Fusion Flatbread (VEGAN) Sandwich

One Sunday Morning at site, I awoke with absolutely no plans for the day (imagine that haha). As I laid in bed, I thought of possible options for my day of rest. Maybe I’d bike into town, get some coffee, play a little badminton with the kids. My wandering mind was suddenly brought back to reality with a crash of thunder. A quick gaze out my window at the pouring rain immediately altered my plans, I was staying home. My rumbling stomach sparked my creativity, and thus the Fusion Flatbread Sandwich was born. Below you will find the recipe. I am not one to measure. I make food based on taste and texture. The measurements below are guess-tamated. Feel free to make any alterations in accordance to your individual tastebuds.
