And you are right...SO tasty!
  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles July 9, 2013, 12:44 pm
    I'm on such a hummus/bean spread kick right now, it's seriously good with everything. And sandwiches are absolutely best served with a pickle spear ;-)
  • Sarah July 9, 2013, 1:27 pm
    oh yum. white beans are so under appreciated. :)
  • jessiebearwhat July 9, 2013, 1:27 pm
