Mediterranean Veggie Sandwiches

July 30, 2018

Author Notes: Cheese, tomatoes, garlic, and mushrooms - all ingredients with lots of natural umami flavor! This sandwich combines mediterranean/middle-eastern flavors with simple veggies for an easy yet delicious sandwich. I make variations of this all the time in the mornings before high school. I also posted this recipe on my blog here: Nilufar Kayhani
