This is a hearty sandwich (sammy).
Oven 400 degrees (prewarm oven)
Rustic Ciabatta Rolls (fresh is nice) Pre warm rustic ciabatta rolls for 5 minutes)
Chop mediterranean olive mix (buy seeded) into a fine mince, adding some olive oil to allow easier spreading (OR use olive tepenade)
Spread Tepenade mixture on one side of roll and Tofutti (or real cream cheese if you prefer) on the other.
You can just have the sammy this way, or you can add “grilled or stir fried eggplant”, see below.
Wash, slice 1/2 in thick rounds of eggplant, dry and salt with unbleached sea salt, let sit 10 minutes.
Using olive oil, pepper, spices of choice, coat your eggplant pieces.
Grill in your couertop grill or pan “stir fry” (med-high heat but keep the veges moving) for about 8 minutes.
Sit the grilled eggplant on top of the olive tepenade mixture, let cool (only enough that cream cheese won’t melt) Serve open!
Wow!! Either way, with or without eggplant this is pHabulous!
Also, some people will prefer scrambled eggs instead of cream cheese and eggplant.
