our classic veggie sandwich

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.


2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread
chipotle mayo
guacamole or avocado slices
2 slices of Celebration Roast *
2-3 thin cucumber slices
2 slices of tomato
monterey jack cheese
sunflower sprouts
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.

    You inspired me to buy my first celebration roast and try this sandwich. Great blog and very helpful to a new vegetarian! Thanks for sharing your creativity and love of food.

      i usually have a batch of chipotle puree in the fridge that we use as our house chile to add a little kick to stuff. just add chipotle to a tablespoon of mayo and we are good to go. the ambitious route would have me making mayo or aioli from scratch, which is more of sometimes thing.
