Grilled Roasted Veggie Sandwiches with Hummus & Avocado

Pin It
I would have to say that really, the only slightly difficult thing about switching to an entirely Earthfood based lifestyle, is probably giving up the restaurant comfort foods that I have always turned to. That being said, in the 7 weeks since I started this Season of Vegan thing, I've found many replacements that are suitable, if not better than my original loves.

This lil' sammy qualifies for submission to the

We have this little sandwich shop here in town called Bison Witches and I have always loved the veggie sandwich I got there. It was warm and melty and gooey, loaded with fresh vegetables and cream cheese and provolone.

Seeing as how I'm not eating dairy anymore, I was wondering if it would be possible to get the same great flavors of this sandwich I love so much without the cheese. I decided that adding a zippy, lemony, garlic hummus to this sandwich, then grilling (ya know, grilled cheese style) would give it that creamy buttery taste I was looking for. It did. And Holy Crap was it good.

Here's what I put in this here lil' Samich:

Slice, drizzle with olive oil, S&P and roast at 350 for 30 minutes:
Portobella Mushroom 
Yellow Squash 
Red Pepper 

For Hummus whirl around in food processor: 
1 can chickpeas 
2 T Tahini 
3 T Lemon Juice 
4 cloves minced garlic 
1 tsp salt (more or less to taste) 
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
drizzle of olive oil 

~~ Add more lemon juice and/or olive oil until desired consistency

Build yo' Samich:
On a piece of Rye Bread layer up your hummus and roasted veggies, along with some freshly sliced onions, tomato, and avocado. Top with more rye bread (duh). Your sandwich should be HUGE.

Butter both sides generously with Earth Balance Butter and grill until golden brown, smooshing down with a spatula while grilling.

 You could use a Panini grill too, if you had one. I'm old school and not that fancy... however, if someone would like to buy my a panini grill I certainly wouldn't protest. I'll take a VitaMix too, while you're at it.

My blogger friend Cadry got a VitaMix for Valentine's Day. I'm super jealous ;)

What kind of kitchen gadgets do you wish you had?

  2. I turned my George Foreman (no longer used to be a lean, mean, MEAT grilling machine, of course) into a panini press...works just like a charm!

    I actually went to Bison Witches last week and had their veggie sandwich without the cheese and it was still delicious! :)

    1. It's official. You're a genius.
      That thought had not even crossed my mind, and I totally have a GF grill! I'll be back... I have to go George Foreman a sandwich ;)

  3. This sandwich sounds so tangy and delicious! Is there anything that hummus doesn't improve?

    The next kitchen gadget on my wish list is a dehydrator. I've been enjoying a lot of raw cookbooks lately, and I'm eager to explore the creative possibilities in dehydrating!

    1. I harbor a love for hummus as great as my love for peanut butter... both of which I oftentimes eat straight up with a spoon.

      Oooooh.... a dehydrator! I have never considered that. The only thing lately that I've gotten a hankering to dry is fruit leather/roll-upy type things for Miss M. I'm very curious to hear about your dehydration experiments once you get it :)

  4. Yummmmmm! This sounds amazing. I can't wait to try it! I love your blog :)

    1. Thank you! I'm so glad you're here!

      This sandwich was delicious! The next day I wanted another sandwich, but didn't feel like taking the time to roast more veggies, so instead I used just the hummus, thick slices of tomatoes, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes and then grilled it in the same fashion. So Good!!


Hiya! Love hearing from you... it's my fave.
