  1. Heat oven to 400F (204C) degrees. Toss carrots with olive oil and spread out onto a sheet pan. Roast in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, giving a shake midway through. Season with salt and pepper fresh out of the oven. Sandwich rolls can be toasted in the oven at the same time - they'll just need ~5 minutes.
  2. Brush eggplant and mushrooms with cooking oil and salt and pepper. Heat up grill pan or skillet over high heat. Grill veggies for about 4 minutes on each side. If veggies haven't cooked through at this point, cover with foil and lower heat until they're tender.
  3. Assemble veggie sandwiches with eggplant, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Slather sandwiches with adobo honey sauce and enjoy with carrot fries. If there's extra adobo honey sauce, use it as a dip for the carrot fries too!
