We've got hearty and delicious vegetarian sandwiches that will fuel you all afternoon. Enjoy fresh and healthy hummus and vegetables on whole grain bread, toasty panini, roasted vegetable wraps, and lots more.
Layer cheese, tomatoes, and fresh parsley on ciabatta bread and weigh the sandwich down with heavy cans to meld the flavors for at least an hour before seving. Drain some of the oil from a jar of sun-dried tomatoes and mix it with Dijon mustard to make a unique sandwich spread.
Begin with Thai-flavored baked tofu (available in natural foods stores and many supermarkets), and pile on roasted bell pepper and onion. Top it all off with a sweet-savory sauce made from peanut butter, honey, ginger, and sesame oil for spreading on the sandwich.
An oven-fried version of eggplant Parmesan tops crusty Italian bread to make a satsifying vegetarian sandwich. For an extra treat, brush the halved loaf of bread with garlic butter and brown under the broiler before adding the layers of tomato sauce, eggplant, and mozzarella.
A roasted version of ratatouille, the classic Provencal stew of eggplant, zucchini, onion, and tomatoes gets wrapped up with fresh mozzarella on whole-wheat lavash. Warm the assembled wraps under the broiler before rolling them up, or enjoy them cold as part of a picnic lunch.
Mix honey with grainy mustard to whip up the easy spread for sharp cheddar sandwiches on whole-wheat rolls. Soak sliced cucumbers in a mixture of cider vinegar, honey, bay leaves, mustard seeds, and fresh ginger to make quick pickles.
