This is my favorite vegetarian sandwich: pesto, tomatoes & mozzarella. Lucky for me, my husband feels the same way and is happy that I serve it for dinner once per week! Unfortunately my kids are allergic to nuts so they can’t have pesto, but I just make it for them without it.
It’s super simple, and I make some type of baked vegetable to go with it to make the meal feel more substantial since it’s for dinner.
You COULD go nuts and make your own pesto, but the store bought ones I’ve found are so delicious and relatively ‘clean’ so I choose not to and instead choose to make it the easiest dinner night ever. I’ve used the basil pesto made by Whole Foods and by Cibo Naturals and they are both delicious.
I buy juicy tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, put it all in between two slices of Ezekial bread, and I’m done.
You could also eliminate the bread and make a beautiful salad with just the tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil.
You could ALSO break out your veggetti and make it with zoodles (zucchini noodles) instead.
One delicious combination. Endless options. Pick one and give it a try!
