Ingredients1 large red pepper, stemmed and seeded and cut in 4 large slabs Olive oil cooking spray 1/4 tsp. sea salt, divided 4 fresh or frozen veggie burger patties 4 (1-oz.) vegan cheese slices (optional) 8 slices sourdough bread 2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and sliced 1 cup fresh baby arugula
- Preheat grill to medium high (500 degrees F). Spray red pepper slabs with olive oil cooking spray and place on the grill grates skin-side down. Grill for about 10 minutes or until softened and the skin chars. Remove and when cool enough to handle, peel off the charred skin then sprinkle the peppers with half of the salt.
- Cook veggie burger patties per package instructions, topping with cheese slices in the last couple of minutes, just until the cheese melts.
- Spray both sides of the sourdough bread slices lightly with the cooking spray. Lightly grill or toast the sourdough bread in an oven (do not use a toaster).
- Mash half the avocado slices and season with remaining salt, spread on half of the bread slices. Top with burger patties and melted veggie cheese, then top with arugula, grilled pepper and avocado slices. Top with the remaining bread slices and serve immediately.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with a fresh fruit salad.
