Roasted Veg SandwichFor the sloppiest sandwich ever, look no further.  Tons of spicy roasted veggies and a quick guac topped with my Sweet & Tangy Green Chile-Chipotle-Cilantro Dressing.  Go at it with a fork and knife or bare hands and a bib.

(I shared this recipe on The Veggie Nook for Healthy Vegan Friday!)

Mexican-Spiced Roasted Vegetable Sandwiches
Makes 4-5

Roasted Vegetables:
1 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup Bragg Liquid Aminos
1 heaping tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. dried onion flakes
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. Chipotle Tabasco
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, halved and sliced thinly
1 small eggplant, sliced into rounds
1 small yellow squash, sliced into rounds
1 small zucchini, sliced into rounds
4-5 cremini mushrooms, quartered
4-5 baby red or white potatoes, thinly sliced
juice of 1/2 a lime
chopped cilantro, for garnish

Guacamole:
2 avocados
1/2 tsp. cumin
splash Chipotle Tabasco
juice of 1/2 a lime

Sweet & Tangy Green Chile-Chipotle-Cilantro Dressing, to taste

4 really good, crusty rolls (that’s homemade pan Siciliano in the photos), sliced

Make the vegetables:
Preheat the oven to 425F. In a large bowl, combine the broth through the potatoes and toss to coat the veggies with the sauce.

Roast the vegetables until tender – stirring occasionally – for 25-30 minutes. You can serve these right away, stirring in the lime juice and cilantro, or eat at room temperature.

Make the guacamole:
In a small bowl, mash the avocado with the cumin, Tabasco, and lime juice. Set aside.

Build the sandwich:
Lightly toast or warm the bread halves. Divide the guacamole between the bottom halves of the bread. Top with roasted veggies, drizzle with dressing and sprinkle on more cilantro, if desired.

    That BREAD!! The bread is what really makes a sandwich and my goodness this sandwich is MADE! YUM!

  4. emmycooks says:

    That looks amazing! Way to improve the outlook for my next few zucchini.

  5. Somer says:

    Now, that’s a SANDWICH!!! Did you make the bread too? Oh my goodness girl….

    • It’s a monster, fer sure! Yes – the bread is wonderful. Pan Siciliano from Peter Reinhart’s wonderful book. It’s not the most unrefined bread, but sometimes…sometimes I just want a good, crusty, sort-of-white bread.

      • Somer says:

        My mom has that book. Blast it all. I was drooling my brains out over it at her house. Hey, I eat whole grains often enough, that every once in a while, white bread is a very delicious treat.

  6. Poppy says:

    Yum yum yum! That is my kind of sandwich! :D

  7. Pixie says:

    My mouth is watering just looking at the picture! What a unique creation. :D I shall share this with my son-in-law who adores Mexican anything and sandwiches in particular.

  8. My husband would differ but I’m not sure my mouth is big enough for that first bite? Wow, what a combo of flavors. I tried out your nut trick for thickening my vinaigrette and it worked like a charm too! Love the sandwich bread on this one too…a meal in itself ;)

    After going at it with my bare hands I would have to go at making another one! This looks amazing Annie…amazing and soul satisfying and scrumptious and delectable and just about every single superlative that I can think of! You just nailed my new summer favourite and it isn’t even over winter here yet! :)

  10. brandi says:

    Looks amazing annie! Mexican flavors are some of my favorite. I could go to town on that sandwich and drink that dressing! haha!

  11. Richa says:

    oooh i love a messy messy sammie.. those flavors.. yummers!more dressing i say more!

  12. Another one of your creations I just want to reach through the computer and chow down! Looks amazing, delish, messy and finger-lickin’ awesome!

  13. P.S. a perfect post for Santa Barbara–it’s day one of Old Spanish Days, or just FIESTA!

  14. Louis says:

    I saw the recipe show up on FB, and thought this looked really good, AND it fit with my diet. I got all the ingredients, and gave it a try…. DELICIOUS! Not that hart to make. Only thing I found was that the roasting time was longer, because of the potatoes. Next time, I’ll start the potatoes a little early, and add the other veggies a little later…. and the Dressing, well that was delicious, my choice of Logger, Samuel Adams ;-) I’m now a follower.

  15. Yum, this looks great. I love a saucy sammich!

  16. Sophie33 says:

    Yum Yum Yum Yum! What a lovely & very appetizing sandwich! MMMMMM!

  17. What a lunch! This looks terrific!

  18. I would most definitely bare hand this ;) I loooove messy food! Thanks for sharing it at HVF :)

    Always looking for new flavors to roast veggies with. This sounds great. Am also intrigued by your oil free dressings and using nuts in place of oil – it is probably the place where I consume the most oil – right there on my humble salad!

    • I know, right? You’ve got that mess of health in a bowl and then dagshnabit if it oil doesn’t come in and ruin it all ;-)! I promise you that you will not miss the oil one tiny bit. (And anyway, what are nuts except…fat – which we love!)

      • biggsis says:

        And I love nuts much more than oil anyway – much better flavor. I’m just used to using oil – time to bust out :-)
