This vegetarian sandwich from New York's Brooklyn Fare is terrific warm, but for a shortcut, use jarred olive tapenade instead of homemade and serve the sandwich cold.

  1. 1 small garlic clove, minced
  2. 1 small shallot, minced
  3. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  4. 1/4 cup soft fresh goat cheese
  5. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  6. 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  7. Dash of hot sauce
  8. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped mint
  11. Extra-virgin olive oil
  12. 1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
  13. 1 long soft baguette, split
  14. 1 cup roasted red peppers (8 ounces), cut into strips
  15. 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, cut into strips
  16. Shredded iceberg lettuce
  1. In a skillet, cook the garlic and shallot in the vegetable oil over low heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a mini food processor; add the goat cheese, cream, thyme and hot sauce and puree. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl.
  2. Rinse out the food processor. Add the olives, mint, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a pinch of pepper; process to a paste.
  3. Preheat a grill pan. Brush the zucchini with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat, turning, until tender.
  4. Keep the grill pan hot. Spread the goat cheese on the bottom half of the baguette and top with the zucchini, red peppers and sun-dried tomatoes. Spread the olive paste on the top half. Quarter the sandwich and grill, pressing with a skillet and turning once, until hot; fill with lettuce and serve.
Make Ahead The sandwiches can be made through Step 3 and refrigerated overnight.
