Vegetarian Baguette Recipe

With fresh veggies, feta cheese, and chopped walnuts piled high on a crusty whole grain baguette this vegetarian sandwich recipe is divine!

I slather mine with stone ground mustard making a delicious and unique combination of fresh flavors. This simple recipe is fast and easy to throw together when you’re short on time.

I like adding walnuts on top because they have a rich nutty flavor, and are an excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are a special type of protective fat that the body can’t make on its own.

Great for your health and a super tasty vegetarian baguette sandwich that is perfect to pack for a picnic!

Why is a vegetarian baguette such a good idea?

  • Vegetarian food usually doesn’t contain the proteins that other sandwiches do like beef or turkey which is great for plant-based, vegans, and vegetarians.
  • A vegetarian baguette may be more cost effective if you’re on a budget since it’s often cheaper to buy vegetables than meat.
  • A vegetarian baguette may be a smarter lunch option for you if you’re trying to watch your weight or are on a diet, since it’s lower in calories and fat than other sandwiches.
  • A vegetarian sandwich with feta cheese will keep you satisfied, as cheese has fat, a healthy dose of calcium, and protein.
  • A vegetarian sandwich with chopped walnuts will keep you fuller longer, since it has a good dose of Omega-3’s.
  • The ingredients are also rich in fiber, which is important for digestion and weight management.
