I’m glad the hot weather has arrived…and I mean hot.
Lunchtime again, what’s on the menu today? Although, I cook a hot lunch for my working man,usually pasta or rice with varying homemade sauces. I’m still use to having my salads or sandwiches.
Today I thought I’d try this recipe. And I’m glad I did. It’s light, different and with added vitamins in disguise.
Recipe: Open Sandwich – Fantasy
Ingredients: for 4 servings
There was only me…so I more than halved the quantities…
1 tablespoon walnuts
2 tablespoon parsley
100 grams cream cheese or ricotta
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
salt and pepper freshly grounded
1 whole meal bread roll or 4 slices of bread
1 granny smith apple
I used cream cheese, because that’s what I had available, but I think this would work well with any soft cheese.Cut the walnuts and parsley finely,add the cream cheese and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
With a peeler, slice long strips of carrot,(6)and grate finely the rest of the carrot.I used half an apple, wash,peel and grate finely. Add grated carrot and apple to the cream cheese mixture. Add another tablespoon of lemon juice,and mix well.
Slice the bread roll into medium slices, place the mixture on top, garnish with the carrot strips.
Lunch my friends is ready. Healthy, light, and delicious!
