  • Butternut pumpkin, 2 cup(s) (diced), cut into 1cm thick pieces
  • Eggplant, 1 small, cut into 6-8 rounds
  • Red capsicum, ½ capsicum(s), quartered, seeds removed
  • Zucchini, 1 small, halved crossways, thinly sliced
  • Olive oil spray, 6 spray(s)
  • Pepper, any type, ground, 1 pinch(es)
  • Dried mixed herbs, 2 teaspoon(s), or Italian seasoning
  • Ricotta cheese, reduced-fat, ⅓ cup(s)
  • Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoon(s)
  • Burgen bread, any type, 4 slice(s)
  • Cheddar cheese, reduced-fat (15% fat), 50 g, sliced

Method

Place the pumpkin in a single layer onto a microwave-safe plate. Cover with damp paper towel. Microwave for 3 to 4 minutes on High/100% until pumpkin is just tender. Transfer to a tray. Add the remaining vegetables to tray. Spray both sides with oil and season.

Preheat a barbecue plate or grill pan on medium-high. Cook the pumpkin for 4 minutes each side, the eggplant, capsicum and zucchini for 3 minutes each side, or until vegetables are just tender. Remove to a tray, sprinkle over the mixed herbs and set aside to cool.

Mix the ricotta and mustard together. Spread evenly between 2 slices of bread. Top with chargrilled vegetables then cheddar. Sandwich with remaining slice of bread. Lightly spray both sides of the sandwiches with oil. Cook in a sandwich press or non-stick frying pan until toasted. Cut in half and serve.

TIPS:

  • You can buy chargrilled vegetables from the deli of most supermarkets, just make sure they are not in oil. This sandwich is just as delicious served untoasted.
  • You can make 1 sandwich and store half the vegetables and ricotta in separate airtight containers in the fridge for 2 to 4 days, to make a sandwich for later in the week.
