Epic Veggie Sammie

Made this as a vehicle for some fresh home made mozzarella I picked up from Andrews Cheese Shop on Friday (Review incoming, fucking love that place) but ended up actually not putting any cheese in, and it turned out to be a spectacular (and nearly vegan) vegetarian sandwich.

The Pieces

Prep Time: 15-20 mins

Cook Time: well…if you count toasting the bread…5 minutes? Its a fucking sandwich

  • 1 8 ozĀ  tub Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • 1 italian loaf of bread
  • A pile of sliced pepperoncinis – call it 6 oz
  • A handful fresh basil leaves, enough to coat your bread twice
  • 1 julienned red onion
  • A handful of pickles. For best results use 3 ‘stackers
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • Fresh cracked black pepper

The Puzzle

1. Slice out a portion of the italian loaf about 6×8 inches, cut clean in half (as pictured)

2. heat some olive oil in a pan and sear the bread lightly (as you would a grilled cheese sandwich). Set aside.

3. Julienne your red onion

4. Dice your giardiniera

5. Wash your basil

6. Spread your bread with hummus, and layer one side with half your basil, and one side with your giardiniera

7. Layer red onion (no more than 10-12 slices) and pepperoncini’s on top of the basil

8. Top this with another layer of basil

9. Layer your pickles on top of your giardiniera

10. Drizzle the olive oil over both sides, same with the vinegar. Crack some fresh black over both.


11. Combine your sandwich halves

12. Grab a glass of white wine, sit outside in the afternoon sun, and fucking bask in sandwich valhalla.
