Green Sandwich

With grocery shopping pending for a few days now, I had to prepare lunch with what I had on hand. And, I didn’t have much. I scoured the fridge and put together a ‘Green Sandwich’. Lunch with a theme wouldn’t hurt, after all.

Green Sandwich

Ingredients

Sandwich bread – 4 slices
Zucchini – 1, small
Green bell pepper – 1
Spring onions/Scallions - few
Swiss or Gruyere cheese – 4 slices
Egg – 4
Butter – 2 tbsp
Cilantro or Parsley
Salt
Pepper

Method

Cut zucchini into thin strips and bell pepper into 8. Cut scallions the same size as the other vegetables.

Heat a pan and sear the vegetables on high heat for 2 minutes on each side. You can, alternately, grill them. Season them with salt and pepper and set aside.

Apply butter to the bread on both sides and toast them. When they are still hot, place the cheese slices on top of the bread and remove from heat. The residual heat from the bread will melt the cheese. Pile the roasted vegetables on top of the cheese.

Melt butter in the pan, crack open the eggs and fry them to your desired level of doneness. Season them with salt and pepper and place the fried eggs on top of the sandwich. Sprinkle with finely chopped cilantro and enjoy this open faced sandwich when its hot.
