Recipe: Harsen's Island Veggie Sandwich


Shared Plates: September 2018 Contest Winner

When Marie Lamb became a vegetarian in 2011, the Dearborn photographer searched for creative ways to experiment with traditional ingredients.

“I realized microwaved bags of frozen broccoli and the same sad salad every day of the week were not going to be my ticket to success if I wanted to sustain a plant-based diet,” she says.

Lamb, 38, won this month’s competition for the perfect sandwich recipe with her Harsen's Island Veggie Sandwich, which she created while on vacation on the Lake St. Clair oasis. Sautéed peppers, zucchini, summer squash, onions, and garlic are layered on top of baby Romaine lettuce and arugula, topped with creamy Greek dressing and blue cheese crumbles, and sandwiched between marbled Rye.

The best part about sandwiches like this veggie medley? “We get to eat with our hands without being judged and we don’t have to wash silverware.”
