Hearty and Tasty Vegetarian Sandwich

Liz Lemon once said “I believe that all anyone really wants in this life is to sit in peace and eat a sandwich.” When has Liz Lemon ever been wrong? And that is why we bring you this hearty and tasty vegetarian sandwich.

I know what you are thinking…you might not need a food blog to teach you how to make a sandwich. But I’ve been a vegetarian for years and I almost never make sandwiches at home. So maybe we should spread the word about homemade vegetarian sandwiches.

Rewind to a couple weeks ago – my husband and I were playing rock, paper, scissors to see who would pick up dinner from our favorite sandwich shop (why did I chose scissors? It never wins), and I realized I could probably save myself a trip in the cold if I made the sandwiches myself. Once I checked the bakery section of the grocery store and learned they sold individual sized subs, the plan set in motion.

This hearty and tasty vegetarian sandwich is perfect because it is so easy to make. I love it when I can make a hot, delicious dinner in less than 20 minutes. The real icing on the cake? This recipe requires very few dishes. Clean up is a breeze!

We love this recipe because it is so filling and satisfying. Even your pickiest meat eater will love this sandwich. The fresh veggies and leave you feeling full and energized.
