Even if your school days are long behind you, there's something about autumn that screams back to school-and back to bagged lunches. But if you tend to favor veggies over meat, figuring out something healthy and filling to pack week after week can be a tough task. That's why we've rounded up 10 creative veggie-filled sandwich recipes from bloggers we love. So give your peanut butter and jelly habit a rest and get packing!

BBQ Tempeh Sandwich

Pack a napkin: Barbecue is never neat and this sandwich is no exception. But when you're biting into tempeh slathered in a sriracha-spiked sauce, you'll be too happy to notice.

Smashed Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Scoop this salad-which tastes like hummus-between two slices of wheat bread, for a vegetarian take on tuna- and egg-salad sandwiches…without the fishy or eggy smell. (Your cubemates will thank you!)

Veggie Caprese with Olive Pesto

An olive and almond pesto elevates this sandwich from a simple stack of veggies and cheese between two slices of bread to a restaurant-worthy creation. Adapt the recipe with your favorite in-season vegetables for a sandwich that works all year round. (Here are more pesto recipes that don't involve pasta.)

Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Sandwiches

If anyone can think of two foods that go together better than goat cheese and beets, we'd love to try them. Buy pre-roasted beets to cut the cook time for this recipe to practically nothing.

Vegetarian Banh Mi

This Vietnamese sandwich (below), filled with spiced tofu and doused with flavorful condiments, packs as much or as little heat as you'd like. And the tofu and eggs combo is high in protein to keep you full through the afternoon.

Greek Salad Sandwich

This handheld version of a classic Greek salad is under 300 calories. Pair it with a piece of fruit and you've got a tasty, waistline-friendly lunch. (Related: Healthy Greek Recipes That Will Transport You to the Mediterranean)

Black Bean and Plaintain Arepas Sandwiches

When you're craving something flavorful but need to make it quick, try these arepas which can come together in 30 minutes flat. With smoky black beans, caramelized plantains, and homemade guacamole, they won't disappoint.

Green Goddess English Muffin Sandwich

To make this unique sandwich, spread one half of your toasted English muffin with super-healthy green tea matcha butter. Then add avocado, baby spinach, cucumber, and sprouts, and top with the other half of the muffin.

Butternut Squash and Balsamic Onion Sandwich

Hearty butternut squash and tangy balsamic onions make a sandwich filling that is savory and sweet at the same time. Leave off the cheese to make it vegan.

Crispy Tofu Sandwiches With Peanut Ginger Sauce

These Thai-inspired wraps are way healthier than last night's leftover Pad Thai. Plus, the creamy peanut-ginger sauce is a great recipe to have in your back pocket for salads, dipping, and more. (For a lower-carb option, check out these keto sandwiches.)

Edamame Avocado Salad Sandwich

A cross between avocado toast and edamame hummus, the creamy filling to this sandwich (below) is packed with protein and healthy fats. Wasabi gives it a nice kick-balance it out with a few slices of cucumber.
