Epic Bombay Sandwiches

Just had pani puri yesterday? Use the leftovers in a Bombay Sandwich! This sandwich is easy to assemble, especially if you have a few ingredients prepared from the day before! Plus, you can layer the ingredients as high as you want for a heavier lunch. Take a break from paninis and hot subs with this classic Indian sandwich that is commonly found in Indian street food culture. A cold and delicious sandwich on a hot summer day? Yes, please!

Grilled Honey-Beet Sandwich (Dining Hall)

My main purpose with this food blog is to show people that food from the dining hall CAN  look and taste good, if you’re game for a little experimentation! The sandwich I made today at the dining hall had beets in it- yes, I know, many of you may look away because ‘beets’ isn’t exactly everyone’s favorite word. Beets usually elicit an ‘ick’ factor from me, but I’ve found that with a little heat and some honey glaze, the beets can be amped up in flavor. When the beets hit the grill, they become slightly sweeter and their bland taste diminishes.

Working up from the beets, I chose the other ingredients because of their taste and the play of colors that forms on the plate: the beets stand out against the greens, and the croutons provide some added crunch for a different dimension of texture to this sandwich.

All I can say is that I think you should give these purple, nutrient-packed roots a chance!

Spinach-Mushroom Alfredo Pizza (Dining Hall )

IMG_8637 - Version 2

For this pizza, I used the pasta station at my dining hall to sauté the vegetables and put them on panini bread, which tastes similar to pizza dough. Since the staff at the dining hall makes the alfredo sauce fresh, I’m more inclined to go for this pizza than the ready-made pizza at the dining hall. No matter how many times I’ve eaten this, the staff’s alfredo sauce is always en point! Shout-out to staff ❤

Melty Pita Pocket

What’s better than Totino’s Pizza Roles?

Sadly, the answer is nothing. I found myself craving these tiny bites of goodness, only to realize that they are actually quite unhealthy for me and that I should probably reduce my intake of them. To snap myself out of my craving, I decided to make a healthier, larger version (larger is always better, of course) of my favorite “pizza pockets” by reducing the amount of salt and increasing the number of veggies that goes into this recipe.
