The Sandwich That Got My Brother to Eat Tomatoes!

What you need: 

2 thick slices whole wheat bread
vegan cream cheese (I like Tofutti), to taste
1 good summer tomato, sliced thinly
red onion, to taste, sliced thinly
black pepper, to taste
healthy sprinkle oregano
healthy sprinkle chives
vegan margarine (I like Earth Balance)
garlic and herb blend spice (mine is McCormick salt-free)

What you do: 

1. Spread one side of each slice of the bread with a thin layer of cream cheese. Layer the thinly sliced tomatoes and onion over one side, pausing often to sprinkle with black pepper, and oregano.
2. Sprinkle the other cream-cheesed side of the bread with chives. Lots of chives. Close sandwich and spread outside sides of bread with vegan margarine.
3. Sprinkle with garlic herb seasoning in manner of garlic bread. Grill like a grilled cheese sandwich.
I made this for my 12-year-old brother, who insists that tomatoes (well, most vegetables actually) are unfit for human consumption, and he devoured it. He said it tasted better with "all those secret spices."

Fantastic sandwich! I added fresh basil leaves before closing the sandwich. Buttered it up with Smart Balance Light topped with garlic powder before grilling on my skillet.

Excellent. Quick and easy. I will be making this again.

i couldn't follow this recipe exactly because i didn't have all the ingredients, but i can definitely see why this recipe is such a hit! i don't normally like raw tomatoes, either, but when my co-op had some organic ones i knew i had to try this recipe. :) i used a slice of tofutti instead of cream cheese, and basil instead of oregano, and broiled the whole thing in my oven (not particularly a fan of the semi-greasiness of grilled cheese) and oh my goodness it was delicious. next time, though, i will try to follow the recipe exactly to see if i like tofutti cream cheese! thanks so much for the idea. :) (i should have taken a picture but i ate it too fast!)

This receipe was good, though the onions were strong. I would suggest cooking them first.

I've been seeing the reviews for this sandwich pop up from time to time for months now and to be honest I thought, all this hype over a sandwich.....puhleez!  Well, I finally tried this sandwich and now I understand all the hype.  It was totally awesome!  I loaded it down with lots of fresh garlic chives from my herb garden and I woofed the whole thing down in about 5 minutes.  My beautiful daughter loved it too.

This was excellent!  I used hard rolls, put the garlic seasoning inside and baked them.  Just because it was what I had.....but I bet they are even better grilled.  Thanks!
