Green Goddess Grilled Cheeze 036

 

Continuing Grilled Cheese Week in style, today I offer you a gift from the food gods! Green Goddess Grilled Cheese. Its legit. I have zero fear of over selling this sandwich to you as it is fantastically delicious in every way. As you bite and chew every last morsel I guarantee you will enter a blissful state of mind where the lines between deminsions blur and you find yourself in a field of avocado dreams. Wait, what? Avocado dreams? sign me up. Basically what I am trying to say is this sandwich is awesome and I highly reccommend you stop whatever you are doing and go make it.

To me, the color green is the color of life and if health had a color it would most likely be green, too so combining loads of green things in a grilled cheese seemed like a no brainer!

    Pesto, recipe follows
  • 1/2
    ripe avocado
  • handful
    spinach
  • vegan butter, like earth balance
  • FOR THE PESTO
  • 1
    clove of garlic
  • 1/2
    small shallot
  • 1/2-1
    lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 Cup
    parsley, roughly chopped, loosely packed
  • 1/2 Cup
    chopped kale
  • 1/2 Cup
    basil, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons
    tarragon, roughly chopped, loosely packed
  • 1/2 Cup
    cilantro, loosely packed
  • 1/4 Cup
    pine nuts
  • 1/2 Cup
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • pink salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. For the Pesto:
    add all ingredients, except the olive oil to a food processor and pulse until everything is chopped, then slowly add in the olive oil until well combined.

    Save pesto in an air tight container and use on salads, toast or pasta in the next couple of days.

  2. add butter to a pan, over medium low heat and add in the bread. Lightly toast on one side of the bread, remove from heat and on the toasted sides layer your ingredients.

    On both slides spread 1 tbsp pesto, then cheese.

    Add more butter to the pan and add the slices of bread over medium low heat. Cover with a lid and let the cheese start to melt, about 1-2 minutes. Then layer the avocado and spinach on one side and then top with the other piece of bread and press down with a spatula, after 30 seconds to a minute, flip.

    Remove from heat and enjoy!!
