Dairy-free ciabatta bread (such as Wegmans’ bakery’s variety)
Extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbl mayonnaise
1 Tbl balsamic vinegar
Handful of fresh basil leaves
2 thick tomato slices
Fresh ground pepper
Cut the Ciabatta bread in half lengthwise to create a sandwich top and bottom.
Place the bread on a baking sheet so that the cut side of the bread faces up.
Drizzle olive oil in the cut side of the bread and broil until golden.
Remove bread from oven.
Mix the mayonnaise and balsamic vinegar in a bowl and spread on the cut side of one slice of bread.
Cut your desired amount of vegan cheese for your sandwich.
Place the tomato slices on top of the bare bread slice and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Top the tomato slices with the basil leaves and vegan cheese.
Place the balsamic mayonnaise smothered bread slice mayo side down on the vegan cheese.
Heat LAJ Inc.’s Creamy Kale Soup and serve alongside the sandwich.
