Here's the recipe to what is now going to be your favorite sandwich! This Roasted Vegetable Sandwich w/ Tofu Ricotta is sure to impress. Delicious crusty sourdough bread slathered with homemade tofu ricotta and filled with roasted eggplant, red pepper, and zucchini finished off with a lemony arugula salad. Flavorful, fresh, and so satisfying. You're going to love this!
This Roasted Vegetable Sandwich w/ Tofu Ricotta has been my favorite meal I've had while being on the low FODMAP elimination diet. I'm almost done with the elimination phase and will be reintroducing categories here shortly but low FODMAP or not I'll be making this sandwich very often. It's so good! My boyfriend who is not on the diet LOVES this recipe. It's for everyone to enjoy!
Let’s break it down:
This sandwich comes together very easy. Simply roast eggplant and red bell peppers tossed in garlic infused olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then, cook up some sliced zucchini in a pan and toast slices of sourdough bread. Make sure the bread is 100% sourdough to ensure it is low FODMAP. If you aren't on the elimination diet and can tolerate wheat, use whatever bread you'd like but a crusty loaf works best in this recipe. If you made my Tomato Basil Pasta, use the leftover tofu ricotta for this sandwich or head over to that recipe and make it fresh. It comes together quickly. Spread a hearty amount of tofu ricotta on the sourdough bread along with the eggplant, zucchini, and red peppers. Finish it off with a fresh arugula salad and chopped basil. Enjoy!

How To Make The Best Roasted Vegetable Sandwich
Roast the vegetables until they are soft and golden brown and caramelized because this will yield a better overall flavor to the sandwich.
Don't be tempted to skip the arugula salad. It's so delicious and complementary to the flavors of the vegetables and ricotta.

Things to Note:
Low FODMAP Diet is very particular about portion sizes. Below are portion sizes recommended from the Monash App. I included measurements in ounces and roughly in cups- ounces are more accurate when cooking on the elimination diet so if you have a kitchen scale I highly recommend using it for this. If you are not on the elimination diet and can tolerate these vegetables in higher amounts, don't worry too much about this.
