Veggie Pâté Sandwich with Mustardy Arugula

Hi folks.  You may have noticed that I'm on a bit of a sandwich kick.  I've come to believe that enjoyment of a good sandwich is vital to my emotional well-being.  So here's another idea to share, packed with loads of flavour and green things.  Make one for yourself, and make one to surprise a friend.  Nothing says "I love you, man" like a sexied up veggie pâté sandwich, they'll thank you for it.


1 Medium cucumber- cut as thinly as possible (or peeled into strips with a vegetable peeler)
1 box fresh alfalfa, sunflower, or other sprouts
Roasted red peppers cut into thin ribbons (optional)
 A few cups of fresh arugula
Juice of Half a Lemon
2 T olive oil
1 tsp deli mustard
Your preferred bread - I used pumpernickel.  

  • In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and a pinch of salt.
  • Spread a good thick spread of pâté on one of the pieces of bread.
  • Layer on the cucumbers, sprouts, and a crack or two of fresh pepper.
  • Toss arugula in dressing (use sparingly, it's pretty strong), and pile on top of everything else.
  • Eat!


  1. Oh my lord, this looks amazing. I'm 6 months pregnant, and have lost my way with healthy vegetarian sandwiches. Thank you for reeling me back in!

    1. Thanks Crystle, the pleasure is all mine :) And all the best to you in your final trimester.

  2. Looks delicious! I would use any kind of non-gluten bread because I am keeping a diet but I still want to treat myself with some veggie sandwich. Can't wait to try, thanks a lot for sharing!
