What's your favorite vegetarian sandwich?

I'm looking for some new ideas for a meatless sandwich.

  1. Sliced avocado, paper-thin sliced onion, mayo, and salt, on lightly toasted, very thin slices of whole-wheat bread. It has to be a perfect avocado and wonderful bread.

    1. Cold - sprouts, avocado, tomato, lettuce, provolone, on hearty wheat dijon mustard only.
      Hot- roasted garlic smear, basil aoili, and roasted eggplant, tomato, onion, with fontina on focaccia panini!

        By roasted garlic smear, do you mean just roasting a head of garlic and mashing it to a paste, or is there something special you do? I love roasted garlic! Both of your sandwiches sound like winners.

          Sounds like it might be a "shmear," or cream cheese flavored with roasted garlic. But just smearing roasted garlic around sounds tasty too.

            SorryI missed this! computer died last month, just now getting around again. This smear is roasted garlic or grilled mushed with olive oil and salt and pepper. Sometimes I add a little mayo, but my favorite even on a pizza is without the mayo. Gives sooo much flavor. I love it on o roasted pork tenderloin sandwich too...I am so hungry!

              Thanks chef chicklet! That roasted eggplant sandwich sounds great. Can't wait for eggplant season.

            That sounds unbelievably delicious. Normally I don't like sandwiches because I immediately think of yucky dry bread but this sounds amazing. Unfortunately I never have all those things in my kitchen at once...

              I buy sacks of garlic at Costco, we love our garlic. I seem to always buy sprouts (sort of think I crave dirt at times) and every week I purchase, basil, mint, cilantro, bags of onions/ and I always have provolone and fontina along with sandwich stuff. My herbs I've planted are doing well, just keeping the snails away from my basil is the new challenge. They better be careful or it's escargot for me.

          3. Grilled panino with grilled peppers, eggplant, and onions, marinated mushrooms, provalone, some arugula leaves. And a glass of Valpolicella.

              Whole Wheat sandwich bread, mayo, medium slices white onion, salt , tomato slice, more salt, fresh cracked pepper. YUM.

            2. Along the lines of hungry_pangolin, almost anything roasted, eggplant, red peppers, onions, etc. drizzled w/ olive oil and balsamic vinegar, maybe a little feta. Or a basic caprese, mozzarella, tomatoes, fresh basil on a panini. I also like wraps w/ salads w/ a variety of chopped vegetables, sometimes black beans, pico de gallo, corn, lime dressing.

              1. Dont forget cheese. I love cheeses of all kinds.

                  Yup! Cheese sandwiches are great, especially when you have the right blend of melty and creamy cheeses. My current favourite is Ewephoria (I think that's the name; it's a Holland sheep milk cheese), a smear of creamy hummus, and a tiny bit of adobo sauce sandwiched between two sliced of hearty bread then grilled. Add some jackfruit chips on the side, and it's a great vegetarian meal.
