Very good, Mirj and quick to make. We used Gardenburger brand "Chik'n" Veggie patties! Irony of ironies, CG hates eggplant, but my niece gave me a jar of Trader Joe's red pepper spread with eggplant and garlic awhile back and it was surprisingly delicious and perfect for this sandwich. The only addition was a few slices of red onion on each sandwich. Served with local cottage cheese, slices of Tuscan melon, corn on the cob! Perfect lunch! Thanks for posting the recipe! cg ;)
