It is no secret that the husband and I are big fans of sandwiches. I have posted about the various kinds of sandwiches we enjoy, often, on my blog.
The Veggie Delight sandwich at Subway is a hot favourite with us. Once in a while, we enjoy heading to a Subway outlet and chomping our way through the huge sandwich, loaded with veggies and a variety of sauces. Probably not healthy, but we do love indulging in it occasionally.
Recently, I started making the Subway-style Veggie Delight Sandwich at home, and it turned out absolutely beautiful. The bottles of Veeba sauces that we picked up at a departmental store (after much soul-searching) helped me achieve the same Subway taste. At least, now I know exactly what goes into my sandwich, and I have a modicum of control over hygiene and the amount and quality of ingredients I put into it!
Here is how I make the Subway-style Veggie Delight Sandwich.
Ingredients (to make 2 sandwiches):
- 1 footlong loaf of bread
- Lettuce, cleaned, as needed
- 1 small onion, chopped into thin slices
- 1 small European cucumber, chopped into thin slices
- 1 medium-sized tomato, chopped into slices
- 1/2 medium-sized capsicum, chopped into slices
- Pickled gherkins (store-bought), as needed
- Slices of processed cheese, as needed, each cut into 2
- Pickled jalapeno slices (store-bought), as needed
- Pitted black/green olive slices (store-bought), as needed
- Veeba Mustard Sauce, as needed
- Veeba Cheese-Jalapeno Sandwich Spread, as needed
- Veeba Mint Mayonnaise, as needed
- Veeba Sweet Onion Sauce, as needed
- Veeba Harrissa Dressing, as needed (optional)
- Heinz Tomato Ketchup, as needed
- Lay the footlong loaf on a chopping board, and cut it into two equal parts.
- Slice each half horizontally, through the centre. Open up each half.
- Make a bed of lettuce on the bottom half of the bread.
- Spread the chopped onion, tomato, cucumber, capsicum, olives, jalapenos and gherkins evenly over the lettuce.
- Add a generous quantity of Veeba Harissa Dressing, Sweet Onion Sauce, Mint Mayonnaise and Mustard Sauce, as well as Heinz Tomato Ketchup over the veggies.
- Arrange the slices of cheese along the top half of the bread. Close the sandwiches, and serve immediately.
- Ciabatta, baguette or any other long bread of your choice can be used in place of a footlong loaf.
- Veeba Harissa Dressing is optional for making this sandwich, as per me. The other sauces are an absolute must, to get the exact Subway-style taste.
- You could add boiled corn to the sandwiches as well.
- Veeba Honey-Mustard Sauce also tastes wonderful in this sandwich, as a substitute for Veeba Mustard Sauce.
- You could lightly toast the sandwich after adding all the fillings. We like eating this sandwich as is.
- Ensure that all ingredients are at room temperature, before you proceed to put together this sandwich.
