Roasted Japanese eggplant sandwich with shishito peppers, goat cheese, and olive tapenade

Do yourself a favor. Make this for lunch tomorrow. A little party with smokey, spicy, and sweet is a good break from the monitor. These eggplant and shishitos came from the Union Square Greenmarket. The nightshades in this recipe are not skinned or seeded, so anyone avoiding the toxins beware. IMO spicy capsicums and larger eggplants are better skinned, but the smaller, milder ones are better whole (seeds and all). I also really love roasted garlic rubbed on toast, or roasted and just popped in your mouth. So, admittedly, when I assembled these sandwiches this morning I ate one clove and rubbed the other on the toasts.
