SO HOW'D IT GO?

So delicious! A local restaurant makes a vegetarian sandwich similar to this, and I've been missing it dearly since going vegan. This was the perfect solution... great with a big, fat salad!

This was soooooooo goood! So good in fact, I had 2 :) good job it was on small slices of bread haha :D
I used homemade tofu mayo, wholegrain mustard, sliced vine tomatos and a sprinkling of dried basil (didnt have fresh) salt,pepper and chilli powder.
It was divine! And I wouldnt consider myself a massive avocado fan either! I'm a convert now  :)>>>

Numnumnum! This was very good! I used plum tomatoes- they actually didn't make the sandwich soggy at all.  :)>>>

I love Avocado sandwiches!! I am usually too lazy to grill them (or busy babysitting!), they are good cold too. But they are EXTRA yummy grilled. What I do is use 1 whole avocado (once in a while half), and homemade bread topped with a tomato slice depending on my mood  ;D
With cold I usually just throw some dried herbs on top (basil, cloves, whatever), as it's quicker. If you have time u can mix it in with the avocado. I used Fresh Cilantro and basil (right off the plant!), and some cloves sprinkled on top the avocado mixture. Warm and delicious  ;)b

BTW I really wanna know if anyone shares in my love of cloves, I've been obsessed with them for quite some time now  ::)

I have had this twice for lunch since i found out about it less then a week ago.  I melted the butter and used a brush to apply it on the bread evenly. Earth balance alwas gives be a bit of a go every time i try to spread it, no matter how long i let it sit out of the fridge before use. I then added crushed red pepper to the butter, which gives this amazing sandwich a great kick! xD

This is my new favorite sandwich -- it's delish!  Super simple too, and great when you don't have much time to throw something together.  I spread vegenaise inside the sandwich first before adding the mashed avocado, then thick tomato slices pressed with a paper towel to absorb excess moisture, then sprinkled with salt and the red pepper.  Spicy fries are a great side to go along with it.
