After this weekend of eating out, we felt a little blah. We decided (well I decided) that we would have a veggie week, where we eat lots of fresh summer veggies and fruit and no refined flours/sugars. Tuesday we made omelets with mushrooms, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, onion, and lots of spinach. It was delicious.
Yesterday I made these sandwiches for lunch. The recipe is from the current Everyday Food magazine. Martha Stewart just figured out that they shouldn't post the current issue's content on the internet, so I'll give you the recipe, it's really simple. I used cream cheese instead of the goat cheese, but that was only because I already had it, I would use the goat cheese for more flavor. Today I am going to try it with fresh mozzarella and basil pesto.
Last night we had a feast of roasted veggies: new potatoes, sweet potatoes, asparagus, zucchini, carrots, onion with a lemon and garlic. The lemon totally makes the whole thing amazing. Then we had a fresh peach and I lightly drizzled some real maple syrup on mine (peaches weren't totally ripe yet). Do you have any favorite fresh veggie meals?
multi-grain bread, toasted
goat cheese (or similar substitute)
red onion thinly sliced
cucumber thinly sliced
grated radish (I didn't use this)
Put the red onion in a bowl with a few dashes of red wine vinegar (I threw the cukes in too) and let sit for 10 minutes. Spread cheese on bread and layer with everything else.
