What goes in my sandwich?

Fresh Zucchini, carrots and scallions are grated and added to the sandwich. A little bit of cream cheese to help it bind. Salt, pepper and some fresh herbs are added for flavour. I have not used any butter in this, but instead healthy avocado as a spread.

As fresh and raw zucchini and carrots are used, salt should be added last. Else the veggies will release water. Spreading butter or avocado will help the bread not get soggy so do not skip that step. 

Raw or Toasted Sandwich?

One can slightly sautee the zucchini and carrots. I like the raw taste and am happy with a raw veggie sandwich. The sandwich can even be toasted. I have tried both and I prefer it raw and not toasted.

Any type of bread can be used here. I have used seeded brown bread, but one can use any bread of choice.

Alterations to this sandwich

One can add grated beetroot to this sandwich something similar to this Beetroot and Carrot Yogurt Sandwich. Instead of Zucchini, acorn squash can be used too. 

Vegan substitutions for Cream Cheese

Vegans can substitute cream cheese with nut butter. Cashew butter will go perfectly here and add to taste as well as texture.

Alternate ways of using the filling

The filling can be used as-is for a salad. It can be served as coleslaw or as a topping in burger buns.

This sounds right up my street. One of my favourite sandwiches is a cheese and carrot one, but this is quite different. Looking forward to trying it.

Sound great, I love whats basically a twist on coleslaw - I just need my courgettes to hurry up and grow now! And when I say courgettes, I do mean courgette singular. My green fingers have not extended to the squash family this year!!!
