If you thought you had the sandwich sorted, think again

Sometimes a sandwich isn't just a sandwich. For starters, it doesn't always need bread.

 

Whether you're a paleo adherent or just looking to shake up your lunchtime routine, breadless sandwiches are the best thing since ... well, sliced bread. Just slice up your favourite veggies – tomatoes, peppers, aubergine – et voilà.
