Sun Dried Tomato and Mushroom Muffuletta Sandwiches

mushroom sandwiches

I couldn’t stop eating these: meaty, colorful and a little salty, they’re packed with ingredients you can find any time of year.
Preparation Time:  20 minutes
Cooking Time:
Servings  4mushroom sandwiches
Serving Size:  1 Sandwich

Ingredients:

1 package (8 ounces) sliced button mushrooms
½ cup drained bottled hot or mild pickled vegetables (jardiniere)
¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon coarsely grated Romano cheese, divided
2 tablespoons each: chopped pimiento stuffed green olives and chopped drained sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
4 small whole-wheat pita bread loaves, such as Sahara brand
1 cup packed spinach or arugula leaves

Directions:

In a medium bowl, combine mushrooms, vegetables, ¼ cup cheese, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and parsley; mix well. Cut pitas in half. Line each pocket with spinach and fill with mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon cheese.

Tips:

For a pleasant textural contrast, toast the pitas before assembling the sandwiches. These sandwiches are perfect for picnics. Wrap each in plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 6 hours before serving. Colorful sweet potato chips (such as Terra brand) make a delightful accompaniment.

Substitutions:

Chopped pitted calamata olives or Spanish green olives may be substituted for the pimiento stuffed olives. Chopped fresh chives may be substituted for the parsley. A mixture of ¼ cup each hot and mild pickled vegetables may replace the ½ cup of one.
