Strawberry what?

Strawberry Sorbet
Strawberry chunks can create a sweet, seriously creamy sorbet. Mind blown, right? The only other thing you need for this recipe is a little bit of sweetener, like agave—far fewer ingredients than you’ll find on the back of more highly processed desserts in the frozen foods section at the grocery store. Plus, since the recipe requires pre-freezing the strawberries, your post-blending wait time is shortened significantly.

Vegetarian.. for my mom….

“Muffaletta sandwiches, named for a Sicilian bread brought by immigrants to New Orleans, are usually loaded with cured meats, pickles and cheese. Our healthy vegetarian recipe has a trio of smoky grilled veggies. Chopped olives and banana peppers deliver the signature flavor of the classic.”
Ingredients

1 small eggplant, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices

1 large red bell pepper, quartered lengthwise

1 small zucchini, sliced lengthwise into 4 slices

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

4 crusty rolls, such as ciabatta rolls, split

4 slices provolone cheese

6 large pimiento-stuffed green olives, chopped

2 tablespoons chopped pickled banana peppers

1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar

Directions
1 Preheat grill to high.

2 Toss eggplant, bell pepper, zucchini, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Grill the vegetables, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, 6 to 10 minutes total. Grill rolls until toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Put a piece of cheese on the bottom halves of the rolls as they come off the grill, to melt the cheese a little.

3 Reserve 4 roll-size eggplant slices, 2 zucchini slices and 2 bell pepper pieces. Finely chop the remaining vegetables and combine in a bowl with olives, banana peppers and vinegar; divide among the cheesy rolls. Place a reserved eggplant slice on top of each. Cut the reserved zucchini slices in half crosswise and thinly slice the bell pepper; place on the eggplant. Cover with the roll tops.
