Picnic anyone?

If you are having a lovely weather in your area {like I am} you probably feel like spending your days outside... I said, enough of posting decor ideas for porches and patios {at least for today!} and let's have a little something much more yummy. A Picnic snack idea!

Open Face Ratatouille Sandwiches


Ingredients
  • 1 small eggplant, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small zucchini or yellow summer squash, cut into 3/4-inch slices
  • 1 medium red sweet pepper, cut in strips
  • 1/2 of a small red onion, cut in 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. herbes de Provence or dried thyme, crushed
  • 2 medium plum tomatoes, each cut lengthwise in 6 wedges
  • 8 small or 4 large 1/2-inch slices whole wheat or white French bread, toasted (about 8 oz. total)
  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh thyme sprigs (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large shallow roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add eggplant, zucchini, sweet pepper, and onion to prepared pan. Drizzle olive oil; sprinkle herbes de Provence, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Toss to coat. Roast vegetables 30 minutes, tossing once. Add tomatoes to roasting pan. Roast 15 to 20 minutes more or until vegetables are tender and some surface areas are lightly browned.

2. Meanwhile, rub toasted bread with cut sides of the garlic clove. Place two small slices or one large slice of the bread on each of four serving plates. Sprinkle balsamic vinegar over vegetables; toss gently to coat. Spoon warm vegetables on bread. If desired, garnish with fresh thyme sprigs. Makes 4 servings.

This looks delicious! I have a similar recipe, but without the bread for the non-gluten and carb free diet.

Cheers!
