These roasted vegetable sandwiches are SO delicious! Earthy portobellos, sweet red peppers and zucchini, herby pesto, and creamy brie all perfectly housed in a multigrain ciabatta bun. Healthy and easy to make, these sandwiches make an excellent quick lunch or dinner.
I have a love affair with sandwiches, especially if you add melted cheese. A good grilled cheese sandwich is definitely one of life’s best gifts. I like to think of these roasted vegetable sandwiches with brie as a lighter, more nourishing and sophisticated version of a grilled cheese sandwich. Mushrooms, zucchini and red peppers are my favourite flavour combo with the pesto, but you could switch it up for any vegetables that you really love – maybe eggplant or sweet potato? The best part is that these sandwiches are ready in 25 minutes, with only 5 minutes of that as prep time.
How to make roasted vegetable sandwiches
Start by heating your oven to 450℉ and placing your sliced veggies on a large baking tray. I like to line my tray with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
Slice up your veggies. For the red peppers, I like to roast them in quarters, and for the portobello mushrooms and the zucchini, I like them in slices no more than 1/2 inch thick to ensure that they will roast fairly quickly. Brush the sides of the vegetables lightly with a small amout of cooking oil and season with salt and pepper.
Pop everything in the oven and roast for 20 minutes. When your veggies are done roasting, switch the oven setting to broil.
Begin assembling your sandwiches by placing some arugula on the bun, then add 1/3 of the veggies, top with some brie, and slather some pesto on the top half of your ciabatta bun.
Because melted brie is the best brie, we are going to put only the bottom half of the sandwich under the broiler for 30 seconds or so – you want to JUST melt the brie.
Top with the pesto covered half of the bun and enjoy!
