Cold Veg Cream Cheese Sandwich Recipe Ingredients
Coming down to the list of ingredients, The main element is Cream cheese. If Cream cheese is easily not available in your region, do not worry at all. Here is how you can make best cream cheese at home, like how I usually do (here's the link).
Then, I have used bell peppers of all three varieties (Green, Red and Yellow).
Carrots, corn, onions, cabbage, green chilies, oregano, butter, Garlic, chilli Flakes, Lettuce are the rest of the ingredients that goes in.
Also, I have used white bread here but choices can be made as per your requirement. You are free to use brown bread, multigrain bread or even whole wheat bread.
You may also add more cheese to your lip smacking sandwich if you wish to. Some Parmesan, Mozzarella, Cheddar Cheese, Goat Cheese, but their flavour and creaminess lend themselves well when grilling.
I usually just prefer my cold sandwich to be with the cream cheese mixture . Rather cheese loaded sandwiches are best preferred grilled and well crisp… yumm…! You can grill this sandwich too 🙂

Very good recipe. Can I carry these sandwiches during travelling? If so for how long it
will stay well?
Thank you so much Tehmina 🙂
Sice it has cream cheese in it, I would really suggest you to avoid taking it in long hours journey. However you can take it for max 8 hours of journey, provided you pack this sandwich chilled and wrapped in cling film and kept in a cool bag 🙂
