So being the food lover that I am I set out on a mission to change my view of the veggie sandwich forever. I scoured recipes, roasted a variety of vegetables and worked with various balsamic vinegars until I found the perfect combination.
I love buying organic vegetables from Whole Foods Market. If you feel the same way be sure to enter the contest below for a chance to win a $25 Whole Foods gift card!(might take a few seconds to load)
Grilled Veggie Sandwich with Whipped Ricotta
(makes 1 large sandwich)
1 zucchini sliced lengthwise
1 red bell pepper, quartered
4oz mushrooms, sliced
handful baby spinach
balsamic dressing (recipe below)
Lightly coat zucchini, bell pepper and mushrooms with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill until soft about 10 mins.
Mix about 1 tablespoon olive oil with the ricotta cheese and whisk until mixed. Add more or less depending on how fluffy you want your ricotta.
Cut open bread, spread one side with ricotta cheese and the other with balsamic dressing on the other. Place grilled vegetables on top of cheese and then add generous amounts of arugula and spinach.
2oz ricotta cheese
Whisk together until thickened.
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (I used Spectrum Organics found at Whole Foods)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
Whisk everything together until it emulsifies.
