Sandwich me.

I love the convenience of storebought roasted peppers in a jar. My latest fave is the sweet and flavorful Napoleon Co. Roasted Piquillo Peppers.

This quick and easy vegan sandwich recipe is packed with these peppers, pumpkin seeds, and cashew cheese. If you don't have piquillos, roasted red or yellow bell peppers will work just fine.
