    List of Ingredients

    California Cafe's Eggplant Sandwich

    Eggplant Sandwich (California Cafe)
    Serves 6
    Submitted by Denver Rocky Mountain News

    Ricotta Spread:
    1 cup ricotta
    3 scallions or green onions
    6 sundried tomatoes (rehydrate and chop up)
    6-8 fresh basil leaves
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 red onion
    Balsamic vinegar, to cover onions

    Balsamic Vinaigrette:
    1/2 shallot
    1 clove garlic
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    3/4 cup olive oil
    Focaccia (can be bought sliced at specialty grocery stores)


    Cut the red onion into 1/2-inch pieces and simmer in balsamic vinegar for 45 minutes. The onions will be soft and sweet and will absorb a lot of the vinegar. Set aside.

    Brush sliced eggplant with balsamic vinaigrette, salt and pepper and grill or broil until golden brown (about 7 minutes per side; brush again when you turn eggplant). Slice beefsteak tomato and grill or broil.

    Toast focaccia, apply ricotta spread and build sandwich with grilled eggplant and tomato. Top with the balsamic onions. Serve open faced. Drizzle a small amount of the balsamic vinaigrette over top of sandwich.
