Grilled Veggie Sandwich
This meal is so not in line with my goal of eating all the beef in my freezer, nor is it normal for me to prepare a dinner completely absent of meat, but sometimes I just get a craving for something really specific. Last Sunday, that craving was a grilled veggie sandwich with hummus.
I don't have much to say about the recipe for making this sandwich. Okay, I guess I have a couple pearls of advice, some of which may be common knowledge? I don't know.
1. You should always salt slices of eggplant and let them weep for a half hour or so before grilling (or using them for whatever you're going to use them for) to remove bitterness.
2. The best way to roast bell peppers is to put them under the broiler, turning them until all sides are pretty well blackened. Then remove them from the oven, put them in a paper bag, seal the paper bag however you want to seal it (I fold it down then secure it with bag clips), and let them cool in the bag. Doing this makes the skin easy to remove.
3. This isn't advice, but grilled romaine is really tasty.
4. So is bread brushed with olive oil and grilled.
I guess the above is sort of the recipe for the sandwich I made, being that if you put everything mentioned together with a spread of hummus, that's it.
