Mini Veggie Sandwiches

Whenever I cook for parties I'm super conscious about creating enough treats for vegetarians. A couple weeks ago, I made sliders (or mini beef burgers) for a BBQ, so I decided to make a veggie version too.
To delight your vegetarian friends with a yummy appetizer, do this:

1. Slice two zucchinis crosswise into half inch thick pieces.

2. Cut the same amount of tomato slices or roasted red peppers. Either one will work.

3. Slice the same amount of cucumber slices.

4. Make a garlicky bean spread. Or use store bought hummus.

5. Salt, pepper and douse your zucchini with olive oil. Then grill it at medium high heat until you get nice grill marks. Maybe two or three minutes a side.

5. Slice up a baguette.

6. Spread bean spread on the baguettes.

7. Stuff zucchini, cucumbers and tomatoes or red peppers in between the bread and spread.

Enjoy mini veggie sandwiches!



  1. Oh that looks so yummy. I love grilled zucchini!

  2. I love Zucchini too!!! I just picked 3 today! I am trying to pick them(find them) when they are 8 inches and not baseball bats :) So this is a great heavy appy for the summer or just when you want cocktail food that fills the tummy!! Thanks

  3. By the way I went to your site today to find the cauliflower recipe! I have an abundance of broccoli from the garden and that is my favorite way to eat it!!! (same way for b.)
