Open-Faced Pan-Seared Vegetable Sandwich
Grilled vegetable sandwiches have become popular in airports and in grocery stores’ deli departments. This recipe offers flavor and nutrition wthout firing up the grill. Using only one piece of whole grain bread and no cheese lowers the calorie content.
1 large zucchini
1 white onion
2 cups mushroom caps (you can also use stems; cut lengthwise so they don't roll off)
1 cup bell peppers (red, onion, orange, no green for this recipe)
1 small eggplant (peeled)
1.5 T olive oil
1 T pepper
6 slices whole grain bread or buns
*1 t oregano
*2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 large roasted green chilies
Cut vegetables into strips no longer than two inches long and ½ inches wide
Put oil in frying pan and heat on medium high
Add ingredients to pan and cook until tender
Toast bread and add vegetable mixture to top.
If you like hummus, spread on the bread and then add vegetables.
This becomes a heartier sandwich if you add salmon on the toast and top with vegetables.
