Ingredients

For the eggplant:
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped, fresh basil
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 small eggplants

For the sandwiches:
1/2 cup cream cheese, low-fat whipped, or goat cheese
4 pieces of focaccia or other good quality bread, sliced in half, lengthwise
2/3 cup spinach, washed and dried
4 slices of tomato


Preheat the grill.


Mix the olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of the basil together. Slice the eggplants lengthwise into 1/2" slices. Brush the slices on both sides with the olive oil mixture.


Grill the eggplant slices until they become soft in the center, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.


For the sandwiches:


Mix the cheese, the remaining teaspoon of basil, salt and pepper together. Set aside.


Spread 4 halves of bread with the cheese mixture, then top with the spinach or arugula, a slice of tomato and a few slices of eggplant. Place the other half of the bread on top
