The Sloppy Lola

The Sloppy Lola. Like the song says, she walks like a woman and talks like a man. Its fresh, hearty, satisfying, suave. It takes advantage of what is in season and makes a meal out of it. Like it’s cousin the Sloppy Joe, it overflows with good stuff.

The tomato mixture can be made up to 24 hours ahead of time and refrigerated, it serves as a simple salsa.

  • 1 cup shopped tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup (roughly) chopped red onion
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • juice of 1 lime

  • Half a yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Dash of paprika
  • 1 yellow zucchini
  • 1 green zucchini chopped to small bits
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 sandwich rolls
  • Grated cheese like cheddar, swiss, fontina or havarti; enough for both sides of the bun
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil for cooking
  • salt & pepper to taste

Make ahead-put the tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and lime juice in a bowl. Season with salt & pepper and mix. Put aside for later.

Heat the oil in a medium sized skillet over medium low heat. Add the onion and sautee for 3 minutes, just until the onion gets soft.  Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring until they soften and get juicy. Add the oregano, paprika, salt & pepper and zucchini. Cook for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. When the vegetables are soft but not soggy, remove from heat.

Take the grated cheese and put it on the open sandwich rolls then place under the broiler or in a toaster oven until the cheese melts. Add the vegetable mixture on to the bread, top with a few spoonfuls of tomato mix. Close sandwich and enjoy. Try not to get too sloppy.
