Vegetarian Alternatives to PB & J

As vegetarians, we get asked the same question A LOT.

"What do you eat?"

Most of the time we just say "anything, but meat." The question comes up a lot around Thanksgiving. I always think this is funny because turkey is really only like 1/16 of the meal. Anyway, as vegetarians we eat a lot of peanut butter and jelly. But we do have some tasty alternatives for sandwich fillings.

Pimento cheese sandwich
1 cup shredded cheese
2-3 tbsp mayo
1 tbsp pimentos
splash of pimento juice
(Auntie K likes to use pickle juice instead of pimentos)

spinach or lettuce

Grilled cheese (standard or with spinach)

Grilled veggie sandwich
2 slices of colby jack cheese (NOT singles)
sliced mushrooms
roasted red peppers
artichoke hearts
olive oil
Pile veggies on two slices of whole wheat, ciabatta or french bread. Drizzle with olive oil and top with cheese slices. Bake open faced in the oven on 350 for 10 minutes.

Almond butter and banana sandwich

Egg salad sandwich (the Farmer wouldn't touch this with a 10 ft pole)
2 hardboiled eggs
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp hummus or mayo
chopped pickles
Chop in mini food processor until it reaches the consistency of your choice (I like mine well blended). Serve in pita or on whole wheat bread.
