Balsamic Glazed Carrots and Edamame Grilled Cheese
via MeatlessMonday via Christian Science Monitor

1/4 c. edamame, shelled
1/4 c. carrots. sliced into thin strips
Balsamic vinegar to taste
2 slices good quality, whole-grain, hearty bread
2 kinds of cheese, generously sliced: aged cheddar and Alpine laced swiss work
A little butter
Salt & pepper to taste.

Sauté edamame and carrots in a pan with a few splashes of balsamic vinegar for 5 min,, stirring to make sure veggies are coated with vinegar. (How much is used depends on your personal taste).  Set aside to cool.

In the same pan, melt a pat of butter to lightly grease. Also butter both sides of bread slices. Arrange cheese slices, carrots and edamame, and salt and pepper to taste. Grill both sides of bread until golden and crispy, and cheese is melted, about 5 min. each side. Makes 1 amazing sandwich.
