Meet Your New Fave Lunch: Veggie Cheesesteak Sandwiches

As you can probably tell from the name, cheesesteak sandwiches usually contain steak. But who says we veggie lovers can’t get a piece of the action too? These vegetarian cheesesteaks are piled high with onions, peppers and portobello mushrooms, and finished off with a nice slice of gooey, melty cheese. Stuffed in a soft sub roll, they’re absolutely irresistible. Whether you’re vegetarian or not, you’ll love these hot sandwiches!

Ingredients:

Serves 2

— 1 onion

— 2 bell peppers (I used red and green)

2 portobello mushrooms

 1/2 Tablespoon oil

 2-4 slices cheese (provolone is ideal)

 2 submarine rolls

 to serve (optional): ranch dressing, fresh parsley

Instructions:

1. First, chop the vegetables into fairly chunky slices.

2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and add the onion and peppers. Cook for a few minutes over a medium heat, then add the mushrooms. Continue to cook for five more minutes, or until the vegetables are soft.

3. Divide the vegetables in half and add 1-2 slices of cheese to each half. Turn the heat down fairly low and cover the pan with a lid. Cook for a few minutes, until the cheese has melted.

4. Slice the submarine rolls in half and use a spatula to transfer half of the cheesy vegetable mixture to each roll.

5. Serve topped with ranch dressing and fresh parsley, if desired.
