Veggie Lover’s Club Sandwich — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, March 3rd, 2014

Veggie Lover's Club SandwichWhile most triple-decker sandwiches conjure images of meaty monstrosities bursting between bread slices with all things cured and smoked, it’s indeed possible to build a vegetarian version of the classic club; the secret is in layering textures, and relying on the freshness of produce and cheese for flavor instead of meat.

Ready to enjoy in a hurry for lunch or dinner, Food Network Kitchen’s Veggie Lover’s Club Sandwich (pictured above) boasts layer after layer of veggies and cheese, plus one unexpected ingredient: smoked tofu. Although tofu often gets a bad rap for its inherent lack of flavor, it easily adopts the taste of a marinade or sauce, which is why smoked tofu proves bold every time. If you’re not a fan of tofu or don’t have any on hand, just swap in smoked mozzarella instead for a similar experience. While most traditional club sandwiches feature simple romaine lettuce and sliced tomatoes, this one is made with peppery arugula and chewy sun-dried tomatoes, which, when combined with cool cucumbers and provolone cheese, offer a robust taste. For a next-level pop of flavor, skip the everyday mustard or mayonnaise, and smear sliced whole-wheat bread with a creamy mixture of mashed avocado, garlic and oregano.
