IngredientsServes: 4

  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 small courgette, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 pattypan squashes, sliced
  • 4 individual ciabattas, split horizontally
  • 100g (4 oz) feta cheese, crumbled

MethodPrep:30min ›Cook:20min ›Ready in:50min

  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, minced garlic and lemon juice. Set aside in the refrigerator. Preheat the barbecue for high heat.
  2. Brush vegetables with olive oil. Brush cooking grate with oil. Place pepper and courgette closest to the middle of the barbecue and set onion and squash pieces around them. Cook for about 3 minutes, then turn and cook for another 3 minutes. The peppers may take a bit longer. Remove from barbecue and set aside.
  3. Spread some of the mayonnaise mixture on the cut sides of the ciabatta and sprinkle each one with feta cheese. Place on the barbecue, cheese side up, and cover with lid for 2 to 3 minutes. This will warm the bread and slightly melt the cheese. Watch carefully so the bottoms don't burn. Remove from barbecue and pile with the vegetables.

Trust me, you will not miss the meat in this sandwich! I also broiled my veggies because of the snow outside on top of the grill. The only veggie I added was green pepper only because I had one. I will use a large red onion next time because we love the carmelized flavor of the onion under the broiler. I also sprayed my veggies with balsamic vinegar for some extra "zip". Served the veggies on hearty multi-grain rolls from Whole Foods - - use the best bread possible because it truly will make or break the sandwich. Excellent recipe, Heather!!-29 Jan 2007

This was quite possibly the best sandwich I've ever had (my hubby said the same thing). We put it in italian-seasoned focaccia and after the veggies were done (we grilled them on a gas grill), we assembled the sandwich and wrapped in foil and put in a 350F oven for 20 minutes. Incredible. I want another one already. For us, this made 2 very large sandwiches. UPDATE: we've made these about once every other week and we still haven't gotten sick of them. Make sure and make the sauce about ahead of time and let it sit for about an hour in the fridge to mix the flavors well.-13 May 2007

It was a little confusing about how to slice the foccacia bread and why the recipe serves 4 when the instructions seem only to make 2 sandwiches.But nonetheless, I winged it and like the other reviewers said, it was terrific. My vegetarian friend I made it for really liked it.Next time I'll cook the vegies in foil wrap to save on turning and watching so much. Will also add portabello mushrooms.-17 Aug 2002


Grilled Salmon Sandwiches

A recipe for my favorite Grilled Salmon Sandwiches with Pesto, Avocado, and Arugula and tips for perfectly grilled salmon, every time! These scrumptious salmon sandwiches make a tasty and healthy summer lunch!

I just found the best thing since sliced bread!

Well it actually is bread, but you have to slice it yourself. Do I sound like a crazy person yet? I’ll clarify!

My local grocery store started carrying frozen artisan take-and-bake breads. They’re under-baked and basically finish the baking process in your oven whenever your carb craving strikes! In about 5-8 minutes I can have perfectly portioned, hot, fluffy, crusty, chewy, amazing baguettes, buns, loaves or focaccia without the weird additives or preservatives that shelf-stable breads tend to be loaded with.

No longer do I have to shy away from buying over-sized packages of rolls or buns, because I can now stash away a 4pk of fancy schmantzy ciabatta rolls in my freezer and only bake what I need, when I need it, fast!

It sounds silly to be this excited about bread but it literally took my frequently-single-gal dining game to the next level. This isn’t to say I can’t make my own bread at home, but sometimes a short cut is cause for a happy dance.

I’m terribly sorry you had to bear with me rambling about bread for however many minutes it took you to read that. Food excites me. Ready for a really stinkin’ good salmon sandwich?

Recipe Summary

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 4 portobello mushroom caps, cleaned
  • 4 slices onion
  • 4 Kaiser rolls, split
  • 4 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon roasted garlic, mashed into a paste (Optional)
  • 4 ounces buffalo mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 16 fresh basil leaves, divided

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

Place the red bell pepper onto the preheated grill, and grill until the skin is completely charred on all sides, 10 to 15 minutes. Place the pepper into a paper bag, seal the bag, and let the pepper cool. When cooled, remove the charred skin, slice the pepper into quarters, and remove the seeds. Thinly slice the pepper and set aside.

Mix salt and pepper into the olive oil in a small bowl. Brush the smooth side of the mushrooms with the seasoned oil, and grill, oiled side down, until the mushrooms show grill marks, about 3 minutes. Brush the gill sides of the mushrooms with more seasoned olive oil, flip the mushrooms, and grill until the mushrooms are softened and juicy, about 3 more minutes. Set the mushrooms aside and keep warm.

Lightly grill the slices of onion until softened and lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side. Spread the rolls out onto the grill to toast, about 1 minute. Mix the mayonnaise and roasted garlic in a bowl.

Spread each roll with garlic mayonnaise, and make each sandwich with 1 mushroom cap, 1 ounce sliced mozzarella cheese, 1 slice of tomato, 4 basil leaves, 1 slice of grilled onion, and 1/4 the roasted red pepper slices. Repeat for remaining sandwiches.


Grilled Vegetable Panzanella

First gather your ingredients. I’ve honestly had this recipe buzzing around my head since last summer. Grilled veggies, grilled bread and grilled dressing. Jk that’s immmmmpossible! Or is it?

I love this whole wheat ciabatta. I love that it’s whole wheat and has fleck of poppies throughout. Not sure if you’ll find these at your bakery, so regular ciabatta is always delicious in this recipe!

Then after you give it a slice, brush both sides with extra light olive oil. Yo I could so crawl into one of those holes and take a nap. For real.

Next, over medium heat, toast the slices until nice and well… toasty.

