Rainbow Veggie Toastie with Walnut Aioli Recipe: Veggie Magazine


For the sandwich

1 medium courgette, sliced into 1cm rounds
1 small aubergine, sliced into 1cm rounds
1 orange pepper, sliced into strips
2 small tomatoes, sliced in half
1 onion, sliced
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
8 slices sourdough bread
1 clove garlic
Handful basil leaves, shredded (optional)

For the aioli

125g California walnuts
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp mayonnaise
Juice of 1 lemon


  • Dry fry the walnuts at a medium to high heat for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown and toasted, stirring frequently to ensure the walnuts don’t catch.
  • Place all the ingredients for the aioli into a food processor and blitz into a chunky paste. Toss the courgette, aubergine, pepper, tomatoes, onion, half the olive oil, and salt and pepper in a large bowl to coat, then grill the veggies to your preference.
  • Brush the bread with the remaining oil and lightly grill on both sides, then rub each slice of bread gently with the peeled garlic clove.
  • Spoon one tablespoon of the lemon walnut aioli over two slices of bread, and place a quarter of the grilled vegetables between the slices. Repeat with the remaining bread and veggies. Garnish the sandwiches with the shredded basil leaves to serve, if using.
