grilled eggplant sandwich

serve on a toasted whole wheat roll


1 whole eggplant, peel lengthwise, every other row (creates stripes)
1 large onion, cut in half and sliced thin
1 medium red onion
1/2 red pepper, cut into strips
1/2 yellow pepper pepper, cut into strips
Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced thin
1/4 cup pesto sauce
Whole wheat rolls, grilled till toasted


Salt the eggplant and let it sit in a strainer for 30 minutes.  Wipe these slices off and put them into a bowl and baste both sides with the pesto sauce.   Cook these on a medium heat for about 20 to 25 minutes, turning once.

I prefer the George Forman electric grill

Meanwhile sauté tog. The onion and peppers, till soft. Salt and pepper.

I buy peppers in bulk at Costco, cut into strips
and freeze for last minute meal planning.

Spread the roll with Vegenaise, lightly on both sides.  Layer on the eggplant, fresh mozzarella and onions and peppers.
