Grilled Vegetable Sandwiches with Goat Cheese & Pesto
Servings: 4 Sandwiches
Ingredients
  • 2 zucchini , cut thin diagonally
  • 2 red peppers (or other colour)
  • ½ red onion , sliced thin
  • 2 portobello mushrooms sliced thin
  • 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • ½ cup goat cheese (or cream cheese)
  • ½ cup pesto
  • 4 ciabatta buns (or other bread of your choosing)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F. Prepare all the vegetables and lay them out on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet with raised edges. The vegetables can also be cooked on the grill.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes until vegetables are just turning tender. Try not to over cook them, as they will become mushy.
  4. Remove the tray of vegetables from the oven to cool slightly.
  5. Cut the ciabatta buns in half and toast under the broiler in your oven.
  6. Spread the goat cheese on the toasted buns, and then add the pesto sauce.
  7. Layer your grilled vegetables on the bun and top with the other side of the bun.
  8. If you have a Panini press, I highly recommend using it to make the cheese all warm and ooey gooey.
