Sauteed Red Pepper Sandwich

I debated whether to post this recipe or not, as it is more an idea for a sandwich than an actual recipe. I had some lovely vegetables that were feeling neglected, and decided to saute them up and make a sandwich out of them. This combination would also work well on pasta.

Almost any kind of cheese would work here, but goat cheese lends itself well to anything with red bell peppers for some reason. Feel free to substitute something else, of course!

Sauteed Red Pepper Sandwich
makes 2


1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
3 small red bell peppers, seeded and chopped
1 bunch thin asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons oil-packed sun dried tomatoes, chopped
pinch of salt
a handful of goat cheese crumbles
4 slices of whole grain or multi-grain bread


1. Heat oil and garlic over medium heat in a large skillet. Cook for about 1 minute, or until garlic is starting to turn golden. Add peppers, asparagus, and sun-dried tomatoes and stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes, or until vegetables are just starting to soften.

2. Put goat cheese crumbles on two sices of bread, and top each with half the vegetable mixture. Close up your sandwich and eat!
