Sandwich with basil pesto

 Most people I know are not into sounds too simple! Its not French/Italian or ethnic Indian.
 Yet ...Here I am with another recipe of Sandwich. I can't help but experiment with the fillings.
Here I have tried a vegan basil pesto (Recipe by Soma) with whole wheat bread and results are pretty good.

    Ingredients (for 2 sandwiches)
  1. Brown bread/ wheat bread/ multigrain bread- 4 slices
  2. Cucumber- 1, thinly sliced
  3. Tomato- 1 big, thinly sliced
  4. Capsicum/green pepper- 1 small, thinly sliced
  5. Red Onion-1, thinly sliced
  6. Mushrooms- 3-4 small, thinly sliced and sautéed in oil/butter
  7. Salt-to taste (remember the pesto has salt)
  8. Freshly ground black Pepper-to taste
  9. Homemade basil pesto- 2-3 spoons (u can increase as per your taste)
  10.  Italian seasoning to sprinkle (optional)
  11. Mustard sauce and ketchup (optional)- to serve
  12. Cheese slices (we used 'Emborg' -edam cheese)- 2

  • Toast the bread slices. You can also prepare the sandwich and then grill it.
  • Spread the pesto on the bread and layer all the veggies onion, cucumber,capsicum, tomatoes and mushrooms respectively.
  • Sprinkle salt, black pepper and the seasoning mix . Cover with cheese slice.
  • Cover with toasted bread.
  • Use a sharp knife and cut it into a triangle.
  • Enjoy with your coffee/tea.
If you want melted cheese then you can re-heat the sandwich on a skillet . Remember to keep it the cheese- y side down. I tried it with one, as it had went somewhat cold.

Hope you like it. Do tell me about your experience.
