Butter-Bean Spread Roll-Up Sandwich

The EatingWell Diet (2007)

Your rating: None Average: 5 (34 votes)

This vegetarian sandwich is full of flavors and textures, and beans make it extra satisfying. We love the combination of onion, lettuce, fennel, carrot and sprouts, but equal amounts of whatever vegetables you like or have on hand will also work well.
