Favorite Ingredients Friday (Vegetarian Edition)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday Vegetarian Edition recipe exchange! Please share your favorite vegetarian dishes today!

My recipe this week is a delicious alternative to a meat filled sandwich! I think your family will love it as much as mine does.

Grilled Veggie Sandwich

  1. 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  2. 3 cloves garlic, minced

  3. 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  4. 1/8 cup olive oil

  5. 1 cup sliced red bell peppers

  6. 1 small zucchini, sliced

  7. 1 red onion, sliced

  8. 1 small yellow squash, sliced

  9. 2 (4-x6-inch) focaccia bread pieces, split horizontally

  10. 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Set aside in the refrigerator.

  2. Preheat the grill for high heat.

  3. Brush vegetables with olive oil on each side. Brush grate with oil. Place bell peppers and zucchini closest to the middle of the grill, and set onion and squash pieces around them.

  4. Cook for about 3 minutes, turn, and cook for another 3 minutes. The peppers may take a bit longer. Remove from grill, and set aside.

  5. Spread some of the mayonnaise mixture on the cut sides of the bread, and sprinkle each one with feta cheese. Place on the grill cheese side up, and cover with lid for 2 to 3 minutes. This will warm the bread, and slightly melt the cheese. Watch carefully so the bottoms don't burn. Remove from grill, and layer the with vegetables. Enjoy as open faced grilled sandwiches.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday Vegetarian recipe! Remember, I won't be able to visit all of your recipes today until after I get home from work. But fear not, I will stop by to visit your recipe as soon as I can!

Thank you so much for hosting this each week. I don't always submit recipes because I am not the best cook in the world, but I enjoy seeing others peoples ideas, and stealing them from time to time.

Hmmm - I love any breads and that sandwich looks so delicious.

I was considering not posting since I'm so darn late (got caught up writing a new e-book and when I'm on a roll...) but since it's vegetarian and mine was coincidentally vegetarian too, well, here it is.

I'm making lunch for my sewing group soon, and veggie sandwiches sounds perfect. Thanks!

We made this tonight for dinner and it was DELICIOUS! And truly it took just minutes to prep--we have a veggie basket for the gril so we used that rather than directly on the rack.
