Mediterranean Vegetarian Sandwiches

Hubby is always gathering recipes from everywhere. Not just gathering, but actually making the recipes. He's good like that. Surprisingly, he finds lots of good ones from the newspaper!

Sometimes the recipes that Hubby has for eggplant makes me wonder if I like eggplant. Sometimes I adore eggplant. This was one of those times that I fell in LOVE with eggplant! In fact, we're having it for lunch again today. We used the Japanese eggplant because we think the skin is more tender on them. We added arugula on ours as well, since we have a giant container of it.

Mediterranean Vegetarian Sandwiches

2 thin sandwich rounds

6 slices eggplant, 1/4 in thick

Olive oil cooking spray

2 Tbs red pepper flavored hummus

2 Tbs feta cheese

Place eggplant onto baking sheet. Spray eggplant with cooking spray.

Heat the broiler. Broil the eggplant 4 inches from the heat for 5 minutes or until the eggplant is browned, turning the eggplant over halfway through broiling.

Split each sandwich round in two. Spread half the hummus on each bottom layer. Divide eggplant and cheese between sandwiches.

What a blessing to have a man that seeks recipes and cooks them too. Mine, not so much. One day, though, my Joshua will be my helper in that area :)

That looks good. I had to look up arugula. We call it rocket apparently. I find it a bit on the bitter side though it's very popular indeed here in the UK now. I love humous with coriander or peppers too. In fact I just love that sort of food. Hmmm. I think I'll go and have some supper!

Eggplant is kind of hit or miss with me. But my CSA doesn't care and usually gives me gobs, so I'll bookmark this for then!

Your hubby is a keeper for sure. This looks like a good one to try.

I just have to ask, sorry. I can find hundreds, yes hundreds, of definitions for the acronym CSA but I can find nothing that makes sense to me in this context.

And I have no idea what 'gobs' are in this context either. A gob here is a mouth.

LOL! I forgot about the term Gob hole, sometimes known as a pie hole here. :) I would be interested in how a gob became a mouth. "Gobs" is kind of slang for many of something.
Although I can't remember exactly what CSA stands for, I believe it is a co-op that has organically grown vegetables for sale. You buy in at the beginning of the season and every week you get a bag full of freshly grown veggies. You don't necessarily know what will be in that bag from week to week though. So sometimes you may get gobs of eggplant!

Ah. Thanks Lisa. There are people in the UK who market vegetables in the way you describe but I can't remember what they are called.

Gob is definitely not a polite expression in the UK even though it's used quite a lot in certain areas. Language is just so interesting isn't it.
