Grilled Goat Cheese and Veggie Sandwich

I read somewhere once that sandwiches were the most under-appreciated food of all the blogged recipes out there. Sandwiches are simple. Does someone really need to tell you how to spread the mayo on your bread, and put your favorite toppings on? Well, despite the fact that building a sandwich is about as easy as it is to talk me out of the gym in the morning, I am going to blog about a sandwich anyways!

I try not to eat a lot of bread. I would rather spend my calories for the day eating spoonfuls of Nutella straight from the jar. So if I eat a sandwich, it better be damn good. As a vegetarian, I find it especially hard to find a sandwich worthy of replacing chocolate. But this one just might have a chance, and with tangy goat cheese and sweet red peppers, even a meat-lover might be swayed.....

Grilled Goat Cheese and Veggie Sandwich

2 slices of your favorite bread - it better be %100 whole wheat :)
Herbed goat cheese - brought to room temperature
6 stalks asparagus 
1/2 red pepper cut into strips
Thinly sliced onion
Baby spinach

Fill a pot half full with water and bring to a boil. Boil asparagus and red pepper strips 3-4 minutes, until just tender. Remove and run under cold water. Spread goat cheese on both pieces of bread. Top one slice with handful of baby spinach, asparagus, red pepper, onion, and second piece of bread. Butter both sides and toss on a medium-high pan for 3-4 minutes per side, or until goat cheese and melted and bread in golden brown. Enjoy your meatless-monday lunch and skip the Nutella for dessert. Or don't....and worry about it tomorrow :)
