Due to health issues, last month I started a new life as a vegetarian. Honestly, I was a little worried that eating was really going to suck for me. I do love chicken and am totally mourning the loss. In a panic, I started emailing all of my vegetarian and vegan friends asking for their best recipes. I received some great suggestions before it dawned on me that Golden Blossom Honey has a really great vegetarian section I should have been browsing. I test so many of their recipes on a weekly basis, it was a "duh" moment, for sure.
Dinners started out a bit challenging, but thankfully I am finding some great meals that the whole family can enjoy without too many alterations to the recipes (don't worry, I'll still be sharing some of their favorite meat dishes since they aren't jumping on a vegetarian diet with me.) One that I didn't have to change was this Grilled Vegetable Open-Faced Sandwich.
It has a real Italian flare with the spices and pesto. Great for lunch or dinner. Jason has never liked eggplant, but he ate his entire sandwich and didn't even realize there was a slice on it. I do love those recipes where I can sneak a few extra veggies into my family's diet and they don't even realize it!
