Grilled Vegetable Sandwich

While kids are usually adverse to vegetables, they're more likely to enjoy them when they've been given a little bit of a flavor treatment from a barbecue. Chef David Seigal of Chelsea's Table likes to grill his and serve them on a sandwich with a homemade goat cheese spread, and the kids really enjoy it.

Ingredients

  • 2 green zucchinis, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 yellow squash, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 Cup goat cheese, softened
  • 1 Teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 1 Teaspoon chopped thyme
  • 1 Teaspoon chopped rosemary
  • 8 slices bread, preferably flatbread or ciabatta

Directions

Preheat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium high. Grill the zucchini, squash, and red peppers until well charred and just tender. Set aside.

Grilled Vegetable Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Grilled Vegetable Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
