There was a twist in this session of the Blogging Marathon. As part of the last day of this session of Blogging Marathon, I was paired with Monika. The rule was to pick up some recipe from her blog which suits my theme. Since I had chosen to cook with Cucumbers, I picked up the most suitable and most admired sandwich of all!! Since the recipe had very convenient ingredients, it was a breeze to prepare these sandwiches for my kids. I have to mention that they were gobbled up almost instantly (save for some pictures!). 

Vegetable Sandwich

Recipe Source - Monika's Happy Sandwiches
Ingredients - 

Bread Slices 4 
Cucumbers and Carrots grated 1/2 cup
Yogurt/Curds 3-4 Tbsp (Preferably hung curd)
Onion slices few (as needed)
Potato, peeled,boiled and sliced 1 medium
Tomato , sliced 1 medium
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cream cheese or butter to apply on the bread slices as needed

Method Of Preparation - 

To make the cucumber spread/dip - 
In a bowl, add the grated cucumber and carrot and mix well with curds/yogurt. Add in salt and pepper to taste and make sure the dip is in spreadable consistency.

To assemble the sandwich - 

Apply cream cheese/butter to the bread slices, layer onion, potato and tomato slices for 2 of the bread slices. (My kids like their sandwiches with the sides trimmed!)

Spread the cucumber dip on these slices and cover it with a plain bread slice.

Vegetable Sandwich

I made 2 sandwiches so I did this twice :)

Cut the bread slices diagonally and serve them with hot sauce or ketchup. I hardly had to think about the serving as they just disappeared after I took the pictures :)

I put the slices in a sandwich maker and they were ready in a few minutes. Alternatively these sandwiches could be grilled or made on a stove-top griddle.
