I start most of my days by having sandwiches with vegetable fillings and this is one of among them. This is very easy and quick to fix sandwich with mushroom, tomato and cucumber as filling, for flavoring, I added Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. This is a heart healthy sandwich which has no cheese in it and I used whole wheat bread, so this is very healthy and filling sandwich that can be made in minutes. You can have this no cheese sandwich for breakfast or lunch or dinner.
