Veggie Sandwich

It's Monday.

Normally I would post something ridiculous, like a dessert or a recipe containing precisely one pound of cheese.

But I'm not going to do that to you today.

I'm going to save those recipes for tomorrow and Wednesday.

Today, I'm just going to tell you about this veggie sandwich that I
like to eat.

It's good in every way.  I would say that it's good and good for you, but that corny phrase annoys me.  It makes me not want to eat whatever is being described.

My inspiration was Panera's Mediterranean Veggie sandwich.  That's what I usually get at Panera, seeing how it's the only sandwich under 1,200 calories on their menu.

I used to make this sandwich on regular bread, but then these things came out:

And these things are just perfect for this.  Surprising that they even contain 100 calories, seeing that they're translucent and all.  But for what they are, they really are pretty good.  If you like sawdust, that is.  Kidding.

Spread hummus on one side of the bread.  Be generous, since there isn't much to this sandwich.  I always use the cilantro version, but the roasted red pepper one would be delicious too.

And then layer on the veggies...starting with cucumbers

And tomatoes

And onions and red bell peppers

Do you like my star pattern I made with my bell pepper?

I did that just for you.

And a little bit of cheese.  Feta is best, but I was out.  So I used a slice of Swiss and that was a good choice.

Go make this so you can have Corn Chowder tomorrow.  As promised, it does have a pound of cheese in it.

Veggie Sandwiches
For one sandwich:

1 sandwich thins
Thin slices of cucumber
Thin slices of tomato
Thin slices of red onion
Thin slices of red bell pepper
Thin slice of feta cheese (or a few crumbles)

Generously spread hummus on one side of the bread.  Top with cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, bell peppers and feta cheese.

Oh boy, corn chowder! I'm sooooo excited. My mouth is watering. Can you send me a batch, please? You know I don't have the patience to make my own, and the can is just raunchy! Yes, I used an appropriate word.
I miss you,

I love your enthusiasm, Aletta! :) I've never had corn chowder from a can, but I can't imagine that it would be worth eating. I'd bring you a batch if I could. :)
