Easy Peasy Veggie Sammies

In the spirit of keeping things simple, I love taking the fresh, local veggies that are available this time of year and making some quick and easy veggie sandwiches for lunch or dinner. Just start with any veggies you have on hand…..


and start chopping. I just throw them all in a big bowl…..


and add olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.


And now it’s time to just empty it all onto a big pan to pop in the oven at 375 degrees or into a grill basket and put on the grill.


While the veggies are cooking, I slice up a couple of pieces of bread and, in this case, grate some fresh mozzarella. I also like it with feta or goat cheese but this is what I had on hand.


When the veggies are almost done, I add a few tomatoes and return it to the oven until the tomatoes are soft.


And, that’s all there is to it! I heap the veggies on some toasted bread, add the cheese and dinner is served!


It’s fast, easy, delicious and healthy. What could be simpler. And I love that it can be done on the grill on those days when it’s just too hot to put the oven on.

Hope you’re all taking advantage of the fabulous produce available this time of year. Have a wonderful week.

    I’m with you all the way on this, especially adding the tomatoes at the end. Have you ever tried par-cooking onions, poblano peppers and potatoes in the microwave with a splash of olive oil and salt, then putting them in a grill basket … with raw tomatoes added at the end? It’s like shishkabob without all the effort. And whatever isn’t eaten with dinner makes great leftovers for omelets.

    This looks delicious. I never thought of eating vegetables this way, and there’s still plenty of summer left to try it. I enjoyed your last post with the quilt photos. My mother left a few quilt tops to be finished, and I’m slowly making my way through. I’m not a great quilter, but enjoy finishing these projects for her.

      I would love to finish the quilt tops, Karen. For some reason, I take them out and look at them and then fold them back up and put them away. One of these days……

    Mmmmm My mouth is watering right now! I love a good veggie sandwich! I cheated today and purchased some chicken salad from the store and made myself a chicken salad sandwich but your idea is much better!

    Yum : ) I sort of headed in this direction cooking this week, too. I bought a gluten free pizza crust, arranged thin slices of colorful peppers, squash, Kalamata olives, and tomatoes on the crust, and sprinkled Italian seasoning and dairy free cheese on it, and baked it…and enjoyed eating it too in spite of the free of this and that part : ) xx

      I do a lot of gluten free too, Gracie. I found a product called cup-4-cup which is great for baking.
      Enjoy your trip to California!

    Looks delicious….simple summer meails with fresh vegetables and fruits can’t be beat! Another rendition of this is using some veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower and peppers, carrots etc and just mixing a little soy sauce and italian salad dressing in….not much…just to lightly season and then roast. I know the combo sounds weird but I did it ages ago when my kids were young and it tasted great, they liked it, and I’ve done it ever since to serve with rice ! :) In the summer it would just go on the grill in Reynolds Wrap.

      You really make it appear really easy together with your preetntasion but I in finding this matter to be actually one thing which I think I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m taking a look ahead in your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!

    I thought you were going to pop the middle out of that bread and stuff it all in!!
    I have a vegetarian friend coming over for dinner this weekend and I don’t now what to cook, I think I’m going to do something just simple and easy like this.

      Welcome, Karen, so glad you’re here. I’m not a vegetarian, I just love all these flavors mixed together, especially with your favorite cheese on top.

      Hi Tammy – Thank you so much for stopping by. Another tomato sandwich lover, I see. That’s my Sunday dinner quite often during the summer, paired up with whatever I pick up at the farmer’s market. I try to eat lots of whole foods, but I must confess to a sweet tooth – I love it all!

      I agree about the bounty of veggies this time of year, Kim. I’m just thinking of making some pesto with the pile of basil I have – it freezes so well.

      Thanks so much for visiting my blog, Sherry. Yes, you’re right – healthy and delicious. It balanced out the yummy peach crumble with homemade ice cream I had the day before!
