Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, the brown sugar, the soy sauce, the smoked paprika, the garlic powder, and the pepper.
  2. Place all of the prepared vegetables in a 15x10 glass baking dish. Pour the olive oil mixture over the vegetables and toss until all ingredients are covered. Set aside for about 20 minutes.
  3. Crumble ¾ of the feta cheese (reserve ¼ for later) into the bowl of a stand mixer and blend on medium for a couple of minutes. Add the whipped cream cheese and whisk on high for 2 to 3 minutes, until the mixture starts to become creamy.
  4. Add the chopped avocados and continue to whisk for several minutes—you want a consistency that's as creamy as possible.
  5. Apply olive oil to both sides of the slices of French bread.
  6. Place the vegetables on the grill or in a grill pan, on medium-high heat. (The eggplant and the thicker vegetables will require a longer grill time than the thinner-cut veggies, but you can figure on approximately 3 minutes per side for the veggies.)
  7. Grill the bread last so that it's warm when you serve it.
  8. Arrange all the grilled vegetables and bread slices on a large baking sheet.
  9. Additionally, you can sprinkle the fresh herbs on top of the veggies; you can add a little salt and pepper at this time, too.
  10. Serve with the bowl of avocado whipped feta.
  11. To assemble: take one piece of grilled bread, place a spoonful of the avocado whipped feta, and add your choice of grilled vegetables. Top with a sprinkling of the reserved feta crumbles and a few fresh herbs.
