Cabbage green bell pepper sandwiches are packed with nutrients and easy to prepare as well. Cook cabbage ahead and sandwiches are ready in minutes.
Today it is cabbage green bell pepper sandwiches for the second day of stuffed food. Last December on Delhi Hyderabad flight, one of the sandwiches served on board were cabbage capsicum sandwiches. I liked them a lot and this is my attempt to create those at home. My sandwiches were not close to the original sandwiches yet, delicious.
How to prepare Cabbage Sandwiches?
Cook cabbage and bell peppers until soft, season with mustard, black pepper and mayonnaise. Prepare sandwiches using this mixture as a spread. If you like hot sandwiches like I do, grill the sandwiches in a pan or in a sandwich maker. Else, trim the edges and serve.
When to serve the sandwiches?
Serve these for brunch, lunch, dinner and even as a snack or for elevenses. Pack these in lunch boxes or in your summer picnic basket and is a mess free food. Cut each sandwich into 4 squares and serve as an appetizer at parties as well. These are all day, any occasion sandwiches to have in your recipe collection!
