A day to veg out

October 1st is World Vegetarian Day so I decided to whip up some grilled veggie sandwiches. Thanks to the folks at Foodbuzz I had some fabulous bread for my sandwiches! They were kind enough to send me 2 loaves of the new Nature's Pride bread. I received 1 lovely loaf of 100% whole wheat and 1 beautiful loaf of 12 grain.

I thought the 12 grain would be perfect for this yummy sandwich.

This 12 grain had wonderful texture and taste and I was pleased to find that it contains no trans fat, no artificial flavor, color or preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup. It also has 14 grams of whole grains per slice so it's a great source of fiber!

Ingredients

makes 4 grilled sandwiches

8 slices of Nature's Pride 12 grain bread
4-8 slices of Swiss Cheese
4-8 slices of Cheddar Cheese
1 cup sliced Crimini mushrooms
1 cup sliced zucchini
2 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
butter for grilling


For my sandwich I piled on the Cheddar and Swiss cheeses, sliced mushrooms, sliced zucchini, sliced tomato, and fresh basil leaves. Then grilled it until the bread was a lovely golden brown and the cheese was nicely melted.

Just look at all of this goodness! The bread had a wonderful crispness!

You can substitute a rennet free or soy cheese for a true vegetarian sandwich.

Give this bread a try. You'll love it!

Thanks again Foodbuzz and Nature's Pride for your generosity!
