Arugula Pita Sandwich from Kym
Plantains, semi-green plantains peeled and cut into 2″ chunks
Plantains have a great texture for this sandwich. If you have never worked with them, here is a blog that discusses peeling and cutting them. This recipe calls for them to be browned on all sides. Saute the mushroom slices in coconut oil to add flavor. You could substitute olive oil. Slice an avocado. Wash and dry the arugula. Add all ingredients to a pita and enjoy.
Swiss Chard with Beans and Goat Cheese from Kym
- olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pinch red pepper flakes
- 1 or two bunches Swiss chard – rinsed and cut into 1/2 inch slices
- 1 (15.5 ounce) can beans, rinsed and drained (I like kidney or pinto)
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- goat cheese (crumbles from Trader Joe’s works well)
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chard, cover and cook for 4 minutes. Uncover and mix in the beans, tomato, lime juice, salt and pepper. Cover and continue cooking until the chard is wilted, about 4 more minutes.
Add goat cheese; cover until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
*You can really do all the ingredients to taste. Yummy!
