Grilled Veggie Sandwiches with Hummus & Avocado
  • Marinade
  • ½ C balsamic vinegar
  • ½ C red wine
  • ¼ C olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • The rest
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced length-wise
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into wide strips
  • 1 eggplant, sliced length-wise, then again length-wise
  • ½ large onion, cut into wide strips
  • 1 avocado (preferably real and not imaginary), sliced
  • 1 C fresh basil leaves
  • ½ C hummus, homemade (easy) or store bought (even easier)
  • 6 French rolls, or other sandwich bread
  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a large zip bag. Add the veggies and let them marinate in the fridge for about an hour. Turn the bag over halfway through.
  2. Spray the grill pan with a small amount of cooking spray and heat pan over medium heat. Using tongs, place the veggies in the pan. I recommend putting as many slices of bell pepper on as you can because they'll take the longest to cook. I also suggest flattening them out a little so that you can turn them over to cook both sides. The zucchini and eggplant will take about 3-4 minutes per side.
  3. I continued cooking all of the zucchini and eggplant, transferring the cooked slices to a large sheet of foil and sealing it up while everything else cooked. Everything stayed nice and hot. I then added the onions while the peppers continued to cook.
  4. Once the vegetables are cooked, start assembling your sandwiches! (You can toast the bread first, if you'd like). Spread on some hummus, add the veggies, basil and of course, a few beautiful slices of avocado. Enjoy!
