BM #87 Day 17  - 

This sandwich was an accidental find when my older one was looking for vegetable based sandwiches. As far as I understand she saw some ideas on her social media page and was confirming with me if she might like something like this. 

It has been since a favorite of hers and the husband wouldn't mind a sandwich or two as well. 

The key is to lightly toast the bread slices. I have learnt with experience that the zucchini when placed on the bread slices, will make it soggy. Toasting the bread makes it slightly immune to that.

When it comes to packing for the lunch box, wrap the cooled sandwich in a wax paper and then wrap it in a foil.

Ingredients - 

Bread Slices 4
Zucchini , sliced 1 small
Salt, Garlic Powder, Red Chili Powder as needed
Cheese, shredded or sliced as needed
Butter as needed (Optional)

Method Of Preparation -

In a hot, greased grill pan, arrange the zucchini slices and grill them until the grill marks are visible.

Remove onto a bowl, sprinkle salt, garlic powder and red chili powder and toss them so the slices are evenly coated with the spices.

Lightly toast the bread slices and set aside. [To ensure the sandwich doesn't get soggy.]

Arrange these seasoned zucchini slices on two bread slices, sprinkle cheese, cover with another bread slice, grill it until the grill marks are visible. Repeat for the other set of bread slices.

Allow it to cool on a wire rack, wrap it in a wax paper and foil wrap it to pack it for lunch.
