VEGAN: An Eggplant Tomato Bialy Sandwich You Will Want Over And Over Again

A sandwich recipe every party or event should have.

v 005dI love having sandwiches as they as easy as pie in making. They save me so much time when I get too tight up with my schedule especially when I have unexpected work to do at home and for my family. And this happens as well when we have planned parties but I only have myself to prepare all the food to serve. Yes, it is stressful but thankfully, there are recipes that are so easy to make.

Now, this sandwich recipe here is one of them. You can never go wrong in serving sandwiches for parties, small events or even for snacks with the family. They will always be a complete life saver. Given, the right ingredients and the right recipe, you can whip up something praise-worthy.

The eggplant in these sandwiches are great alternatives fro any meat product. So your non-vegan guests can enjoy a great tasting and healthy sandwich whenever you invite them over. They will probably even ask for the recipe after they take a bite. Try it out and tell me what you think.

Eggplant Tomato Bialy Sandwich

v 005e

Ingredients:

Eggplant – 1 small. Needs to be sliced into rounds & salted.

Heirloom Tomato – 1. Needs to be sliced.

A portion of mustard (preferably whole grain)

v 005b

Instructions:

  • Turn on the oven & heat to around  425°f/220°c
  • Add a baking sheet to your baking tray & cover lightly with olive oil.
  • Salt the eggplant, slice it & place onto the baking sheet. Once in place  cover the eggplant with a further light coating of olive oil.

  • Remove everything from the oven.
  • Add a generous, but even, spread of mustard to both sides of the roll.

  • Repeat the process for the second Bialy.
