Love Me Some Cali Cooking!
Several months have past since I last posted a kitchen wonder. Many brilliant and delectable food items have been created over said months, but alas between moving from West Virginia back to California and planning Brian and my wedding I have been unable to post them. Today I have a simple yet wonderful summer meal. The other night I felt in the mood for sandwiches, a rare desire on my part but I went with it. The sandwich we created was so amazing that we made another for lunch today.
There is a local bakery called Grindstone Bakery that makes mouth watering organic, gluten free, vegan quinoa ciabatta bread. It's a tad expensive but once in while we feel the need to splurge on them. They became the base for the sandwich, I'm calling it.....

The amount of ingredients vary as to how many sandwiches you are making and how overflowing you like them. All ingredients are organic.
shitake mushrooms, red onion, and purple bell pepper sauteed in olive oil till soft.
thickly sliced heirloom tomato
thinly sliced lemon cucumber
thickly sliced avocado
chopped up basil leaves
before piling on the veggies..... spread a honey mustard sauce onto your bread.

1 Tbs organic mustard
1 Tbs local honey
