The Ultimate Veggie Sandwich

Hey guys! Happy New Year!!!

I featured this sandwich on my Instagram, and you guys seemed to enjoy it. So, I decided to add to my blog so you'll know what I used to create it. One thing I miss about eating meat is the simplicity of making a sandwich.

It was an immediate go-to when I wanted a quick lunch or if I just wanted to save some cash. Subway $5 footlongs were a life saver. I used to always order the Cold Cut Trio loaded with ham, salami, and bologna. I went to Subway so much that the employees already knew what I would order.

Obviously, I can't order a Cold Cut Trio and when I think back on it...that's a whole lot of meat. I struggled for a while with finding something to satisfy that sandwich craving until I went to Firehouse Subs. I ordered a veggie sub and fell in love with it because it filled me up just the same. But even better, I didn't feel sluggish after it. It immediately replaced my favorite sandwich from Subway, and made me realize that I can still enoy a good sandwich.

As always, most of the recipes I feature here can be mixed up however you please. This combination that I created was inspired by Firehouse Subs, but a lot more simple.

Serving Size: 1 sandwich
Veggie Sub Sandwich

Note: You can add as much or as little for these ingredients. I didn't use a specific amount. I eyeballed most of these that would fit into the hoagie bun.

  • Green Bell Pepper
  • Yellow Onion
  • Portabella mushroom
  • Tomato
  • Mayonnaise
  • Mustard
  • Garlic Powder
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Hoagie Bun


  • Begin by slicing your bell peppers, onions, mushroom, and tomatoes into thin slices
  • Prepare your hoagie bun by applying the mayo, mustard, Provolone cheese, and tomatoes
  • In a small frying pan, apply a small bit of vegetable oil to coat the pan and add your veggies. Stir occasionally so that all veggies get seared
  • Sprinkle your garlic powder over veggies. You an add as much or as little stirring in so all veggies are seasoned
  • Once veggies are tender you can begin filling into your hoagie bun. Apply more mustard or other dressings to your liking.
  • Dig in!

What I loved about this sandwich is that I felt full without feeling tired. I swear whenever I would eat that Cold Cut Trio I was ready for a nap. I don't get that way when creating this sandwich. I actually feel refueled and ready to get through the rest of the day. If you like, you can always pair this sandwich with a side of chips or some fruit.

The Firehouse sub sandwich actually uses a light Italian dressing on their veggie sub. If you want to dabble into that, you can do the same for more flavor. You can even toast your bread if you prefer. I'm pretty simple so this worked out just fine for me.
