Veggie Lunch Take 2 - Even more delicious!
But back to the deliciousness!
If you want to make an amazing vegetarian sandwhich for lunch, I recommend the following. Start with your favorite white french bread. Toast it, and then drizzle with your favorite balsamic vinegar. Then add 1 large leaf of lettuce, 3 slices bell pepper, 1 slice of heirloom tomato, 3 more slices of bell pepper, 2 thin slices of quality Jack cheese. We tend to stick to quality cheese and eat less of it whenever possible. It ends up being about the same cost in the end if you don't eat too much of it, and it helps the pounds strip off my gut to avoid over eating cheese. But it also adds protein to this meal. For healthy fat you might want to add some avacado. I've thought of blending some with some balsamic and spreading it on the bread. Maybe I'll give that a try tomorrow.
I tell, ya, IT WAS SO GOOD! I highly recommend you try making similar sandwiches. The parts of the pepper, lettuce and tomato that weren't edible went into our compost. Unfortunately we'd forgotten a head of lettuce was in the crisper so it had started to go bad. The worms will love it tho, and it will become compost to help our garden and those of our friends grow. Hopefully when I get my trike next week I will soon be able to bike down to the store and get supplies in smaller amounts and less frequently which would lead to less spoiled fruits and veggies. We will still have more to compost because the store sets aside any of their unsellable produce and I pick it up when I'm there. Whatever I can't plant, scavenge seeds from or otherwise use, goes into a compost bin to help nourish community gardens.
