Roasted Vegetables with Hummus Sandwich

Catering a vegetarian retreat last week, I decide to make a roasted vegetable sandwich. I purchase a loaf of ciabatta and slice it through horizontally. Using my Hummus recipe (see the archive), I swipe a generous amount on both sides. Oven roasting the eggplant, Walla Walla sweet onions, and red peppers makes quick work of the filling. Layering the veggies onto the bread, I top it with Swiss cheese and fresh basil leaves. I want the sandwiches of manageable size. Using the bamboo skewers with the little loop tie on the end, I insert them into the loaf before cutting the serving portions. This stabilizes the filling as I cut. Simple, beautiful and tasty, these sandwiches pair great with any number of summer salads.
