Eggplant Sandwich Gluten Free

The Green Goddess Sandwich in our book Wonderfully Well is one of my favorites of all time.  The dressing is savory with a punch of flavor, two inches of spinach give you the texture of meat and the thin layers of veggie blend their flavors well.  Stack it all on a sprouted grain bread….ERRRCHH….can’t do that any more; my body does not tolerate gluten At All!

I really miss having sandwiches,  I don’t like most gluten free breads and even if one does hit the spot, if I eat a gluten free bread product more than once or twice they begin to (excuse my honesty here) literally gag me.  Oh how I miss sandwiches!

photo-4Well, my good friend, business coach and client, Missy Day and I were talking about how to make the green goddess sandwich gluten free and somehow we landed on using Eggplant for the “bread”. Tonight I tired it for myself and my sister-in-law, Michelle and we both agree…it is the bomb! Michelle thought it was a bit messy and would be better so we tried them wrapped in a romaine lettuce leaf…stacked up like I describe but tucked neatly in the lettuce leaf was even better!

This is not a Cleanse-legal sandwich because the dressing uses yogurt and mayo, however, I am going to try to make the dressing vegan…I’ll let you know how it works out.
