Cream Cheese + Veggie Sandwich

This was inspired by a tasty sandwich that I had nearly 10 years ago in a busy, little, independent sandwich shop. It's pretty quick to throw together and doesn't involve a lot of prep work, which is nice. Plus, the sunflower seeds add an interesting layer of texture and an unexpected, but delicious, bit of crunch.

Recipe: Cream Cheese + Veggie Sandwich
(serves one)

2 slices bread
Cream cheese or Toufutti Better Than Cream Cheese
Cucumber, thinly sliced
Tomato, sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
Mixed lettuce
Alfalfa sprouts
Sunflower seeds, small handful

1.) Spread a generous layer of cream cheese on each slice
of bread.
2.) Place the cucumber slices on the bottom slice of bread, followed by the lettuce, tomato, red onion, and sprouts.
3.) Sprinkle the sunflower seeds on top of the cream cheese on the other slice of bread.
4.) Close the sandwich, & viola, you're done!

*Optional: sprinkle some fresh herbs, like dill, on top of the cream cheese; you may also toast the bread, if you wish
