Crisp onion rings vie with juicy tomatoes for dominance of your mouth in this mouthwatering sandwich. The Stack is crafted just like a steak sandwich, except the “steak” is made of various wheat and legume proteins with beets to give it texture. If you're feeling good, you can have it served on a bed of kale instead of on a bun. A side of show-stealing sweetheart fries (made from sweet potatoes), and your meal is complete. The Veggie Grill at Plaza El Segundo, 720 Allied Way, El Segundo. (310) 535-0025,
