I have been eating some really yummy meals that I am so excited about- I just have to share!
I recently purchased 2 products that I LOVE!
EARTH GRAINS 100% Natural Thins Buns
OROWEAT Sandwich Thins
They are basically the same product...Thins buns that seem to have the taste of pita bread. I found them for a great deal at my local COSTCO. I thought I would give them a try. They are so much fun!
Yesterday I made quick VEGGIE PANINI's...and I couldn't get enough.
Fresh Lemon Juice
Red pepper (diced)
Red Onion (sliced very thin)
Stone Ground Mustard
Thins Buns/Sandwich Thins
Mash the avocado with a fork until creamy. Add fresh lemon juice and salt to taste.
Spread Avocado on half of sandwich thin. Sprinkle red pepper and onion on avocado spread.
Place spinach on top. Spread mustard on top of sandwich thin and place on top of sandwich.
I heated my sandwich on my George Forman Grill- just till is was warm.
You can add any other vegetable that you want: Cucumber, Tomato, Sprouts, etc.
Next time I think I will use my homemade hummus instead of mustard (see hummus recipe here).
I ate my panini with left over Cream of Brocolli soup (recipe here) and some sliced cucumber. (I like the brocolli soup even better the next day). WHAT A YUMMY LUNCH!
I have been using these sandwich thins for my daughter's lunch as well! It's a fun way to make a quick veggie sandwich. (also pictured in her lunch is our Anytime bean dip- see recipe here).
It's always a good thing to mix things up for her and do something slightly different- and she has been eating it...so she must like them too!
