This vegetarian sandwich might seem kind of simple for the first fare of 2012, but let me assure you, it is well worth the minimal effort required to whip it up. This is a sandwich that I first ate in a tiny diner on Vancouver Island as a teen, when going through my vegetarian stage. There were a couple of vegetarian sandwiches on the menu, but this was the one that really grabbed my attention and it was so delicious that I remembered it while hankering for something vegetarian in the early days of my pregnancy, nearly16 years later.
