In diner lingo, anything spinach is called “Popeye,” hence the name for this variation on the classic club sandwich. Although we often
see club sandwiches with a third slice of bread, they were originally made with two slices. Some people believe the name came from the club cars, which date back to the late 1800s. This grilled vegetable sandwich recipe is from American Vegan Kitchen: Delicious Comfort Food from Blue Plate Specials to Homestyle Favorites

In a 9 x 13-inch pan, combine the wine, soy sauce, dried herbs, garlic, ketchup, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the mushrooms and zucchini slices and marinate for 15 minutes.
Heat the grill to medium high. Cut the bread in half horizontally, removing some of the insides to create more room for the filling. Brush the cut sides with 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil. Transfer to the grill, cut-side down. Grill until just turning golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Grill the mushrooms, zucchini, bell peppers, and onion, brushing with remaining olive oil as needed, so the vegetables do not dry out. The time will vary, but should take about 5 minutes per side. Remove the vegetables as they are done cooking.
To prepare the sandwiches, spread the cut sides of the bread with pesto. Layer the vegetables evenly over the sandwich starting with the mushrooms, then the zucchini, bell peppers, and onion. Layer with the fresh spinach, then add the top of the loaf. To serve, press down on the sandwich while cutting, using a serrated knife. Cut into four sections and serve immediately.
