You’ll find the “Classic Veggie Sandwich” in our menu most weeks. It is a household staple that we make with whatever we can pull together from the fridge in a flash. There is, of course, an ideal configuration. On a good day, like today, I have everything on hand to make it as it should be.
OUR CLASSIC VEGGIE SANDWICH
2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread
guacamole or avocado slices
2 slices of Celebration Roast *
2-3 thin cucumber slices
2 slices of tomato
monterey jack cheese
sprinkle of pepper
squeeze of lime
I like to put chipotle mayo on one slice and guacamole on the other piling all the fresh veggies onto the guac side. Celebration roast and cheese lives on the other side. Fresh sprinkle of pepper and a generous squeeze of lime give it a little pop.
* Celebration Roast from the Field Roast Company has become a fridge staple and the closest we come to meat substitutes. The celebration roast slices well for sandwiches and makes our classic veggie sandwich a little more substantive without making it too heavy a meal. Not sure how we survived before finding it a year or so ago.
Be kind. Be patient. Eat well.
