Rainbow Sandwich

All the little details really made this delicious gluten-free, vegan sandwich come together: dressing the veggies, house pickled red onions, salting the avocado, peppering the tomato, and adding a simple vinaigrette to boost the flavor.

In the late 2000s, I worked at this funky lesbian owned punk cafe called Mama Buzz in Oakland California. Mama Buzz had great coffee and an interesting selection of cafe foods that seemed to make a bigger menu than a microwave and a panini grill should. But, we begrudgingly did it anyway. Grilled cheese, microwaved scrambled eggs (don't knock it ‘till you try it), facon BLTs, and a vegan sandwich that blew my mind. It was called Mama Buzz’s Ultimate Vegan, and it was every veggie in the house with hummus, vegan mayo and facon for an extra charge. All the little details really made this sandwich come together: dressing the veggies, house pickled red onions, salting the avocado, peppering the tomato, and adding a simple vinaigrette to boost the flavor. Here i’ve recreated this sandwich and made sure it includes the rainbow, because not only are we queer but there is a chain of queer women behind this recipe. Even the coffee at Mama Buzz was roasted by queer women who were at the forefront of the 3rd wave coffee movement (Equator Coffee.) This would be great on our new Sweet Loaf, which is perfect for sandwiches. - Lizzy
