Lamb, Roasted Tomato, and Artichoke Sandwiches with Olive Spread

Roasting the tomatoes makes them sweet and meaty; it also draws out much of the liquid so that you can assemble the sandwiches the night before without worrying about the focaccia becoming soggy.

Cooking Light MAY 2005

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Ingredients

  • 4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise (about 1/2 pound)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped ripe olives
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 (2-ounce) pieces focaccia (Italian flatbread), cut in half horizontally
  • 1 1/4 cups sliced Simple Roasted Leg of Lamb (about 6 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and thinly sliced

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Arrange the tomato halves, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon thyme and black pepper. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until very tender. Cool slightly.

Combine remaining 1/2 teaspoon thyme, low-fat mayonnaise, olives, rind, and juice.

Spread cut sides of bread evenly with mayonnaise mixture. Divide tomato halves, Simple Roasted Leg of Lamb, onion, and artichokes evenly among 4 bread pieces. Top with remaining bread pieces. Wrap the sandwiches in foil or parchment paper; chill.
