Yup.. this has to be the very best veggie sammie I’ve ever made… if you love roasted veggies, like me, I’m sure you’ll love this one. It’s very simple so I didn’t use my normal recipe page, but I did want to share this combination since it’s becoming my favorite go to meal!
First, I sliced eggplant and placed it onto a lined cookie sheet. Then I sprinkled each slice with a little bit of salt and let it sit for 20 minutes to draw the excess moisture out. I sliced a tomato and onion and placed them on the cookie sheet. Then, I drizzled all of the veggies with a little bit of EVOO and put them in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes or until everything looked just right (aka below). While the veggies were cooking, I sauteed up about 2 cups of fresh spinach. Then, I just sliced a WW focaccia roll, drizzled some balsamic vinaigrette on both pieces and popped it in the oven for 5 minutes. I put all of the veggies on my bread, topped it with 1 ounce fresh goat cheese (sorry guys the cheese is hiding!), put the top on (hehe), and took many enjoyable bites… I think what makes this sandwich unlike any other is the roasted tomatoes and the carmelized onions… I love tomatoes and roasting them just makes them even better… yum!
Come on… who wouldn’t want to dig into this guy?
Yesterday I spent wonderful day w/ my mom & grandmom getting pedicures at Toppers Spa. It was so much fun! I think this might be the first time I have put feet on the blog, but I just love the color – isn’t it so “spring”?
After we got our tootsies all painted and pampered, we headed over to Blue Sage for lunch. I have been meaning to come back to Blue Sage for over a year (after dining there with some fellow foodies!),but someone I kept forgetting about it. After yesterday’s fabulous veggie-filled lunch, Iwill not forget about it any longer! What I love about Blue Sage the most is that it’s all about the veggies and the menu is completely tofu-free and soy-free. Now don’t get me wrong, I like tofu, but the fact that they create dishes simply around the veggies entices me a little bit more
I have been battling a sore throat so I ordered a green tea with honey and lemon… I love this cup & saucer!
For my entree, I ordered the Farmhouse Cubano which had grilled eggplant, brie (SO GOOD!), oven roasted tomatoes, roasted garlic rosemary aoili & lots of spinach…
I was seriously contemplating only eating half and then having the other half later in the day but it was just too good to stop eating
If you are a vegetarian,vegan, or just someone who loves veggies like me and live in the Bucks County /Philly area, you have to make a trip to Blue Sage… it is a quaint spot with a really friendly staff with a really appealing menu!
