Roasted vegetables make a tasty and nutritious filling for sandwiches. We think roasted red pepper tastes delicious, especially when served alongside extra virgin olive oil. The composition of olive oil is primarily of heart-friendly monounsaturated fat (approximately 73%). It contains less of the pro-inflammatory omega-6 fats found in most other vegetable oils.
Extra virgin olive oil is the healthiest and highest-quality olive oil available. This is because the oil is extracted without the use of high heat or chemical solvents, which can tarnish its precious glow-giving nutrients.
Looking for a good extra virgin olive oil? We love The Governor Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Enjoy 10% off with the code LIZLOVES.
Feta cheese also plays a starring role in this roasted vegetable sandwich. This tangy cheese is a good source of calcium, along with phosphorous and B vitamins. Feta also contains friendly bacteria that can help to support our gut health and immune system.
