The other day I was mindlessly scrolling through food websites (as a dedicated food lover does) and suddenly my focus zoomed in on this miraculous piece of food creation that immediately made my eyes light up and my mouth water.
I could just taste the delightful flavours, the awesome mouth feel, the crunch, the soft, the warm, the gooey.
How about a picture of said ----
Of course I knew I was going to re-create this. And soon.
I also knew there would be a few little tweaks to make it more Steph-tummy friendly and yet just as delicious...
And here it is:
I started off making up a batch of my delicious basil pesto (with all the good stuff; pine nuts, nutritional yeast, basil, extra virgin olive oil, a splash of water, some spinach and lemon juice)
and dolloping some onto a piece of dark, wholemeal, grainy bread.
Topping off the pesto with some 'cheeeeese':
Just check out that 'cheese' action:
What's your favourite combo with cheese in a grilled cheese sandwich? Because I don't generally eat cheese all that often any more I generally like my grilled sandwiches with a veggie patty and tomato. As a kid my favourite grilled cheese was made with baked beans- so good!
Have you ever had a pesto and grilled cheese sandwich? I think it's one of my new favourites!
Favourite use for pesto? Pizza, no debate. Oooh, except for pasta- pesto is sooo good with pasta. Okay I'll stop ;).
I hope you all have a fabulous day, take some time to appreciate all the awesome things in your life, and as always, eat something delicious!! Bye friends! :D
