We lived for these sandwiches and were so distraught when they closed. We are making these ASAP! Don't forget the roasted red peppers!

I have a friend who has made green bean sandwiches for years and years. Once she made one for me to take on a plane. It was so dripping with garlic and olive oil that everyone around me was either envious or annoyed. Delicious, but I now restrict them to home.

The only other sandwich I've heard of that has green beans in it is the chacarero, a traditional Chilean sandwich. There's a really popular shop in Boston (called Chacarero, natch) that sells them made with grilled chicken or steak, Muenster cheese, tomatoes, avocado, and homemade bread. I've never really been a fan of green beans, but they're perfect in that sandwich!

This looks great to me. Upping the weird ante a bit: green bean and potato sandwich, with pesto smeared on the bread. Pasta with pesto, green beans and potatoes is a classic Ligurian combination, and I love pizza/flatbread topped with thin potato slices - at some point it occurred to me to swap pasta for bread (though, I use ciabatta.) I'll try this variation next!

This looks so wonderful! The world needs more marinated vegetable sandwiches.
