Breadless Sandwich

Craving a big bite out of a nice sandwich? Me too. It happens to the best of us. While most often I go for my almond butter and blackberry option, sometimes, I use eggplant as bread, and go for this vegetable friendly paradise:

  • 2 long slices of washed eggplant, 1/4 inch thick each
  • 1 washed tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 2 pieces lettuce of your choice
  • Yellow mustard to taste
Makes 1 sandwich.

  1. Place eggplant pieces under broiler for 2 minutes, then remove and cool.
  2. Stack your tomato, avocado, lettuce and mustard on the first piece of eggplant just as you would if you were making something along the lines of a BLT.
  3. Top with the second piece of eggplant.
  4. Cut in half, and enjoy your veggies foodie friends!! Will you try tricking your mind into believing you're eating a real sandwich?

    1. LOL!! I guess I can replace B with A. Avocado, lettuce, tomato :)

  3. this is GENIUS. I don't have a wheat intolerance but I eat mostly gluten free anyway - mostly because the bread of sandwiches gets in the way of all the interior goodness. This is a perfect way to get around that, and it sounds delicious.

  4. Such a good idea! AND so yummy!! I used hummus (that I made from Cauliflower) instead of mustard. Keep posting recipes for me to try :)

    1. YAY!!!! And OMG that cauliflower hummus sounds amazing. xoxo!

  5. This is amazing! I tweaked the recipe though.
    I drizzled a touch of extra virgin olive oil on one side of each slice of eggplant and placed grilled side down. Then sprinkled fresh cracked pepper on the side facing up. I spread the avocado on one slice and roasted garlic clove on the other. Instead of the lettuce and mustard I added a roasted red pepper.

  6. I am going to make this with turkey, tomato and hummus. I'll let you know if it's just as yum. I cannot eat avocados.

  7. Could use Jamaican breadfruit too.
