    I posted this a while back but it's so good I'll repeat myself.

    Portobello Mushroom Baguette

    This is DIVINE.

    6 large fresh field/portobello mushrooms
    3 tbsps butter
    2,3,4 (according to taste) cloves garlic crushed
    1/2 cup fresh flat leaf parsley chopped or 1tbsp dried parsley
    Dijon mustard
    1 French baguette

    Mix/mash the garlic and parsley with the butter.
    Place mushrooms on an oven tray, stalks up, and divide garlic butter between them
    Bake in a hottish (180c) oven for about 15 mins so the butter melts and the mushroom juices start to flow
    Cut baguette lengthways and pour mushroom juices onto one side
    Spread Dijon mustard on one side
    Add mushrooms, a little salt and pepper and squish the bread together again.
    Eat

    Portobello mushrooms are awesome. I knew someone would make with a recipe around those.

    Assuming eggs are OK there are a million ways to put them in a sandwich. You can't get too far beyond a traditional English Egg and Cress sandwic.

    2 hardboiled eggs
    1 tbsp mayo
    Handful of cress, beanshoots
    2 slices good quality white bread (has to be white)
    Butter, salt and pepper

    Mash the eggs with the mayo so it's a spreadable mixture - not too smooth, not too lumpy.
    Add cress/beanshoots
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Generously butter bread slices and spread on egg mixture.
    Make sandwich and cut off crusts if you want to be a purist.
    Chill in fridge for a few minutes to "set".

    Perfect on a summer day with a cup of tea LOL

    You can add all sorts of extra flavours to the egg mixture - mustard, curry powder, chilli sauce, tomato sauce but be careful not to overpower the egg. I've also made it with extra chopped celery, cucumber, capsicum, spinach - whatever you have in the fridge really.

    Yeah, it's delish on wholegrain bread too but there's just something about good old fashioned white bread for certain things. Bacon buttys (sandwiches) really only work on white bread too for some reason.

    Do any of you have some good recipes for veggie sandwiches, or any tips to bring in more variety?
    Agree with avocado. I can have it on anything and enjoy it. I make a variation of the veggie burrito from Qdoba (LOVE THIS!). I use a whole wheat tortilla, brown rice with cilantro and lime, black beans, cheese, pico, and avocado. YUMMM! There's also a great grilled veggie burrito at On The Border that can be replicated at home. It has grilled veggies (peppers, onions, etc.), avocado slices, and chipotle pesto. This can also be done easily at home simply by brushing the tortilla with olvie oil and putting it on the grill for a few minutes.

    Another of my fav vegetarian meals is whole wheat angel hair pasta tossed with olive oil, diced green and black olives, sun dried tomatoes, and roasted garlic. If I'm feeling really decadent, I put some toasted pine nuts in too.

    Try not to confine yourself to a 'sandwich' idea. Not everything has to have bread to be considered lunch.

    Last night, I roasted my first bell peppers ever! I'm new at this cooking thing. Anyway, it was super easy and the roasted red and yellow peppers were awesome on a sandwich.

    If there are any other cooking neophytes out there, here's how to roast a pepper in the oven:
    The Wednesday Chef: How to Roast Peppers

    Then while I was putting together my sandwich I remembered some amazing sandwiches that I've had at delis and they had a pesto sauce on them. So I figured out how to make that too- I'm on a roll! It was also really easy. I used this post as guidance:
    How to Make Pesto like an Italian Grandmother Recipe - 101 Cookbooks

    Didn't have most of those ingredients so I improvised and it turned out great. Here's what I did:
    finely chopped up several mushroom and cucumber slices
    finely chopped fresh parley
    added Parmesan cheese, black pepper, basil and some salt

    Then added a teeny bit of olive oil- just enough to make it all stick together. It came out great!
