#TBT: Where them veggie sandwiches at?

When’s the last time you had a really good veggie sandwich?

I used to work in a cafe that had daily lunch specials, and one was a veggie croissant. Essentially, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, and green peppers on a croissant with mayo and mustard. You know how they always say “less is more?” That was the philosophy working here. Something about it worked wonderfully, and it was always a hit.

A wise woman (well, more like one of my best friends) once said, “Veggie burgers and sandwiches are usually better because they have to make up for the lack of meat with flavour.” And she’s so right.

Of course, a veggie sandwich can become less healthy than a BLT real quick if you’re not careful. But generally speaking, making a sandwich up of just veggies is such an easy way to get more fresh vegetables into your diet, and feel satisfied without the greasy, heavy feeling of a burger.

Figure one, this sandwich.

Hello. Is it me you’re looking for?

Look at this beauty. Red Beard Coffee delivers. It’s just red pepper, avocado, basil, arugula, balsamic dressing and chipotle mayo on rye. And let me tell you, the combination of flavour would have just been muddled by deli meat. This is perfect as is.

If you need more convincing, look at this one.

fyi: I started the hashtag #beautifulsandwichesinbeautifulplaces because of this photo. Please join in on the conversation so I can see all the other beautiful sandwiches out there.

Avocado, mozzarella cheese, tomato, spinach, and hummus on a ciabatta bun. If you’ve never had a sandwich from Terra, you’re missing out big time.

Let’s all embrace the meat-free sandwiches in our lives, they do so much for us!
