Grilled Vegetable Sandwich

For those of you who are situated in the central/western region of Canada, you are probably experiencing a nice blast of hot air for the weekend! Like you me, you are probably wanting to head to the beach a.s.a.p and put on your bathing suit. Sadly, the water could still be a little too chilly. For those of you who don't BBQ year round, the warmer weather is definitely a good time to take out that BBQ and start grilling what ever you can see in sight (apart from your neighbor's cat)!

The other day, my best friend and I took the concept of a sandwich and rose to it a very exciting and tantalizing new level of taste and textures. Who said that a sandwich should be plainly buttered and pressed together anyhow?! Switch it up by allowing your BBQ to do all the work, and seal in flavors you might have never tasted before. Here's what we ended up with.

(Roasted Vegetable Sandwich) 

Step 1: Marinade your vegetables (zucchini and bell peppers) in a mixture of olive oil, finely chopped garlic, and herbs, for a couple hours. 
Step 2: When your vegetables have marinated, bring them to the piping hot BBQ with your favorite veggie patties. (Keep your marinade from the vegetables for the toast) Grill your vegetables without charring them too much, you still want other flavors to come out. 



Step 3: Place your favorite cheese (goat, gouda or anything works) with chopped garlic on the patties to let melt and intensify even more flavors for the sandwich. 



Step 4: When your vegetables are done, remove them and place them on a plate. Turn the flames to medium-low. Brush your slices of bread (or buns) with the leftover oil from the marinade, and grill slightly, not to dry them out. 


Step 5: When everything is grilled and ready, bring inside and start assembling you sandwich. Now at this point, anything and everything is possible for dressings. I would highly recommend mango chutney on there to give it a little heat. Also, some crisp iceberg lettuce and fresh slices of tomatoes gives it a nice sandwich feel. 




Step 6: Highly enjoy this puppy you have created! You will not be let down by this sandwich, even though it is completely vegetarian and PACKED with vitamins. So WHY NOT indulge with a nice glass of wine! :) 



Eat well, sleep well and till tomorrow!
