Easy, simple and delicious, this classic veggie sandwich is at the top of our list. If you are look for easy ways to get more veggies in your diet this veggie sandwich will win you over.
It’s been a little over a week since Ryan and I have started our plant-based diets. I think our bodies are still in an adjustment phase, but so far we like the results we are feeling. I told you in one of my previous posts how Ryan lives and breathes meat and cheese. He’s been doing a lot better about his willingness to try different foods. He even loved the lentil tacos I made! But when I told him these sandwiches were on the list I saw him flinch. If there’s anything Ryan loves, it’s a good sandwich…stacked with meat and cheese. Followed by more meat and cheese. But after he devoured this sandwich, he was on board.
What made him love the sandwich so much? Honestly, it was the balsamic vinegar and pepper. Good flavor is crucial to the makings of any sandwich. This is even more true when you’re dealing with, let’s face it, super bland vegetables. The balsamic vinegar helped keep the sandwich moist while packing a punch with it’s sweet tang. While it’s no slice of tangy cheddar, it still makes the taste buds do a little dance, make a little love, and get down tonight. Okay, did I go too far?
I will leave you with these words from a very wise cartoon Tiger, “You gotta try new foods cause they might taste goooood!” Uga-muga!
