This is basically my favorite sandwich recipe ever. 😉 Keith and I love to bring these when we go camping or hiking, they are such a treat in the wilderness or even indoors! This batch went down especially well at California Extreme, the annual vintage arcade and pinball game expo in Santa Clara, CA. This is a classic New Orleans recipe from the essential cookbook Veganomicon, by Isa Chandra Moscowitz & Terry Hope Romero, page 100. To compile such a delicious sandwich you first roast slices of eggplant in the oven while you make an olive relish. Then you layer these goodies with roasted red peppers and marinated spinach on slices of bread (we used ciabatta), wrap the sammies up tight in aluminum foil, and press them in the refrigerator overnight until the flavors blend. We added some shredded Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese for good measure. Delicious served hot or cold.
