Grilled Eggplant Sandwich

September 26, 2010
Eggplant-tastic sandwich

I always thought that lunch meat is super processed and packed full with sodium. Why not omit the lunch meat and enjoy a sandwich packed full of all the good stuff: Veggies! If the sandwich tastes just as good (or better), why eat unnecessary sodium when you don’t have to?

Eggplant Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of sourdough or ciabatta bread
  • 1 sliced roma tomato
  • 4 thin slices of eggplant
  • Olive oil for cooking
  • Spinach
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Red onion
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic salt, pepper and Italian seasoning

To do:

  • Slice up all of the veggies
  • Sprinkle one slice of bread with the shredded mozzarella cheese, then stick both slices into the toaster oven (the cheese should get all melty and hot).
  • Brush the eggplant slices with olive oil on both sides and season them with garlic salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to taste.
  • Either grill the eggplant and tomato slices on a barbecue if you have one handy or grill them in a non-stick pan on the stovetop. Both are delicious.
  • Take the toasted bread (with the one with cheese on the bottom) and stack up your veggies.
  • Put a little extra Italian seasoning, pepper, and salt if you feel so inclined to.

And there you have it. Veggie sandwich done in like 10 minutes. I make these often, but by using whatever veggies I have on hand at the time.

Variations:
Try using zuchini or yellow squash, or grill the onions for a different flavor, use feta or brie cheese, or even mushrooms!
