  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 small garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 medium size eggplant, (about 1 lb), sliced (1/2" thick)
  • 2 large or 3 medium size portobello mushroom caps, gills removed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, lightly grilled or toasted
  • 2 cups arugula, or spinach, stemmed & chopped if large
  • 1 large tomato, sliced


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Mash the garlic into a paste on a cutting board with the back of a spoon. Combine with mayonnaise and lemon juice in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Coat both sides of eggplant slices and mushroom caps with cooking spray; season with salt and pepper. Grill vegetables, turning once, until tender and browned on both sides: 2 to 3 minutes per side for eggplant, 3 to 4 minutes for mushrooms. When cool enough to handle, slice the mushrooms.
  4. Spread 1-1/2 teaspoons of the garlic mayonnaise on each piece of bread. Layer the eggplant, mushrooms, arugula (or spinach) and tomato slices onto 4 slices of bread and top with the remaining 4 slices of bread.
