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."

SO HOW'D IT GO?

YUM!  We make these all the time.  We call them "tomato sammys" for short.  I couldn't believe how awesome these were.  I always sautee my onion slices first before adding them to the sandwich and grilling the whole thing.

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmers! I broiled the bread in the oven with some veg butter & minced garlic . Then, carmelized the onions and used up the surviving chives from the garden. This is one of the best sandwiches I've had in awhile. Thank you!

I had this sandwich for dinner tonight. It was amazing! I substituted the onion for avocados and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe.

This was amazing! I was looking for something easy to make for lunch. Perfect! I think I'll be making it at least once a week!

I first tried this sandwich a year ago, and never got around to leaving a review. It has a permanent spot in my favorite recipe book! Just like all of the other reviews, I love it! I use sourdough bread, and I saute the onions. Sooo amazingly good!
