Aged balsamic vinegar and whole grain mustard conjure unearthly flavor from Portobello mushroom, eggplant, bell pepper, onion and zucchini. Tillamook Provolone, sundried tomato pesto, and olive tapenade top off this dense, Focaccia roll feast.
“This sandwich is one of the most popular vegetarian options in the shop. We use whatever vegetables are in season. The vegetables take on an amazing flavor with the aged balsamic vinegar and French whole grain mustard. If you don’t have the time to roast the vegetables yourself, most grocery stores have great roasted veggie options in their deli sections. You can simply toss them with your favorite balsamic vinaigrette to get the same delicious effect.
This sandwich is a press. At the shop we use steak weights to smash them down. At home, top your sandwich with a smaller skillet or pan and weigh it down with a can. You’ll get the same effect.” – Andy Paxson of simplethings
