Make the BEST Veggie Sandwich of your life with this simple recipe!How many of you have gone to a fancy deli and thought, “Really? $10 for a Veggie Sandwich?!”
But you’re there and you’re hungry so you order it.
Then you eat it and realize there’s some veggie magic going on and you’d happily pay $15.
Well, you can create the same veggie magic at home for a lot less money. Let’s bring fancy-deli-worthy veggie sandwiches to our own kitchens.
What do you need to create such vegetable magic? Just a little flavor. Plain veggies won’t cut it. In this case, we’re using the flavor bomb that’s known as Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto.
I’ve been using this pesto on all the things (it’s amazing on this Salmon Pasta!) and it just adds that little somethin’ that elevates any dish. Or in this case, any Veggie Sandwich.
Roasted vegetables are the bomb.com in veggie sandwiches, so that’s what I use here.Is bomb.com totally 2015? Does anyone still say that?? I’m 40 now, so I guess that means I have to continue to use phrases when they are considered passé by the masses. It’s a benefit of getting older. You don’t care!
