Vegan Grilled Cheese – no kids allowed

When I was a vegetarian in college I lived off of grilled cheese sandwiches. The combinations I came up with were strange, adventurous and often questionable, but they were always awesome!
Some call me a grilled cheese expert, a connesuar if you will. But I am not your typical girl, and therefore these aren’t your typical grilled cheese sandwiches… This classy treat is meant to be eaten along side a glass of red wine and sexy jazz. Definitely not for children.

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for the Wicked ‘Wich of the West Grilled Cheese

4 slices vegan whole grain bread (bread is the key ingredient, you a screw up the whole recipe by choosing shitty bread! go to your local bakery and splurge on an open crumb whole grain loaf)
Daiya, I like to use combination of cheddar and mozzarella
2 tbsp olive oil
olive tapenade
Organic carrots
Organic asparagus

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Wash vegetables and toss in a tiny but of olive oil, to lightly coat them and place on a baking sheet. Roast in oven for 15-25 mins, turning once.

Heat olive oil in a skillet. While you are heating, spread the tapenade on one side of both pieces of bread. Put the daiya in the middle and top with roast carrots or asparagus , create a sandwich. When the oil is hot, place the sandwich in it, and grill for a few minutes, flip it over, allowing the other side to grill.
