It is Sunday lunch. So that means, sandwich time. I had some extra Tzatziki sauce left over from last night’s entertaining. My Tzatziki uses fat-free Greek yogurt so it is a great condiment to use on sandwiches. Great because it is obviously low cal but also it has so much flavor. The sandwich does not need to get to fancy with the other ingredients. They just need to compliment the Tzatiki. I love grilled sandwiches. Make sure you use good bread when making any sandwich but especially with this grilled Veggie sandwich with Tzatziki sauce. In this case, a nice French bread roll.
- 1/2 of a French roll
- 3 – 4 tbsp of Tzatziki
- 3 slices of Zucchini & Squash
- 2 slices of Eggplant
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp oregano
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 Radish
Start by slicing the zucchini and squash lengthwise. Then, slice the eggplant into big circles. Heat a pan on medium to medium high heat. Add the oil and let it warm up – about 2 minutes. Place the veggies (except for the radish) in the pan. Season 1 side of the vegetables the spices.
Cook until you get good grill marks then turn and cook the other side. Cook the veggies maybe 2 minutes per side. You want the veggies to keep some of their firmness.
Next add some olive oil on to the roll and put it into the pan when the veggies are removed. Push down on the bread so the whole surface gets grilled. Cook for 2 minutes or so. Assemble the open face sandwich by adding on a generous amount the Tzatziki. Begin the vegetables with the zucchini and squash.
Then add the eggplant and finish with the radish (Leaving the radish raw provides both a goo crunch and some more texture to the sandwich). Enjoy!
