There’s very few times I feel deprived as a vegetarian. There’s a meat sub for this, a better version of that, so really there’s no reason to feel deprived. Until I see someone’s meaty sandwich stacked mile high. While I’m a HUGE fan of a cheese sandwich (like seriously cheese + mayo/mustard, maybe some lettuce or tomato if I’m feeling crazy), there’s just something so alluring about a sandwich you may need to unhinge your jaw to eat. I guess I could stack cheese a mile high, but I kind of like my arteries the way they are.
When Lightlife contacted me about their meat-free Smart Deli slices, I knew I wanted to create a HUGE sandwich. I’ve had the veggie turkey slices before, as well as the smart sausage and the tempeh, and I’m a big fan. With the deli slices, I get that jumbo sandwich I love, while eating a sandwich that’s better for me and better for the environment.
A warm element is always important for me in a meal — if everything is cold, I just don’t feel satisfied after. So I sauteed up some mushrooms and piled them on. If you aren’t a weirdo like me, you can saute the mushrooms in advance or slice raw mushrooms and load your sandwich up. I would normally say you can add veggie bacon if you’re feeling fancy, but the smoked cheese already adds the perfect amount of smokiness.
