The next time you’re trying to figure out what to eat, why not just grab your favorite healthy bread and pile it high with all the colorful produce options that are already in your fridge? Raw veggies might not be the typical star sandwich ingredient, but one food blogger is proving you don’t need anything else to create a mouthwatering masterpiece.

Caitlin Shoemaker, the vegan recipe developer behind From My Bowl, recently posted a lunch option that’s bound to give both your body and your Instagram feed a boost. The concept of her rainbow veggie sandwich is simple: Combine the crispiest, crunchiest, and healthiest greens—and, you know, other hues too!—in order to make getting your daily vitamin and nutrient fix more enjoyable. “I love to show people eating their veggies can be both fun and delicious—and these sandwiches check both of those boxes,” Shoemaker tells me.

“[The sandwich is] easy to make, full of fiber to keep you full, and can easily be customized to use whatever produce you have in your fridge.” —Caitlin Shoemaker of From My Bowl

To quite literally taste the rainbow, all you need to do is spread some creamy hummus on your bread of choice, then stack up some thinly sliced produce in the ROYGBIV order. Shoemaker uses beets, tomato, carrot, yellow bell pepper, butter lettuce, power greens (like spinach and kale), and cucumber, but she says the recipe can shift to fit your preferences. “[The sandwich is] easy to make, full of fiber to keep you full, and can easily be customized to use whatever produce you have in your fridge,” she says.

What results is quite possibly the most nutritious sandwich you’ll ever bite into—and one that reduces food waste in the process by helping you finish up your grocery haul.
