Grilled Eggplant Sandwich

Grilled Eggplant SandwichThis Grilled Eggplant Sandwich recipe is both filling and delicious. It’s good on its own, or pairs well with a side salad or a bowl of tomato soup.

If you have a panini press, this recipe would also make a great panini. But we don’t have one so we made a regular grilled eggplant sandwich, instead.

This recipe packs 11 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein that’ll fill you up and keep you satisfied until dinner. Eggplant is a great source of fiber but very low calorie so it’s a good part of your diet if weight loss is your goal.
