Queso Veggie Sandwich

The Chef: Gabrielle and Java Beach Café

The Menu
: A huge veggie sandwich featuring cucumber, tomato, avocado, sprouts, and mustard in a fresh baguette slathered with some warm and spicy Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso.

The Goods: Tired of lusting over our delicious Java Beach sandwiches? Well, I'm not tired of eating them, though I will be able to mix it up a bit when we move to our amazing new office in San Francisco's Mission district, an area known for excellent vegan offerings like at the fully-vegan Gracias Madre and Cha-Ya Vegetarian Japanese restaurant. Today's sandwich was one of those meals you think about for the rest of the day, due mainly to the delicious Nacho Mom's Vegan Queso I slathered all over it. Accompanying the sandwich is an essential pick-me-up in the form of GT's Synergy Kombucha. Though I usually make my own, sadly I had to leave my scobies back in Canada, so it's GT's to the rescue since this vegan doesn't buy into the controversy surrounding kombucha's alcohol content. Will there be brownies from Allison's Gourmet during my afternoon snack-fest? Um, probably!

You can get Nacho Mom's vegan queso at Food Fight Grocery, Cosmos Vegan Shoppe, Vegan Essentials, and Pangea Vegan Products online. Spreading to other grocery stores too so ask the grocery buyer if you don't see it, especially at a natural grocery, and they can usually get some in!

pssst, you'll be addicted.

Hi Elise,

Here in San Francisco, it's easy to find GT's kombucha at one of the many privately-owned corner stores. I've also found it at both Other Avenues and Rainbow Grocery. Whole Foods has stopped selling it, but try the private grocery and health food stores in your area. Of course, you could always follow the link in the post and make your own. Good luck!

Nacho Mom's should be at most Whole Foods locations in January 2011, also all the Natural Grocers and PCC markets. In fact we are in 25 states now, y'all! Whoo Hoo
