Breakfast RecipesGrilled Mediterranean Vegetable Sandwich

Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Sandwich

Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable sandwich, is made with roasting veggies on tawa and stuffed inside the sandwich. Usually i make corn spinach sandwich and open bread masala sandwich for kids. I have watched a recipe of Mediterranean sandwich recipe in Venkatesh bhat show last year. When i recently, saw a pack of Panini bread in Fairprice shop, it reminded me of this sandwich recipe and tried at home. Since the video visuals are clear in my mind, i just went ahead and tried it for kids lunch box last week. To my surprise it was a huge hit, especially Varun who is bit fussy about trying new foods, loved it a lot. I had a pack of whole meal bread at home so wanted the sandwich using with that. Try this recipe and home and let me know how it turned out. Check out the notes section for variations.
We had this sandwich along with a pineapple coconut water mocktail. Will post the recipe soon.

  1. Instead of zucchini, you can use eggplants too. Use the big one which we use for baingan bhartha.
  2. The sandwich can be made in sandwich maker too instead of making in the tawa.
  3. You can add blanched broccoli, mushroom, tofu or paneer, sweet corn to the sandwich.
  4.  I used whole wheat bread, use any bread of your choice.
  5. You can use cheese slices too.
