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
Thinly slice the cuc. Spread the cream cheese on. Layer ingredients, then sprinkle with pepper. Voila.
Tea time #2: Egg Salad
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:
-white onion, sliced thin
Layer ingredients and heat until cheese is gooey and delicious.
