Expert Tips

Enjoy these meatless sandwiches with tortilla chips and lots of fresh fruit.

These sandwiches are great for biking or any outdoor adventure. Wrap tightly in foil or plastic wrap, and keep them very cold until serving time.

One large tomato, sliced, can be used instead of the plum tomatoes.
