Bombay Veg Sandwich

Everywhere you go you find sandwich stands, sandwich shops, and nine out of ten people seem to stick to the sandwich-and-glass-of-milk or cup-of-coffee luncheon.” –James Beard I come from a place where rice and wheat are the staple food. Sandwiches are rarely provided as a snack smacked with jelly and butter.

Grilled Almond Butter Pomegranate Sandwich

Have you tried sandwiches with pomegranate? It’s not something that’s crossed my mind like ever but I should say I’ve tried pomegranate covered dark chocolate and they are decadent.

My lovely neighbor recently shared a bag full of pomegranates that she harvested from her backyard and my kiddos were thankfully not present when she stopped by.

Hummus is an Arabic word for chickpeas but are usually made with sesame paste (tahini), lemon juice, garlic, and salt.

Burrito Wrap

Wraps and Sandwiches are ideal foods for road trips and picnics. This recipe is protein rich and can be customized to one’s taste. I used to think that wraps need to be eaten as and when they are made but I quite liked the taste of soft wraps that were made few hours before during one of our road trips. They are one whole meal wrapped in tortilla and can be made protein rich by Want to know more about this recipe?

Roasted Tomato Caprese & Avocado Sandwich

“Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication”– Leonardo da Vinci. Do you agree? I do, I do, I completely do especially after making this simple sandwich.

Quinoa Wrap with Edamame, Veggies & Avocado

Wraps are in our menu once in awhile  especially if there are plenty of veggies that haven’t been used and is sitting in my veggie drawer in the refrigerator staring at me slouched as if I’m being mean by not picking them.

Broccoli Mushroom Bell Pepper Melts

I came across this recipe from marthastewart website while I was looking for a new inspiration for sandwiches. I’ve never heard of knife-and-fork sandwiches. I always prefer to use my hands than a knife-and-fork for sandwiches as I don’t like to nibble on small bites while I can have a mouthful of goodness. Just like an insect gets attracted to light, I was so attracted to the colorful display of these sandwiches that I was Want to know more about this recipe?

Tomato, Peach & Ricotta Sandwich

When I’m bored with eating leftovers for lunch, sandwiches are my rescue. A meal that can definitely be made just for me without any leftovers. They are super simple to fix but can be boring if there is no zing or the “ooh” factor that lights up your eye and makes you take an even bigger bite the next time. I generally don’t mix fruits in my main course and was drawn to this sandwich Want to know more about this recipe?

Grilled Avocado Cheese Sandwich

My kids are not big fan of sandwiches, but these avocado sandwiches which is so bland and nothing that would tickle the Indian tongue’s spiciness has become their new favorite. I don’t cook anything elaborate if I have to cook just for my kids, simplicity is the key to their liking. It’s either grilled cheese sandwiches or other kid’s friendly dishes. I made these sandwiches, after my daughter saw them here , and wanted to Want to know more about this recipe?

Avocado, Vegetables & Bean Wrap

As I was dreaming about the beach that I was talking about yesterday, I wanted to eat something colorful for dinner to boost my spirit more. There was this urge to bite on mouthful of veggies and not able to talk for sometime especially while eating. I like to enjoy my food and appreciate its taste and texture while eating, but most of the time I gobble my food for fear of being caught in Want to know more about this recipe?
