Veggie Dinner Sandwich

Veggie Dinner Sandwich

Hungry & Lazy, but still don’t want to take the bread and cheese route? Try this one, you wont regret it….
Here’s what you need:
1 japanese eggplant, cut lenghtwise (soak it in salty water for 5 minutes)
1 shallot, sliced
1 portobello mushroom, sliced
olive oil
paprika
balsamic vinegar
honey
lemon juice
1 haas avocado
salt & pepper to taste
Heat up 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet, when its hot put in the eggplant slices, sprinkle salt, pepper & paprika , turn and add the same ingredients. Keep turning it until golden and a bit charred on both sides, set aside.
Add more oil to the skillet (about 2 tablespoons) and throw in the shallots and toss them around until golden, then add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar and 1 teaspoon of honey (to help those shallots caramelise). Sprinkle salt & pepper to taste (not too much).
While the mushrooms are cooking, open one haas avocado in half and spoon it out in a bowl, add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, pepper and drizzle olive oil, mix well and set aside.
Turn the mushrooms off (you want them firm, not too mushy)
Slice a baguette open and toast it a bit to get some texture going.
Spread the avocado paste on the baguette, then layer up the eggplant slices and top with the mushrooms and caramelized shallots.
Yeah, you’re welcome….
