Easy Creamy Vegetable Sandwich Recipe

There are some days when I go all out and prepare a feast for the house. And then there are days like these where I don’t even want to stand in the kitchen (which happens almost every other day tbh). On such slob-fest kinda days, this quick and easy creamy vegetable sandwich are like a God-Send for me. They are such a quick fix for my non-adulting days or days when I want a light dinner, oh and I absolutely love adding them to my high-tea menus too.

So Basic!

That would be the ingredients I am referring to. Cabbage, iceberg, capsicum, cream and mayo are all things you probably already have in your fridge. Go give this a shot

BONUS: TRICK TO PREVENT SOGGY BREAD

So like with any cold cut sandwich, this sandwich also runs the danger of making the bread a little soggy from the inside. To counter this, what I like to do is, I like to grill or toast only the inner side of the bread lightly and layer it with a very thin layer of butter. This acts as a water lock to an extent and keeps your sandwiches fresher for longer.

PREPPING BEFORE HAND

If you are like me, then you probably like getting things done way ahead of time. If you plan on making these for a high-tea, then a good point to note is to not mix the sauce with the veggies. You can cut the veggies and make the sauce and store both separately. This is because as soon as vegetables mix with salt or sugar, they release water which will make your mixture runny. You can however prep them in an hour in advance, just not over night.

 

Mayo is healthy right? Substitutions

If it were up to me, I would TOTALLY state this as a healthy recipe because you know veggies! But apparently mayo and bread don’t qualify as very healthy. But hey you could always make the following substitutions and make this recipe a part of your fitness menu:

HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES
  • Mayonnaise – More fresh low fat cream
  • Sugar – With Stevia or Honey
  • White bread – Multi grain bread

VARIETY IS KEY

What other vegetables go well with this creamy base? I’ve added tomatoes, shredded carrots and cucumbers in the past and they go really really well with the other veggies and sauce. Hey let me know if you try any other others that work out for you.
