Fast & Easy Dinner: Portobello, Broccoli, and Red-Pepper Melts

Fast & Easy Dinner: Portobello, Broccoli, and Red-Pepper Melts

Looking for a hearty and delicious vegetarian-friendly recipe to serve at a Super Bowl party? Look no further than this open-faced sandwich. Although the ingredients are simple, the final dish is superbly balanced in flavor. It's a highly versatile recipe, so cater it to suit your needs. If you dislike broccoli, substitute a leafy green like spinach or arugula; if red peppers aren't your thing, use sundried tomatoes instead. Apply the same open-minded theory to the cheese topping: The recipe recommends gouda, but goat cheese, white cheddar, or gruyere would be melty and scrumptious. Learn how to make this dish:

Ingredients

  1. 1 small head broccoli, cut into small florets (stalk discarded)
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
