Last week I deviated from my usual sandwich at Cafe Hey and switched it up by trying the “VLT” – Vegan Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato. But since I still cringe like a kindergartener at the thought of consuming raw tomatoes, I subbed avocado.
It was amazing.
So amazing that I was determined to recreate this “VLA” at home.
And having just made a fresh loaf of bread, it was the most perfect of timing.
Who needs a panini press when you have a tea kettle full of water?
I can’t tell if I 100% loved the sandwich or if I 90% loved it and 10% loved the MacGyver feeling that accompanied creating a make shift tea kettle panini press. Either way, it was a gold star ‘recreation of a meal’ moment for this girl!
