After almost 6 months of lock down & home schooling, my kids will be going back to school in September. Having 3 young kids, I always keep planning for next days school lunches, as I pack homemade lunch boxes for them.

So, here is one such recipe which I tried, and felt it can be easily made in the mornings. These, Grilled Zucchini (Courgette) Vegan Sandwich, are a great hit with my kids! Even, my husband enjoyed them well.

These sandwiches greatly fits in for breakfast, weekday quick dinners, kids packed lunch boxes and family picnics.

Possible alterations you could make:

  • Instead of Zucchini / Courgettes, you can even use Summer squash, Acorn squash, mellow (or) butternut squash.
  • I have used Plant Based butter & Plant Based cheese in this recipe. 
  • To make the recipe completely Whole Food Plant Based, just eliminate the butter & cheese completely. Instead use this green spread>> Avocado & Spinach Spread (Oil Free)  over the bread.

Health Benefits of this recipe:

Carrots are a great source of beta carotene, Vitamin K, folate, vitamin A & anti-oxidants.

Courgettes are AMAZING for the heart and carries great amounts of potassium that reduces blood pressure.

Most importantly, both carrots & zucchini (courgette) are quite low in carbs. Hence adding this recipe into my collection of  Weight Loss Food / Low Carb Recipes
