Have you ever tried a sandwich without the bread? It's a genius way to save on calories and carbs but still enjoy all your favorite fillings. In this recipe, we've pulled in plant-based cheese, crunchy veggies, and a combo of Dijon mustard and tangy pickles for extra taste and savory satisfaction. Make it just as you would a traditional sandwich, adding lettuce, (vegan) cheese, avocado, and pickles but use a sliced bell pepper to mimic the roll or bun.
