    This recipe was awesome! I am always looking for whole food recipes to pin and share and try with my 90/10 nutrition challenge groups (www.tribasetraining.com/nutrition). This fit perfectly and was a big hit. Highly recommended. I did a bunch of Martha's veggie sandwiches one week and actually loved them all...big fan of veggie sandwiches now.
