This sandwich is an easy and tasty way of eating something filling and healthy. It features nutty quinoa, the nutritional powerhouse grain, fresh bell pepper with lots of vitamins and dairy for the protein and calcium. Don't let all this health talk scare you, though, its also just plain yummy!

This was a really great sandwhich. I enjoyed it immensely. I used a bit more quinoa for the sandwhich, but it didn't change any of the taste or texture. Since I didn't know what to do with the spices, I mixed it in with the cream cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse your quinoa well and if preferred toast it before cooking it (for directions to do this see recipe #16399).
  2. Place quinoa and veggie broth in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until tender (about 20 minutes). If there's liquid left, drain it off. Allow to cool.
  3. Meanwhile combine bell pepper, cheese, basil, pepper and shredded havarti cheese. When quinoa is cool, add it to the cream cheese mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Spread about 1-2 tbs of the cream cheese quinoa mix on 3 of the bread slices. Top with iceberg lettuce if using and then top with remaining bread slice. If you like slice diagonally into smaller sandwiches. Enjoy!
