Ciabatta Sandwich with Home-grown Lettuce

March 6, 2011

Most of this sandwich was made from store-bought ingredients.  The ciabatta bread is from Whole Foods – one of the less expensive things there.  You can get a 2 pack ciabatta loaf for $3.  This sandwich includes the following:

  • Ciabatta bread cut lengthwise
  • Spicy sprout mix
  • “Turkey” wheat meat
  • Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Veganaise
  • Yellow Mustard

The combination of ingredients is very tasty & satisfying, so we tend to make this particular sandwich on a regular basis.

The lettuce is from the garden, which I’m quite proud of since I could only get lettuce, onions, & peas to grow from this past Fall.

For the 2 of us, I’ve found that we only need 2 or 3 leaf lettuce plants to get us through the winter.  I like that this lettuce grows leaves you can pick rather than the kind that you have to wait for the entire head to grow.  I can just pick a couple of leaves off each plant, the lettuce will keep growing, & I don’t have to worry about an entire head of lettuce going bad before I can get myself to put together a salad.
