There’s no doubt that Mumbai’s food scene has really picked up over the last few years. Unfortunately we still seem to be lacking in a certain food: Good sandwiches. Subway chains are all over but I’m a little hesitant to eat there – lord knows how long their veggies have been sitting out for. Indigo Deli has a huge list of sandwiches on their menus but I’m totally over their current options. It’s about time they offered more options & a good starting point would be adding in some vegetarian sandwiches that don’t contain cheese- gotta keep the lactose-intolerant folks who don’t eat meat in mind!
Fortunately we do get great ingredients in Mumbai to create a mean sandwich at home. Local farmers are expanding their horizons and making such fun produce available in the market like like microgreens, mange tout, kale, alfalfa sprouts & Swiss chard…yes I just called veggies fun :)! Although avocados tend to be quite hit or miss here, my last 2 purchases have been on point which leads to me to lunch yesterday: an out-of-this-world-better-than-any-restaurant sandwich.
Guys, this is the ultimate veggie sandwich. I know some people struggle to come up with quick, meatless meals that actually taste good but trust me on this- you won’t even miss the meat on this one…or the cheese! Go on, tell me you don’t want to get in on that:
It’s too basic to be considered a recipe, but too delicious not to share at all:
