Veggie Club Sandwich

A club sandwich is usually toasted bread with mayo and bacon, lettuce, and tomato. A traditional club used to be two slices, now it's usually three slices with two layers of fillings. I'm breaking all the rules, by using two slices, losing the mayo and the meat. This is actually a traditional sandwich filling that's used in India, a chutney or a pesto made out of cilantro leaves. The sandwich is usually slathered with butter to keep the bread from gettin soggy especially if you're packing it up for a picnic or eating it later. Mine I would like to think is a healthier version and you could make it low carb too, by using low cal bread. I'm tired of eating low cal, so I went all out and made it with potato bread.

I make the green chutney beforehand it's a handful of cilantro leaves, add mint too if you like, green chillies, ginger, garlic, cumin seeds, salt, sugar and lemon juice. Blend this and keep in the fridge it lasts for a few days.

2 slices bread
a smidgen of butter if not eating right away
green chutney
1 tbsp shredded carrot
cucumber slices
red onion slices
feta cheese(optional)
tomato slices

Toast the bread, apply butter if you're packing it up to eat later or if you just like butter.
Spread a tsp of chutney on the bread slices.
Layer with carrots, cucumbers, red onions, feta, tomato and toast.
Cut diagonally and serve.
