The Sandwich That Got My Brother to Eat Tomatoes!

What you need: 

2 thick slices whole wheat bread
vegan cream cheese (I like Tofutti), to taste
1 good summer tomato, sliced thinly
red onion, to taste, sliced thinly
black pepper, to taste
healthy sprinkle oregano
healthy sprinkle chives
vegan margarine (I like Earth Balance)
garlic and herb blend spice (mine is McCormick salt-free)

What you do: 

1. Spread one side of each slice of the bread with a thin layer of cream cheese. Layer the thinly sliced tomatoes and onion over one side, pausing often to sprinkle with black pepper, and oregano.
2. Sprinkle the other cream-cheesed side of the bread with chives. Lots of chives. Close sandwich and spread outside sides of bread with vegan margarine.
3. Sprinkle with garlic herb seasoning in manner of garlic bread. Grill like a grilled cheese sandwich.
I made this for my 12-year-old brother, who insists that tomatoes (well, most vegetables actually) are unfit for human consumption, and he devoured it. He said it tasted better with "all those secret spices."

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was great! I used red peppers instead of onions, but otherwise followed the recipe. I second the suggestion to use a hearty bread, mine fell apart, but it tasted great. I think this is the first recipe I've given five stars. I'll be making this again.

This was really good! I didn't have any red onion so I left it out. I love how cheesy the tofutti tastes when it is melted. I will make this lots!

OMG, pineapple! This was fantastic! It's so good, I ran out to the market to get more tomatoes! I made it in a whole wheat pita and layered in some fresh basil leaves I got growing....mmm...the only problem is, when I'm done, I always wish I had another one...which I'm too lazy to go make...yummy!

i made this sandwhich again but because i was short on time i didnt bother grilling it. i warmed it in the mircowave for 30 seconds and it was still so good! this time i also added sliced enlgish cucumber, capers, and diced cornichons. (this adds a saltyness that reminds me of my favorite bagel shops specialty cream cheese flavor, but better!) in all honesty, this is my favorite sandwhich, ever.

Ok wow! I was really in the mood for something easy and simple, as I am usually a complicated recipe kinda gal and I gotta tell ya....YUMMMMMO! I used wheat bread, tofutti, roma tomatos, fresh scallions, instead of red onion as I didnt have any on hand, and it was perfect! I am mighty full, and I love that is it like a grilled cheese. I used fresh oregano and garlic powder on the top portion with soy butter and it was delish..thanks so much to your little brother and you!! :) ;)b Erin~