Next, while those pups cool, get going on that prep. Veggie prep that is. You’ll want to cube this bread at some point. In the throes of making this recipe I forgot all about shooting a pic of that. But I think you can imagine what cubed grilled bread should look like!

First quarter a bunch of mushrooms, trimmed and sliced up an orange bell pepper, halved and de-seeded a yellow squash and zucchini, sliced up 3 good sized shallots and quartered a shhhh-load of campari tomatoes. Campari are my favorite. They’re sweet and once the grill does its magic with them you’ll know why I love these so. Two words blistered magic.

Then drizzle with a little olive oil…

Next give it a toss with a little kosher salt and it’s as read as it’ll ever be to hit that hot grill.

I got this grill basket [affiliate] from my mother-in-law a while ago… and I love it! It’s sits on the grill and you can stir your veggies without having to skewer a darn thing before hand nor risk dropping them through the grates. It’s from Pampered Chef FYI and I lurve it.

All you need is 5 minutes to make this vinaigrette. It’s a good idea that as those rainbowful veggies are grilling… grab that almost empty jar of Dijon. You know you have one in the far left back corner of your fridge or is it in the door? What? You don’t keep empty jars around? Then just use a heaping half teaspoon and that should do the trick! Really?… no empty jars huh?

This is my jar. Like I told ya above… there’s about a half a teaspoon or so in there… and instead of dirtying up yet ANOTHER bowl… I’m using this jar. Darn it!

Next mince up a large clove of garlic and add that in along with three tablespoons white wine vinegar and then seasoned it all with kosher salt and some fresh cracked black pepper. Poured in a half cup of light olive oil and screwed on the cap. Tight.

I then handed that Dijon jar right on over to Pat and made him shake the bejesus out of it because he’s strong and can handle it. While he was doing that, I went and checked on the grill.

Next pull the veggies off the grill when they reach a level of char, soft-yet-still-firm < kinda like my abs, not.>just watch out for drips… better yet slide that basket onto a platter.

Then toss with the grilled bread and drizzle with some of the dressing. Toss and serve warm!

This grilled vegetable panzanella really is summer in a bowl. Because it’s light and the vinaigrette only adds to the delicious flavors of the grilled vegetables. My personal favorite? The bread. Soaked with the juices of the veggies and the dressing.

Then I’ve died and gone to heaven with this salad! And I’m so excited for the leftover grilled vegetable panzanella tomorrow!

Ps! Make this gluten free by using toasted gluten free bread! Winner-winner…

Enjoy! And if you give this Grilled Vegetable Panzanella recipe a try, let me know by snapping a photo and tagging me on twitter or instagram !

Homemade Vegan BBQ Sandwiches

I have been dying to create this recipe for a while now since it popped into my head months ago and planned for it onto my calendar. I was so super excited (like, spirit fingers excited) when it all came together perfectly…I love me a good gluten-free vegan recreation of a favorite! Now that I am really trying to eat a more “clean” diet, I have begun to find sheer delight in making everything I can from scratch–I am even now canning the canned beans and am learning the art of cooking dried beans. So making a BBQ sauce from scratch made perfect sense and then to combine it with chopped up Hearts of Palm to recreate a shredded BBQ “pork” sandwich–I knew a winner was created. Hearts of Palm has become a personal favorite as a great base with recipes like this and this so I knew I was on the right track.

Sandwich this barbeque pulled hearts of palm “meat” between a gluten-free vegan hamburger bun and you have yourself the most perfect summer sandwich on earth. Ever. Of all time. Exaggerating a little? Maybe.

If you do not have a local bakery that makes amazing allergen-friendly buns, I suggest a few things. First, check your grocery store for Shar products. They have really cool gluten-free vegan ciabatta rolls that work perfectly for this recipe. If you don’t have access to that, Shirley of Gluten-Free Easily put up an awesome round-up for tons of ideas for gluten-free hamburger and hot dog buns. You can find that post here distributing out all of the links here. Not all of them aren’t vegan but there are a few that are.

What Do You Think About Veggie Sandwiches?

Here are some instructions and tips for ingredients or methods you will see referenced in some of the sandwiches.

Balsamic Reduction: Heat a half cup of balsamic vinegar in a small pan until the volume is reduced to half or less.

Pesto: Process ¼ cup almonds or cashews in food processor until fine chopped. Add 1 cup fresh basil leaves, ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, 1 clove garlic, and ¼ cup olive oil. Process until smooth. Add more oil if need for spreadable consistency.

Tzatziki or Cacik Cucumber Spread: Grate 1 baby cucumbers or ½ regular peeled and seeded cucumber. Drain and squeeze dry between layers of paper towel. Mix into one pint of Greek yogurt, along with 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 teaspoon dried mint leaves, and salt to taste.

Olive Tapenade: Olive tapenade typically incorporates anchovies, which a good reason for making your own. In a food processor, a clove of garlic and a tablespoon of fresh thyme leaves. Add 1 cup pitted kalamata olives and ¼ cup olive oil, and pulse to a smooth paste. Thicken if necessary with more olives. If it is too thick, thin by adding more olive oil. Some tapenades also include capers.

Hummus: Pulse chickpeas in food processor to break up. Add garlic cloves, lemon juice, and tahini. Process until smooth.

Pressing and Preparing Tofu: Slice tofu into slabs about ½” or slightly less thick. Place waxed paper or plastic wrap on counter or large cutting board. Place tofu slices. Cover with waxed paper or plastic wrap. Place cookie sheet or large baking pan on top. Add additional weight. For step by step pictures you can visit my hub, How to Cook Tofu.

Grilling Vegetables: Cut eggplant, zucchini, and yellow squash on the diagonal. Cut onions in ¼” rounds. Remove seeds from bell peppers and cut in wedges or length-wise strips. Brush with olive oil and grill to sear with grill marks, but vegetables should retain firm texture.
