Roasted Red Pepper, Baby Arugula, & Goat Cheese Sandwiches with Optional Bacon

Roasted Red Pepper, Baby Arugula, & Goat Cheese Sandwiches with Optional Bacon

Posted on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 in One Dish Two Ways

I’m not sure how, but I somehow ended up with a significant other that hates tomatoes. Tomatoes! The glorious fruitvegetable! But he loathes them. Well, at least, he loathes fresh tomatoes. Especially slices, and especially on hamburgers and sandwiches.

So BLTs aren’t really something we do around here. For one, I don’t eat the bacon, so mine is just an LT – lettuce and tomato. And his wouldn’t have tomato, so his is just a BL. So if I didn’t break out a tomato for just my sandwich, we’re looking at a … lettuce sandwich? An L? Yeah, probably not … unless that’s some fabulous thing I’m totally missing out on, and if so, please share now!

I love, love, love a good grocery store. Overflowing rainbow displays of fresh produce are the first to greet you, and then there are the wonderful bulk bins with infinite possibilities and always a mysterious legume or grain. Organic is the rule, not the exception. Going grocery shopping feels like an event, an escape – never a chore.

Mmm … soup. Loved, cherished, maybe even a little admired, and made very, very often around here once autumn comes around. It’s something that lends itself well to our mixed-diet kitchen: so many amazing soups start out already vegetarian, and so many more just need a little stock swap – a hearty, rich vegetable stock in place of chicken or beef broth. And then perhaps a little meat on top or simmered with half the batch for a few minutes at the end.

I love simple recipes, and this sandwich is a perfect example of just that. With only four ingredients – and that’s if you count the olive oil and coarse salt – it couldn’t be any more straightforward. The key is delicious, quality ingredients, prepared well. Go ahead and buy the perfect loaf of crusty bread at the store or your local bakery, but the peppers, you should definitely roast yourself.

This simple, easy sandwich is made up of two thick slices of artisan bread stuffed with a layer or two of olive-oil soaked, smoky-sweet roasted red peppers, sprinkled with a little kosher salt or sea salt.

It’s cliche, I know: but once I learned how to roast my own red peppers, I’ve never gone back to store-bought. And I can pretty confidently say I never will. The taste of red peppers roasted in your own oven is beyond compare. Fresh, smoky, and rich, roasted red peppers are so easy to make using your broiler setting at home.
