Easy Sandwich ideas for Veggies

I know I have mentioned before that I am a vegetarian :)
I have never had any problem thinking of things to eat or making my diet varied as there is an abundance of yummy veggie foods. I do have to admit however that I have a tendency to get lazy and our sandwiches for work mainly consist of cheese and salad with lots of mayo.. (perhaps not the healthiest to eat everyday..)


So I am going to try and mix it up and (with the best of intentions) make them the night before to give me time not to rush and reach for the same old fillings at 8am in the morning!

Here are a couple of reciepies I am hoping to try..

Veg a Go Go -- aubergine, courgette and tomato

7cm / 3inch piece of courgette, sliced
7cm / 3 inch piece of aubergine, cubed
2 cherry tomatoes, halved
olive oil
Place the vegetables in a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil.
Bake until tender, at 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.Once cooked, place a large spoonful in a toasted roll and serve.

The Yummy Hummy --Sandwich hummus with watercress.

Serves four this one. Make lots and save in the fridge.

225g / 8oz chickpeas, cooked weight
90ml / 3fl oz chickpea stock, from cooking or water
30~60ml / 2~4tbsp light tahini
1½ lemons, juice only
30ml / 2tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2.5ml / ½tsp salt freshly ground black pepper
paprika
handful watercress,chopped
1. Drain the chickpeas and rinse them thoroughly Grind them in a food processor - to give a smooth paste. Add stock, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and paprika.
2. Mix well, check seasoning and then spread on your favourite bread.
3. Add watercress as desired - great in half a ciabatta!
(and I know this is cheese again but mmm hallumi! )
 
The Halleluhah Sandwich! - Halloumi cheese, mint and sun dried tomatoes.

¼ 250g / 9oz packet of halloumi, cut into 2 slices
12.5g / ½oz seasoned flour
2 sundried tomatoes in oil, chopped small handful fresh mint
Dip the halloumi in the seasoned flour. Fry on a high heat until golden brown.
Place 2 slices of halloumi in each roll, followed by 2 sundried tomatoes and a few springs of fresh mint. Serve.

Our kitty cats however are sticking to a lunch of sensible 33 cat food and tuna..( tom says I am spoling them at they have had fish three days in a row...but they love fish so much !)
