Gourmet Grilled Cheese

1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, sliced thinly
3 Tbsp. Earth Balance
4 ciabatta rolls, cut in half
Vegan mozzarella (try Sheese brand)
4 roasted red peppers

•In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the onions until translucent. Remove from the heat.
•Heat a grill pan or large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Spread the Earth Balance on the outside of the rolls. Layer the “cheese,” onions, and peppers. Top with more “cheese” and the other half of the roll.
•Cook, covered, until golden and the “cheese” is melted.

*Note: Add fresh basil leaves or cracked black pepper to the sandwich for a Mediterranean flair. Focaccia is a tasty alternative to ciabatta.
