For the eggplant, preheat the grill. Mix the olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and 1/2 tsp. of the basil together. Slice the eggplants lengthwise into half-inch slices. Brush the slices on both sides with the olive oil mixture. Grill the eggplant slices until they become soft in the center, about 2-3 minutes on each side.

For the sandwiches, mix the cheese, the remaining tsp. of basil, salt and pepper together. Set aside. Spread 4 halves of bread with the cheese mixture, then top with the spinach or arugula, a slice of tomato and a few slices of eggplant. Place the other half of the bread on top.

Yield: 4 servings

  • Sounds delicious. I make a similar recipe with ricotta cheese and fresh whole milk salted mozzarella. It's the Italian in me!
