Veggie Grinders

What I like about this recipe is that it's versatile. AND it's MY recipe, and it just so happens to be delicious. The whole thing came about after a highly non-nutritious beach weekend and a severe craving for all things green and leafy. Ron's Schoolhouse offers a veggie grinder as a surprising, yet welcome alternative to the standard restaurant nod to "alternative diets," the veggie burger, which actually i don't think Ron's even offers... or maybe it has cheese in it possibly... which is ridiculous to put cheese IN a veggie burger when it can absolutely be left out of the burger and placed ON TOP of the burger if you need cheese... anyway, FOOD. So Ron's offers this sub with what I think is roasted veggies- green beans, broccoli, carrots, onions, etc.- and a light coating of teriyaki type sauce. And it's really good with a side of fries and a coke. I recreated it pretty well, but chose to save time and basically stir fry the veggies on the stove top, then cut up some boca chickn patties and toss it all with a little teriyaki. The result was awesome, and to top it all off the whole thing took just over half an hour.
