This sandwich is a wonderfully tasty, healthy twist on a classic barbecue sandwich. Cook for Your Life food testers weren’t just pleasantly surprised by this sandwich — they absolutely loved it! Using sauteed carrots... as the main ingredient gives the sandwich a sweet taste, plus plenty of vitamin A, potassium, and fiber. But most importantly, prepared this way, the carrots are completely and unexpectedly delicious.
Heat a saute pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Place the carrots in the pan and saute for about 5 minutes. Add the barbecue sauce to the carrots and stir to combine. Allow the carrots to cook for about 15 minutes, until tender. Add a few tablespoons of water if the pan looks dry.
Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the remaining olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, parsley, salt, and pepper. Add the cabbage to the bowl and toss with the dressing. Let the cabbage marinate until ready to serve.
Assemble the sandwich by placing a portion of the barbecue carrots on the bottom of each bun and topping with cabbage slaw.
