Being a vegetarian, it’s not always easy to find a satisfying sandwich at just any deli on the street. Because of that, I usually like to go all out when I’m home making sandwiches for myself. This recipe combines the savory, meaty flavor and texture of mushrooms with rich and satisfying peanut butter for a vegetarian sandwich that’s big on flavor and filling, too.
