Mole Sandwich

Monica H


By no means an authentic mole, but a quicker mole with all the flavor, topping a delish vegetarian sandwich!

You will have leftover mole; store in fridge and use for more sandwiches, or mix into rice.. it is very tasty.

How to Make Mole Sandwich


  1. Quarter pepper. Roast on stovetop burner. In the meantime, sautee onion in olive oil.
  2. Add mushrooms to onions. Roughly slice roasted peppers and add to onions. Add vegetable broth, all the spices, and sofrito.
  3. Stir well and let simmer 10 minutes. Blend mixture in 2-3 batches (ladle into blender). Return mixture to pot.
  4. Peel turnip. Finely dice half of it, and finely slice the other half. Add the diced turnip to the mole, and reserve the slices.
  5. Add smashed garlic cloves. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Slice your roll in half, lengthwise, but don't cut all the way through. Smear on avocado andd douse with a couple of lime juice squirts.
  7. Layer on sliced turnip.
  8. Layer on the cheese.
  9. Pour on a few ladles of the mole. Center it in the middle. It will slowly melt the cheese underneath. Add a few dashes of dried cilantro on top.
  10. Eat like this: pinch ends with hands and eat into it lengthwise! MMMmmmmm!
