Omg! Thank you so much! I’ve been following you for awhile now & your blog is what inspired me to even make this blog. You’re so great! Ah! Thanks...
i must admit, it was a little labor-intensive for just one sandwich, but it would be fantastic for a family dinner or home-cooked lunch with friends
since it takes about 25-30 minutes to roast the tomatoes and red peppers, i got those in the oven before doing anything else
then grilled/sauteed some sliced red onions with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
once the tomatoes were done in the oven, i put them in the food processor with two tablespoons of garlic and herb Boursin cheese
i strongly recommend making this in big batches because 1) it’s delicious and 2) it’s hard to make small batches of things in the food processor because sometimes the blades won’t reach
once the spread was whipped up, i assembled the sandwich and put it on our makeshift panini maker
ahh back in my beautiful kitchen that happens to be in my parents’ house that they happened to design and pay for themselves…
i walked to trader joe’s.. because i’m back in california.. AND I CAN
got some fresh, quality ingredients, walked home, put on my apron, and began laboring over this gourmet pizza. took about 20 minutes
1) toasted some walnuts in the oven for about 3 minutes. (when they start smelling yummy take them out!)
2) sliced some cherry tomatoes - all still prep work, of course
3) let the whole wheat pizza crust (provided by my friend Trader Joe) rest for 20 minutes … maybe that should be #1 …
doesn’t that look so appetizing…
4) grilled chopped red onions.
Thank you God for making onions smell so good when they’re being grilled!
5) let your mommy roll out the pizza dough for you when it’s being stubborn
she’s italian. it’s in her blood to know how to do this.
she also tried tossing the pizza dough… and i was too in awe to remember to grab my camera. next time ;)
6) ASSEMBLE! — just the tomatoes, walnuts, onions, and goat cheese
7) bake about 7-8 minutes, then top with arugula and 1 tbsp drizzle of olive oil
8) GET ON MY PLATE so i can SCARF YOU DOWN FASTER than you can say “ARUGULA”
1) saute some chopped zucchini and red onion with about 1/2 a teaspoon of olive oil
2) put the veggies in a bowl and pour 2 egg whites into the heated pan and let them spread out to cover the surface of the pan, let cook for about a minute to two minutes
3) sprinkle the eggs with a little bit of mozzarella cheese
4) add the cooked veggies to one half of the egg and fold over the other half
5) let cook a little longer so the cheese melts
i always eat my eggs with a slice of toasted Ezekiel bread
