HysterSisters Herbs and Veggies Sandwich

I have to add this to the recipe file, because it was inspired by a Hyster Sister (Moonmab) who saw my name (Herbsandveggies) and told me about a sandwich her Mom used to make. I have developed my own take on what she described (which you can see here). This takes a little time to make, but it's easy to do other things while you are working on it. And it is really delicious--definitely worth the trouble!

1 whole garlic (usually includes about 10-12 cloves)
Olive oil (about 2 tbs)
1 whole red (sweet) pepper
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar or Italian dressing
About 1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, grated
Several leaves of fresh basil
1/2 tomato, sliced very thin
1 whole piece pita pocket bread, cut in half

(Makes 1 sandwich; or enough for 2 snack size servings)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (a small toaster oven works fine for this)

1. First you need to roast the garlic. Trim the narrow ends off the garlic, and discard the dry outer leaves (but do not peel or separate cloves). Lay it on some foil with the ends up, and dribble olive oil over it so that it soaks into the garlic. Wrap it up in foil. This will need to roast for about an hour at 350 degrees F. to reach the buttery consistency that you want.

2. Meanwhile, clean and trim the sweet pepper into strips. Mix it with the balsamic vinegar or Italian dressing in a zipper bag or dish for about 20 minutes, or until after the garlic has been roasting about 30 minutes.

3. After the garlic has roasted about 30 minutes, drain the sweet pepper and add it to the oven (on foil or in an oven pan). Do not cover the pepper. The pepper will stay in for the remaining 30 minutes. Turn the pepper pieces from time to time until they have started to brown.

4. While the peppers and garlic continue to roast, open the pita pocket bread carefully and put a little mozzarella cheese inside to help seal the outer edges from the inside. Chop up the fresh basil leaves and set aside.

5. Remove garlic and peppers from oven. Let garlic cool until you can handle it (or use oven glove). When you squeeze each section of the garlic, a buttery spread will come out the top. Spread this inside the two pieces of pita bread. Be sure to get all the garlic out--squeeze well and divide it between the two pita halves. The garlic will be quite mild once it is cooked.

6. Fill the pitas with very thinly sliced tomato, the basil leaves, and the roasted peppers. Sprinkle a little more mozzarella in to hold things together.

Sandwiches can be eaten as is, or warmed slightly in the microwave to melt the cheese. I suggest warming them just 20-30 seconds. Delicious!
