Combine marinade ingredients. Marinate eggplant and squash at least one hour. Drain, batter and deep-fry 3 minutes at 350 degrees, or until lightly golden.
Grill bread to toast. Place tempura vegetables on one side of bread. Spread tomato sauce over vegetables, sprinkle with cheese and top with other slice of bread. Serve with small salad of sliced amfisi olives, pickled okra, roma tomato and spinach.
