Grilled Portobello, Bell Pepper, and Goat Cheese Sandwiches

by Erika Nicole Kendall

1/4  cup  balsamic vinegar
1  tablespoon  olive oil
1  garlic clove, minced
1  red bell pepper, cut in half and seeded
1  yellow bell pepper, cut in half and seeded
4  (4-inch) portobello mushroom caps
Cooking spray
1/3  cup  chopped fresh basil
1/4  teaspoon  salt
1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
4  (2-ounce) Kaiser rolls
1/2  cup  (4 ounces) soft goat cheese

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and garlic in a large bowl. Add bell peppers and portobello mushrooms; toss gently to coat. Remove vegetables from vinegar mixture, and discard vinegar mixture.

Place bell peppers and mushrooms on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side. Remove vegetables from grill; cool slightly. Cut bell peppers into thin strips. Combine bell peppers, basil, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl.

Cut rolls in half horizontally; spread cheese evenly over cut sides of rolls. Arrange 1 mushroom cap on bottom half of each roll; top each serving with about 1/3 cup bell pepper mixture and top half of roll.

Place sandwiches on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Place a cast-iron or other heavy skillet on top of sandwiches; press gently to flatten. Grill 3 minutes on each side or until bread is toasted (leave cast-iron skillet on sandwiches while they cook).

Kaiser roll? E R I K A – please discuss how to include (or if we should exclude) bread with clean eating. Sometimes I just get so frustrated I RUN fro the bread section (almost in tears). Thanks!

Hmmm… sure, we can talk about it. Eat bread. Not with every meal… it’s unnecessary. Not every day… it’s boring.

If you have any questions beyond that post, let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them. <3
