The Hubs made dinner without me...we were going to have grilled cheese sandwiches and soup when I got home from class tonight (EARLY, I might add, since we had a test). But NO, he had to go and eat a crummy little pizza by himself and then fall asleep.
But I still wanted grilled cheese (yay Daiya!), and had an idea to make it better...as if grilled cheese sandwiches could be made any better, right? What was I thinking??
Oh, my fellow Vegan MoFo'ers...I was thinking along the right lines with this one.
Roasted Garlic Grilled Cheese Sandys
1 bulb of garlic
1 tbsp olive oil (or grapeseed, whateva)
4 slices artisan bread
loads of Daiya, mozz AND cheddar types (this one's really at your discretion)
sprinkle of pepper, salt, oregano
Earth Balance for the bread
Preheat oven to 375 deg. Cut the top off your garlic bulb and soak in some oil. Load it up in a pan, top with foil, and pop in the oven for about half an hour until it's light brown and able to be poked with a fork. Mine took about 40 minutes. Let the garlic cool before handling!
Spread slightly-melted Earth Balance on your bread and throw it on a griddle (we have an awesome electric one from The Hubs' Mutti!). Brown the bread, flip it over, and spread on roasted garlic. Top with Daiya (alternatively, you can mix Vegenaise with some roasted garlic and then spread on the bread). Put slices together and cook until "cheese" is melted. I did one of both options:
Is it bad that I stood there, eating the small amount of leftover roasted garlic Vegenaise with tortilla chips while the sandys cooked? Probably. Do I care? Not in the slightest.
That is a cool glass of Silk Pumpkin Spice there...mmmmmm...spice...
This is super-awesome-spectacular if you are a garlic fan, or if you want to avoid kissing your husband who couldn't wait for you to eat dinner and fell asleep. Delightful!
