This meatless veggie sandwich is loaded with sweet roasted butternut squash steaks, crisp baby sprouts, briny pickled beets, cream avocado and a tangy cilantro and chive homemade yogurt spread between two slices of toasted multigrain bread. 

Don't like greek yogurt? Swap out the chive cilantro yogurt spread for some crumbled goat cheese or some feta cheese. Want a little more protein? Try adding adding freshly sliced rotisserie chicken or smoked turkey breast - both options would pair perfectly with the ingredients from this sandwich.
