You know what I haven't shared for a while? A new meatless main dish. I have still been doing a meatless dish for dinner one night a week. My husband and kids have come to look forward to these nights. I have several recipes that are always popular that I can go to, but I'm always searching for new ones to try out as well. Summertime brings a great range of new possibilities with grilling. Using the grill for meatless dishes is a really great idea because the grill often invokes a "meaty" flavor to veggies or whatever you are grilling. It kind of tricks your brain into thinking that you are eating meat when you are not. I got the idea for these sandwiches from Better Recipes. Grilled zucchini, squash, and mushrooms piled on a sandwich roll with creamy hummus. I put my own twist on it by marinating the veggies in Greek dressing and topping the sandwiches with tangy feta cheese. Not a chance of missing the meat with these awesome sandwiches!
Greek Grilled Veggie and Hummus Sandwiches
2 medium or large zucchini
2 medium or large yellow squash
8 oz. cremini mushrooms, sliced
Greek vinaigrette salad dressing
6 Sandwich rolls
Crumbled feta cheese
Sliced Kalamata olives
Cut zucchini and yellow squash into thin planks. Place them and the mushrooms into a large resealable bag. Pour Greek dressing in the bag, just enough to cover the veggies. Seal bag and marinate veggies in fridge for at least a couple of hours.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Remove veggies from bag and sprinkle with Greek seasoning. Grill on one side until grill marks form. Flip over and grill the other side until veggies are tender. Use a grill basket for the mushrooms.
Toast sandwich rolls if desired. Spread each sandwich roll with a smear of hummus, pile on the grilled veggies, and top with feta cheese and sliced olives.
Makes about 6 sandwiches.
This is what I mean by "planks". I used Ken's Greek Dressing, but any Greek dressing would be great. Of course, I used Penzey's for the Greek seasoning.
You can use any veggies you like, of course. Red pepper would be a great choice if you like that.
This is one heck of a sandwich!
