Ciabatta Veggie Sandwich

Yesterday I went food shopping and for some odd reason could not stay away from the bakery section. No matter what I did, I kept forgetting to pick up something from one of the aisles close to the bakery shop. The smell of fresh baked bread was calling my name. Remember when you’re watching a movie about ghosts and how one character always seems to be hearing his or her name called? I usually feel this way. Creepy! But instead, it was the smell of fresh baked bread calling my name. And this is how the Ciabatta Veggie Sandwich was created.

I always say to myself that I can survive on bread and water, and that is true. I love bread!

After finally choosing a Demi Ciabatta bread, my mind was full of ideas. I decided to go into the produce section and started picking up some veggies. Eggplant, mushroom, tomatoes, sweet peppers and onions. When those vegetables are mixed, you experience a burst of earthy, citrus and sweet flavor all at once. These veggies don’t require much, just a few spices to bring out their flavors individually.

I did not want to cook all the vegetables together because I had no intention of making a veggie stew. I learned a long time ago when making a veggie sandwich; each vegetable must be cooked separately so each flavor could stand out with each bite.

The Ciabatta Veggie Sandwich was so easy to make, and only one pan was required which meant one pan to clean. Yeah! Who needs to wash tons of dishes after a long day of work? Certainly not me. 

Enjoy!
