A short while ago, I went hiking in Ras Al Khaimah with a few friends and I was charged with snack duty.
They know me well enough to know “snacks” really equals an indulgent meal with a touch of healthy added in!
I was trying to think of the perfect on-the-go lunch that would keep us fuelled throughout the hike, easy to carry and eat, but more importantly, something that made that half-way point all the more enjoyable. Despite being a relatively average 4-hour hike, I’ll always take any excuse for good grub!
Loads of you replied to my stories whilst I was making the sandwiches on Instagram asking for the recipe, so voila :)
I think the key to any really good sandwich is a) copious amounts of filling and b) your sauces. It’s got to be bursting with squishiness and overflowing with flavour!
Mission accomplished here, that’s for sure.
We have two types of pesto – not necessary of course – but recommended. Chilli pesto on the bottom and basil pesto on the top. The roasted vegetable filling consists of mixed peppers, aubergine and sun-dried tomatoes and it’s topped off with fresh peppery rocket and creamy mozzarella cheese.
It’s then all squished down with a drizzle of balsamic glaze to make, what is in my opinion, the world’s greatest sandwich! No bias here…
Comment below and let me know what you think of this recipe, or if you have any questions :)
