RECIPES: Veggie BLTs, Vegetarian Super Sub

By Rae Udy

Graduation celebrations and end-of-school parties is the perfect time to serve a variety of healthy and delicious sandwiches. Turn everyday sandwiches into something new and different by serving vegetarian bacon or sausage on whole grain breads.
MorningStar Farms makes a tasty variety of veggie bacon called Bacon Strips. Two crisp pieces on your Veggie BLT is only sixty calories with no cholesterol and provides 50 percent daily value for Thiamin. They are also a good source of iron, vitamin B6 and B12. The Web site, calorie-count.com gives Bacon Strips a solid B grade for nutrition value.
Vegetarian Super Subs are made with MorningStar Sausage Patties, low-fat cheese and tons of almost calorie-free toppings. Split a whole wheat French bread in halve lengthwise and pile on the goodies. Sliced green and black olives, pickled jalapenos, chopped green onions and peppers are just some suggestions for this easy to make open-face sandwich.
Morningstar Farms brand of sausage links or patties add protein for this versatile sub sandwich. One pattie contains ten grams of protein, 80 calories and is in high in vitamin B12, niacin and iron. Like real bacon and sausage these vegetarian alternatives are high in sodium with about 10 percent daily value in each serving.
These products can be found in health food stores and in most major grocery stores in the frozen food section, usually close to the frozen waffles.
Congratulations to all graduates and hard-working students.
