Vegetarian Ideas For Lovers Of Italian Food: 3 Deli Options For Your Lunch

If you're someone who loves to eat Italian food, and you are a vegetarian, then you are in luck because there are so many delicious Italian food dishes that cater to the vegetarian diet. It's one of the best choices for someone who needs to avoid meat, fish, and other non-vegetarian based dishes. And it's also quick and easy to get. So, if you need a new place to order from for lunch while you are at the office, you should look into finding a local, authentic deli. These places will have an enormous array of lunch items that are perfect for people who have a restrictive diet that precludes them from eating meat. Here are a few suggestions:

Cold Penne Salad

If you're a fan of pasta, but don't feel like having a warm pasta dish for lunch, then you should check out a cold penna salad. This is the perfect choice for a quick afternoon lunch. You can get a penna salad that is made with a pesto sauce and vegetables. or you could get one that has an Italian salad dressing on it. Both are perfect for a midday lunch. Neither are too heavy and won't make you tired. These cold salads might have small bits of cheese, often times fresh mozzarella, plus a grating of a hard cheese. They are also easy to transport, so you can order them from a deli and they can deliver it to your office without

Eggplant Parm Sandwich

If you're a fan of sandwiches you should look into an eggplant parm sandwich. This is a great sandwich for people who can't eat meatballs or chicken sandwiches. The eggplant is fried so that it won't be soggy. Then it is cooked with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. This is then placed onto a small Italian sub. If you want to make it lighter, you can ask for the Deli counterman to leave off the melted cheese. They can take the mozzarella and leave it off the menu. 

Provolone Sandwich

If you do like sandwiches but are not someone who likes eggplant, then you should look into a cheese sandwich. The Italians make some of the worlds best cheese. One of the best ones to try for lunch is provolone. If you want to make it a really authentic Italian sandwich then you should ask the Deli to include some giardiniera mix into the sandwich. Try this instead of someone like mustard. The giardiniera is a more authentic topping and it's a nice alternative to something such as mayo or mustard.
