Grilled Vegetable Sandwich with 2 Delicious Spreads

My husband is literally obsessed with grilled sandwiches. The only way I can get him to go natural food shopping with me is if he goes to this one store that has a sandwich deli section. And he has become a real snob about it too, only wanting the best crusty breads, and high end ingredients (...bonus for me too). It is also rather difficult to convince him not to purchase 'real' cheese, so that's why I came up with these two spread options: Cheezy Jalapeno Spread, and Chipotle Mayonnaise. Both have loads of flavor, so he doesn't seem to miss cheese when I slather them on. He likes to use the two together, but I prefer one or the other. In regards to veggies, you can practically use whatever you like, but the following ingredients are my personal favorite:

Roasted red pepper
Sliced zucchini
Sun-dried tomato
Sliced mushrooms
Caramalized onion
Lettuce, all types

Along with a spread, and a grill for pressing, you have yourself a gourmet sandwich which is sure to please everyone in your household. Why not have a little sandwich party, where you put all the ingredients out beforehand, along with various breads and spreads, and a warm grill, and 'make-your-own-sandwich' is the menu?

Ingredients (serves 6):
6 buns, rolls, or 12 slices of bread (your favorite for all of them)
olive oil
Favorite grilled veggies (make sure they are grilled, or sauted beforehand so that they aren't still raw after being grilled)

Cheezy Jalapeno Spread:
1 container of vegan cream cheese
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 cup nutritional yeast
1/2-whole jalapeno pepper,finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced

1) Mix all of the ingredients together with a small whisk until well combined. Enjoy on your favorite sandwich!

Chipotle Mayonnaise:
1 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 tbsp chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, finely chopped (you can use more if you like it spicier)

1) Combine all of the ingredients together with a whisk. Enjoy on your favorite sandwich!

To prepare the grilled sandwich:
1) Lightly sprinkle the inside and the outside of the bread that you are using with olive oil. This is also a good time to add your favorite herbs (finely chopped) for more flavor. Set aside.
2) Grill, or saute the veggies you will be using with a little olive oil. Consider the size of the slices in regards to the bread you will be using. Set aside.
3) Pile the bread with your favorite grilled veggies, along with one, or both of the spreads. Place in a grill for at least 3 minutes per side, or until grill marks form and the sandwich is nice and hot. Serve with a pickle and enjoy!
