The moment we hear the word 'sandwich' there is a peculiar kind of curiosity as to what is the stuffing in it. Sandwiches are more popular during a lunch break in school and colleges, and the moment the lunch box is opened, all eyes start peeping into each other's boxes. The tastiest sandwiches are then shared by all the friends. There can be an infinite number of stuffing that can be used for making sandwiches be it sweet or savory.

This sandwich is a quick fix one and can be made with your choice of vegetables or even with what is available in your refrigerator. I like to prepare the stuffing the previous night so that the mornings can be much easier. If feeding vegetables to kids is a challenge, then using veggies as stuffing can be a good and healthy option.
