This is really similar to a certain freaky-fast chain’s vegetarian sub, which I inexplicably love. It might be 97% the bread… crisp-soft-perfect Italian bread is my ultimate weakness. Unfortunately, it’s also pretty much totally devoid of nutrition. Taking all the delicious insides and stuffing them between multigrain slices is a worthwhile tradeoff.
We’re staving off that mid-January slump with big mugs of mushroom miso soup and these sandwiches. (Throwback to that miso ‘recipe’ because two pantry ingredients give you basically instant delicious soup, which I am all about right now.)
Here in the foothills we’re getting beautiful light snow showers every afternoon and I absolutely love it. I’m curled up on the couch under a fuzzy electric blanket, with my own puppy plus a sweet foster dog at my feet, craving steaming creamy hot chocolate. This is everything I want from winter. ❤
