The sandwich started with a sweet n' sour cabbage and apple dish I made in the morning. It was a beautiful purple color (from the cabbage) and flavored with cloves and fresh lemon juice. Absolutely delish. Very rich and warming with bold flavors.
I then made a sandwich spread. I started with a container of French Onion Tofutti and let it come to room temp. I tossed it in the food processor with a head of roasted garlic and a few splashes of liquid smoke to taste. Yum! More bold flavor.
The Husband picked up a fresh loaf of pumpernickel from a local bakery and I already had a grainy mustard on hand.
When dinnertime rolled around, I roasted thin slices of orange sweet potato, beets, and parsnips. The sandwiches were built on toasted pumpernickel and consisted of a mound of the cabbage and apple dish, pan-fried seitan, the mustard on one side and the creamy spread on the other.
Out of this world, I tell you! All the flavors were incredible together and perfectly underscored the cold and rainy weather that rolled in last night. How I wish I could just go to a sandwich shop and get something like that!
After dinner, I baked the best oatmeal cookies I've ever tasted, which I promise to share more about very soon. I hope your weekend was fantastic!
