I did not used to be a big fan of sandwiches. I didn't care much for PBJammins growing up and fake-meaty sammiches don't do it for me either.
But I have found a few sammiches that I quite like. Fried sauerkraut and onions (a friend called me a "nasty! A nasty vegan, but nasty in a good way!" for eating that) on toasted rye with a smear of mustard is nice. I like pecan butter and unsweetened jam (strawberry or blueberry) -- kind of like a PBJ. Avocado, onion, and nutritional yeast is good (side note: mix nooch + mustard --> amazingly delicious sammich spread, I learned that from a sandwich at a Seattle market). Pan-fried portabello mushroom (with garlic and herbs) and rocket (arugula to you yanks) is divine. Cucumber and/or tomato with red onion, salt, and pepper (great with a side of black olives if my toddler doesn't snitch them all).
But my favourite sandwiches (at the moment, at least) are hummous. My variations are endless, behold:
- rocket (arugula) or watercress
- red or green onions
- jalapeños (pickled or fresh)
- avocado slices
- thinly-sliced radishes
- thinly-sliced bell peppers (I prefer green, but everybody else seems to like red the best)
- roasted veggies
- sprouts! (Thanks for reminding me to mention sprouts, TNT!)
