Sandwiches are the easiest and the best on the go meal be it for breakfast, brunch or lunch and even sometimes dinner. I can eat sandwiches anytime of the day. Whenever I run out of ideas or I am falling short of ingredients or feeling lazy I simply fix a sandwich for myself and enjoy. Well, having said that a nice delicious sandwich recipe makes me even happier. If its protein rich it definitely calls for a sandwich day 🙂
I am kicking off February month with inclusion of more protein along with more calcium and low on sugar. Trying to be as healthy as I can but that does not mean I am going to be skinny because ………… I am a big foodie and cannot control my love for food. Yet I can be fit and healthy by making right choices and right methods of cooking. What say?????
I came across this delicious vegan cheese while browsing through the grocery store aisle. I don’t think I have to stress enough on how big of a cheese fan I am. A bit fussy with the flavors of vegan cheese hence I end up eating the same cheese over and over again. Therefore, I needed a change.
I grabbed this tree nut cashew based garlic herb flavored vegan soft cheese. I loved it so much that I kept licking it throughout the day. While licking my fingers and yearning for a sandwich a recipe suddenly came to my mind. I quickly started with it. I sauteed some fresh chopped jalapenos along with crumbled tempeh and topped it with this vegan cheese. Later, seasoned it with salt and crushed pepper flakes. Made a warm sandwich with whole grain bread slices in a sandwich maker with more cheese in it. I ate Jalapeno Tempeh Cheese Sandwich hungrily and felt super satisfied. These sandwiches are so versatile that they can be eaten for breakfast or brunch with a healthy smoothie, for lunch or dinner with a side salad.
The added attraction of this recipe is that the sandwich stuffing can be made ahead of time and can be refrigerated in an air tight container for 4-5 days. That way meal prep becomes easier and food is always ready at any time of the hour without too much fuss.
