Spinach Potato Sandwich / Aloo Palak Sandwich recipe is a quick and easy sandwich recipe. It is filling and delicious and perfect for breakfast or as a snack. Potato and spinach make for a delicious combination and with just a few spices this sandwich can be put together quickly.

So I end up making some bread sandwiches like capsicum tomato sandwich or carrot and paneer sandwich.

The stuffing is prepared and spread between two toasted bread slices. Kids will love this sandwich that has one of the most favorite veggies, potatoes along with the goodness of spinach. While I used whole wheat bread to make this sandwich healthier, you could use white bread.
Spinach is loaded with vitamin C and vitamin A. Also, this leafy vegetable is a great source of iron and dietary fiber and is good to be included in our diet. Lets move on to the recipe for easy and healthy spinach potato sandwich.
