Green Toasty

My Gran gave us a waffle iron a while back, and when I found out that it doubled up as a sandwich toaster too, I had this sudden envy for a toasty. In the last few weeks, I started working on various projects and it’s been rather busy. In these kinds of times I like falling back on easy and super quick to prepare meals, but of course I still want them to be delicious. The idea of the toasted sandwich happened to be exactly what I wanted: it literally takes minutes to prepare and you’re on for a yummy lunch, that will make a change from the cold good old sandwich.

Below I’m giving you several options, just in case you don’t happen to have a sandwich toaster, so that you can still enjoy it too!

Green Toasty – makes 4
•8 slices of wholemeal or granary bread
•4tbsp pesto (I used this recipe)
•1 avocado, stoned, peeled and sliced
•2 handfuls baby spinach
•4 slices ewe cheese

1.Spread the pesto onto a slice of bread. Add the avocado slices, baby spinach and finally ewe cheese. Close the sandwich with another slice of bread. Repeat with the remaining of the ingredients.
2.Either place in a sandwich toaster if you have one, for about 3-4min or until toasted, or toast in a griddle pan for a couple of minutes on each side. Another alternative would consist in placing the sandwiches in the oven under the grill for a few minutes on each side until done. The toasties are done when the bread is golden and the cheese melted.

Croque Vert – pour 4 croques
•8 tranches de pain complet ou aux céréales
•4cs de pesto (j’ai utilisé cette recette)
•1 avocat, pelé, dénoyauté et tranché
•2 poignées de pousses d’épinards
•4 tranches de fromage de brebis

1.Etaler le pesto sur une tranche de pain. Ajouter, en couches, les tranches d’avocat, des pousses d’épinard et une tranche de fromage de brebis. Fermer le sandwich avec une autre tranche de pain. Répéter avec le reste des ingrédients.
2.Passer les sandwichs dans un appareil à croque-monsieur pendant 3-4min, si vous en avez un, ou dans un gril en fonte pendant quelques minutes de chaque côté. Une autre alternative serait de les passer sous le grill du four pendant quelques minutes de chaque côté. Les croques sont prêts lorsqu’ils sont dorés et que le fromage est fondu.
