Veggie Patty Sandwich



















The only veggie patty I like is the brand Gardenburger, which I used here. It tastes really good and i like that it's doesn't have a faux meat texture. I stock up on the Veggie Melody.

I heated the patty on the stove. The toppings are cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, onions and pickles. The organic sourdough bread is toasted and smothered with vegenaise and organic stone ground mustard. Made in less than 15 minutes. Soooooooo goood!

Key Lime Pie
