Whole Foods Market is a pillar of the natural foods industry. For more than two decades now, it has served as the focal point of healthy eating not only for Americans but also the countries that it has expanded to.
Offering nothing but clean, unprocessed food to the masses since 1980, the company’s natural food selections became an instant hit. Today, Whole Foods has stores in every state as well as in some countries abroad. This is a testament that more and more people want to be healthy.
On-the-go meals and lunches are some of the more popular items in the Whole Foods Market’s menu. They grow increasingly popular as the summer approaches. Among them, sandwiches rank towards the top.
They are not only healthy but delicious, convenient and portable. However, with an array of sandwiches to choose from, it gets confusing, especially who can’t decide what they want. To remedy this, here are five specialty sandwiches, as well as suggested ingredient combination, that must be tried.
Grilled Summer Squash and Brie Sandwich
This mouth-watering-treat involves zucchinis and squash, which were brushed with olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper and then grilled. Both the grilled zucchini and squash are then placed on top of grilled bread, which was rubbed then rubbed by garlic whilst being roasted.
The whole thing is topped with Brie and slices of cheese, which are melted to coat the sandwich. A lovely meal for both vegans and even meat-lovers.
Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwich
For those who do not want to go full-vegan with their sandwich, the tarragon chicken salad is a good fit. Cooked chicken, cut into half-inch cubes are combined with tarragon, pepper, mustard, almonds, onions, mayonnaise and celery.
The mixture is then placed on top of bread slices and topped with tomato and lettuce. This is a refreshing sandwich that fits a healthy diet.
Smoked Salmon Sandwiches with Cream Cheese and Chives
It’s so easy to prepare and it can either be served right away or wrapped and refrigerated. Every bite is a slice of heaven.
Grilled Goat Cheese, Asparagus and Prosciutto Sandwich
This is one of the tastier pan-fried sandwiches, with such healthy inclinations as well. Seasoned and roasted asparagus is placed on top of goat cheese, which was spread over slices of bread. On top of the asparagus are little bits of prosciutto.
The whole assembly is then covered in another slice of bread with spread pesto onto on it. This marriage of ingredients is then pan-fried in olive oil until golden brown. The whole thing is a joy to look at and a proper meal for an empty stomach.
Egg Salad Sandwiches
A simple and pocket-friendly sandwich to prepare. Grated hard-boiled eggs are mixed with mustard, mayonnaise, salt, pepper and relish. The mixture is then refrigerated and spread over slices of bread.
The fine sandwich filling allows for further curation of the sandwich. It can easily be cut into any shape, which is perfect for parties or just additional motivation to eat for picky kids.
