Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Tartine

Yesterday’s White Bean-Chive Hummus lay the foundation for today’s hugely flavorful (and also quite healthy) Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Tartines.

The term “tartine” simply refers to an open-faced sandwich. You want to start with a nice-sized slice of grilled bread for this one to accommodate a good layer of hummus and a mound of these incredible marinated grilled vegetables. I first let the eggplant, zucchini and bell peppers get comfortable in an herb paste of aromatic dried herbs, olive oil and balsamic vinegar then grilled them in quick batches on the panini maker. I added some rings of grilled red onion and sprinklings of feta and chives. I didn’t think it was possible to enjoy an open-faced vegetable sandwich this much!

I love Mediterranean grilled vegetables. What a lovely sandwich idea. I’m going to switch out the bread for gluten-free, and chow down.

Nice! I love roasted vegetables, and you can’t go wrong adding some feta cheese! You’ve chosen some really nice vegetables for this recipe, too – love the addition of japanese eggplant!

I make a curried vegetable tart (also with feta cheese) that’s another winner – give it a try!
