It took me a while to name this sandwich – obviously I didn’t want to name it after an animal. Plus, it’s made from vegetables instead of flesh, so it tastes nothing like pulled pork.

As I’ve always said, as a vegetarian/pescatarian it is difficult to keep meals interesting, which is why I am always trying to find new ingredients and food that I like. But sandwiches are always a winner with me. I love them: cold, hot, warm, as long as there is no sand in them I will eat it and there are so many different variations and fillings that you can add to a sandwich. Although, this particular sandwich has always stuck in my mind.
I remember a couple of years ago, my boyfriend at the time, had one of these sandwiches from a well-known sandwich chain and I remember thinking ‘Why can’t people make vegetarian versions’. I mean yes, it would mean a lot more work for the people who work at these food chains, but vegetarianism is becoming a popular way of eating and I think a little more consideration for the people who don’t eat meat, for whichever reason, could make a difference. But what do I know.
At the moment, I am doing intermittent fasting. I find it an easier way to eat and it saves me having to think and cook 4-6 different meals a day, instead I eat 2 hearty meals in a 7-8 hour eating schedule. Which is why I had enough calories for this phenomenal meal, but it can always be adapted and you can always use little wholemeal sub rolls.
