This is my newest favorite lunch nowadays. I latterly can have this every single day. And, I have! It’s got the best of all the food groups. Being a vegan, sometimes it’s hard to incorporate protein into a meal. Also, lunches can be on the run and usually a lighter fare. For this recipe and in the photo I happened to use a “flagel” for those of you that don’t know what that is, it is a flatter, crunchier and usually larger size bagel without the extra doughy inside. I like to toast them just slightly for an even crunchier texture. Flagels are very popular in New York where I happen to live. I’m on Long Island and every bagel store has them. They became very popular the last few years. Of course you can enjoy this delicious sandwich with a regular bagel. Or even a mini bagel. Just a suggestion, if you are making this with a bagel, scoop out just a little of the inside for a more slimmed down meal. If not, go ahead and enjoy just the way it is.
This simple recipe is very versatile, add any veggies you like. Try roasted red peppers, some hot peppers if you like a spicy sandwich. Also, for more protein, add on a veggie burger. That would be a great, hearty dinner. Anyway is the right way. Enjoy!!
