Well blow me down!

It’s week 57 of @jaybirds Steemit Sandwich Contest! This week @jaybird is challenging us to make a…

Famous Sandwich!

What a fun idea! I want to send a big thanks to @jaybird for hosting this contest each week! He certainly has a handle on being a creative sandwich king! I would say we all have a lot to learn from him! He said to be creative, so this week my famous sandwich comes from a childhood cartoon and comic book hero,

Popeye the cartoon strip debuted in 1929. It portrayed a one-eyed Sailor often found defending his girlfriend Olive Oyl from Bluto the villan. Popeye was able to gain his strength from a simple can of spinach. As they say spinach became a favorite food for many young boys and girls during this time! Today we'll salute Popeye with a power packed sandwich featuring...


In fact I think he always grabbed his can of spinach just like this! lol

As you can see, Popeye had huge muscles, probably due to his extensive diet of spinach! Do you think Olive Oyl made power spinach sandwiches for Popeye? Full of protein, fruits and vegetables, and spice for the power punch he always had ready! Perhaps Popeye was a true Vegan?

I think we’ll make him proud.

Popeye’s Power Sandwich

Oh, and we’ll even include Olive Oyl!

I Used

  • Plain Coconut Yogurt
  • Garlic Clove (Minced)
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Cucumber
  • Tomato (chopped)
  • Green Onion
  • Granny Smith Apple (chopped)
  • Walnuts (Chopped)
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Maple Syrup
  • Olive Oyl
  • Popeye Portion of Fresh Baby Spinach
  • Crumbled Vegan Goat Cheese

  • Slice and chop the cucumbers and onions

Place the remaining ingredients except the goat cheese in a bowl and mix. Add the spinach and toss all ingredients including Olive Oly! Place it on the wrap, sprinkle the goat cheese and drizzle the yogurt sauce!

  • I can imagine what Popeye would be saying about his love for spinach right now!*

    I yam what I yam and tha's all what I yam!
