Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Recipe Summary

Preparation time: 25 minutes

Number of servings: 6


    • 6 whole-wheat hamburger buns
    • 6 large Portobello mushrooms
    • 6 large red bell peppers
    • 6 slices red onion, sliced 1/2 inch thick
    • 1/2 cup low-fat Mozzarella cheese, shredded


Begin by grilling all the vegetables carefully so they do not fall apart.

Once the vegetables are grilled, place them on the bottom half of the buns. Sprinkle the veggies with the cheese, letting the cheese melt onto the veggies. Place the top bun on each sandwich.

If desired, wrap whole sandwich in aluminum foil and place on warm grill to melt the cheese even more. Serve warm with carrots and cucumbers as sides.
