Lip-smacking delicious roasted sweet pepper sub-sandwich with green chutney sauce. Who says vegetarian/vegan-friendly sandwiches are boring?! Fresh, sweet, spicy flavors wrapped in a filling sub roll. Can you imagine that one bite of all the delicious flavors 🤤? I still can't get over how delicious this tasted.

A couple of years ago we visited Dana Point, CA. While strolling around the gorgeous Dana point beach, we stumbled upon a tiny restaurant hidden in a shopping mall. They had wonderful fish sandwich options but I decided to go for their vegan roasted pepper sandwich. Sadly, I can't recall the name of the restaurant but I can't forget those flavors of that roasted pepper sandwich. My Indian take on roasted pepper sub roll sandwich isn't the exact sandwich I had. However, the inspiration to create these roasted pepper sandwiches certainly came from the visit to this unique restaurant. —FeastwithSafiya
