Vegetarian Lunches: Meatless Sandwiches

It's not easy eating a vegetarian lunch every day!! As a matter of fact, this meal is the true stumper for me- carrying around a salad or cup of soup is not so easy, and I really miss the days of sandwiches.... It was just so much easier to slap some bologna on a piece of bread and call it a meal. So, to fill in the blanks, I've started eating several meatless sandwiches, shared here. If you have some others, please comment and I will add them to the list- and the daily rotation. There just comes a point where PB & J wont cut it.....

1. Tea-time classic: Cucumber Sandwiches

These delicate sandwiches are really refreshing on a hot day!

roast red peppers
sliced bread, with crusts
black pepper
cream cheese

Thinly slice the cuc. Spread the cream cheese on. Layer ingredients, then sprinkle with pepper. Voila.

Tea time #2: Egg Salad

Hard-boiled eggs
dijon mustard

Hard boil the eggs and mash with a fork. Add in mayo and mustard to taste, generously salt and pepper. Mix in diced onion and celery, and generously dash with dried or fresh dill and chives.

Classic standby #3: Grilled cheese

I find american cheese on white toast quite bland and prefer this version instead:

-swiss cheese
-white onion, sliced thin
-plum tomato

Layer ingredients and heat until cheese is gooey and delicious.
