Why we love it:

Have we mentioned we love a sandwich? This one layers in sweet potatoes and is BBQ spiced for a rich and satisfying winter feel.

Ingredients

  • 4 Portobello Mushrooms
  • 12 Red Onion
  • 2 Sweet Potatos
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 112 teaspoons Kosher Salt (divided)
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 12 teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • 12 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 8 ounces Firm Mozzarella (or soft)
  • 4 Burger Buns
  • 2 cups Baby Spinach

Cooking Instructions

  • 1. PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 400 DEGREES
  • 2. SLICE

    Clean the portobello, dust off any clinging dirt and remove the stem (which you can save for stock!). Slice the cap in ½ to make it thinner - to do this, slice higher than what looks like the halfway point to take into account the cup-shaped lid.

    Slice the red onion into thin rings.

    Wash the sweet potato and peel, if desired. Slice into very thin rings - about ¼ - ⅛” inch thick so they cook quickly.

    Slice the red bell pepper into quarters.

    Toss all veggies with the olive oil and ½ teaspoon salt on a baking sheet.

  • 3. SPICE BLEND

    Combine the spices - 1 Tablespoon chili powder, 1 Tablespoon paprika, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, ½ teaspoon dry mustard, ½ dried thyme. Rub on veggies. Roast for about 10 minutes, flipping or stirring about halfway through.

  • 4. CHEESE

    Slice the mozzarella. Stack onto both sides of the buns and add them to the oven to melt.

  • 5. STACK

    When the veggies are done, build stacks that are about the size of the bun. Add the raw spinach to the cheese, add a veggie stack, close the lid.

  • 6. SERVING

    Serve as is, or with a bit or warmed BBQ sauce to dip. Add chips or crudité to the plate.

How to Tweak This Recipe for Kids:

  • Deconstruct as needed!

For Choosy Eaters

  • Consider making a grilled cheese on a bun, maybe add hummus or avocado. Try spinach perhaps or a bell pepper. You can roast some extra yams as sweet potato fries, or try thin slices of the other vegetables too
