Roasted Vegetable Sandwich

Roasted Vegetable SandwichHere’s another quick and delicious meat-free meal idea for you that’s perfect for summer time or any time, really! It’s so simple I’m not even sure I can call it a recipe. It’s versatile too. Prefer to grill the vegetables? That works. Rather have a salad? Just place the vegetables on top of a bed of mixed greens. Or chop up the vegetables and put them over whole wheat pasta or brown rice. But I have to tell you, tonight I made these as sandwiches for Meatless Monday and they were so delicious. …And you thought it was hard to come up with a meat-free dinner. I’ve got you covered.
