Roasted Eggplant, Tomato, Mozzarella & Pesto Open Faced Sandwiches

My parents recently moved to a condo in downtown Toronto almost right beside the St Lawrence Market.

It is a beautiful space with a ton of fresh produce, artisanal cheeses, breads and more! In other words- endless food inspiration.

I had been browsing for some salad recipes and came across this Eggplant, Tomato, and Mozzarella Salad by Martha Stewart. So I headed to the Market to get the freshest ingredients to make it. While I was there I came across some freshly baked buns and decided to turn the salad into a sandwich.

I baked the Eggplant following Martha’s directions

While the Eggplant is cooking, cut the bun in half, and spread pesto on both halves.

Arrange eggplant, tomato slices, and mozzarella on the bun and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic.

I had lots of leftovers the next day to make a big salad- delicious!
