Healthy Meets Tasty! A Summer Sandwich

Summer Veggie Sandwich recipe from ONIE

We have turned a sandwich into a special treat with summer squash and zucchini; some of the cheapest summer vegetables. I love this sandwich. It is yummy, light, and helps me eat my daily servings of veggies!  I picked up the veggies at my local farmers' market that accepts SNAP benefits.


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ yellow squash
  • ½ zucchini
  • 4 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1/4 cup hummus (any flavor)
  • Lettuce (optional)

*Makes 2 sandwiches Veggie sandwich recipes


  1. Slice zucchini and yellow squash into long, thin strips.   ONIE Project: Zucchini Sandwich Nutrition Facts
  2. Toss squash, and zucchini together with olive oil in bowl.
  3. Add vegetable mixture to frying plan.
  4. Sauté until slightly brown about 2- 4 minutes per side.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. Toast slices of bread.
  7. Spread hummus across toasted bread and top with sautéed vegetables.

ONIE Test Kitchen Tip: I used rosemary to season the potatoes instead of salt because some foods that we eat often have quite a bit of salt or sodium. Potatoes pair well with many herbs.
