12 Fantastic Sandwiches in Boston


This crunchy J.P. haunt is bringing sexy back to flesh-free — proving there’s more to veggie-sandwich construction than doubling up on “garnish,” and that lumbering loaves of multigrain (riddled with seeds the size of multivitamins) aren’t de rigueur. The key to this glorious garden-fest is the thick slab of sugary tuber: Transformed through dry-heat roasting, it plays a sweet, caramelized counterpoint against savory notes of jack cheese, red onion and tangy yogurt-tahini, and provides ballast that herbivore foodstuffs typically lack.

ALSO TRY: “Summer Guest” Sandwich (currently: pimiento cheese and bacon)
