OMG this is so easy, just put in the leftover grilled or baked vegetables and brush them over with sweet chilly sauce and the sandwich is done! Here I’ve got some zucchini, sweet potato slices, and a bit of fresh capsicum. Recommend to put in some grated carrots for some extra crunch though!
Goat Cheese, Roasted Red Pepper, & Sun-dried Tomato Chicken Sandwich
This sandwich is easy and so delicious! I used leftover herb roasted chicken from dinner the other night. Start with everything French bread (toasted) spread with plain Goat cheese on the bottom, chopped sun dried tomatoes on the top, (the kind packed in olive oil), the cooked chicken, lots of sliced roasted red peppers, (char under the broiler, cover and steam, then peel and chop), mesclun greens, a drizzle with Balsamic vinegar de Modena (this stuff is delicious!) and garnish with peperoncini, and my favorite Castelvetrano olives. Yum!
Two slices of whole wheat bread, one put in the toaster oven briefly to melt the vegan cheese, 3 pieces of Trader Joe’s vegan chicken, a pickle, hummus, ketchup, and vegan buffalo sauce (from a local restaurant)….. really helps satisfy my buffalo chicken craving :)
(I’m not sure whether I’ve sent this before, but there are just a ton of good ideas I’ve found lately…)
Basic nostalgic lunchbox sandwich:
- sliced bread
- sliced cheese
- sliced ham
Just butter the bread generously and add ham and cheese. This is the simplest recipe ever, but it hits all of my nostalgia buttons. Plus, you can make it a day in advance and it’ll still be just as tasty the next day, even if it stays out of the fridge.
Healthy and crunchy af (best consumed immediately):
- sliced bread
- cream cheese
- any seasonings you want
Toast the bread (and if you don’t have a toaster, a tray in the oven or a frying pan with no oil on the stove works just as well). Cut cucumber into slices. Add cream cheese to the bread, then cucumber, and season it to taste. Boom, done.
Crunchy, cheesy goodness:
- any kind of soft bread
- cream cheese (if you have access to requeijão, even better!)
- any roasted nuts/grains. My favorite is salty soybeans.
Add a generous layer of cream cheese to the bread. Sprinkle nuts. More cream cheese. Yum.
Italian fave (seriously, this is my favorite thing to eat, ever):
- bread with a crunchy crust (like a roll, or a baguette, or ciabatta, you get what I mean)
- sliced or shredded cheese
- seasonings: olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, salt, oregano (obviously you can modify this)
Chop up the tomato on a plate and season it generously. Let it sit while you cut open the bread and add a TINY bit of olive oil. Add tomato bits to the bread, then cheese, then more tomato bits. All the seasoning that’s at the bottom of the plate, pour it onto the other side of the bread (the lonely side with nothing on it). Close it up and enjoy!
