Final day of the blogging marathon and my theme is “Picnic Food”. For the last day I have been paired with Padma Rekha of PlaintainLeaf and I chose this sandwich from her blog. What is more apt for a picnic than a sandwich right?
To be frank I am not a picnic person. Picnic time is meant to be a relaxing time and that is something which I am not good at as I cannot sit idle, thanks to my grandma’s genes . But both kids and K love to go to the lake or park and I tag along. Until now the only food which I have taken for picnic is lemon rice, tamarind rice or chapatis .. couldn’t part with the typical Indian food which I used to carry to school. For the same reason I could not consider sandwich as a lunchbox item .. weird I know
But with the kids growing up I guess we have to change and now we do have sandwich on the menu for dinner sometimes. With my spinach and garlic event I was excited to see this sandwich in Padma’s blog and it was pretty simple to put together and very healthy too. Off to the recipe.
2 cups spinach packed
4 garlic cloves
1 green chilly
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup corn
2 bread slices
Collect the main ingredients together. Do you see the icy layer on the chilly? Well that is because I freeze the chililes when I get them home so they last longer. Remember, Indian store is 3 hours away
Take spinach, garlic and chilly in a food processor and chop finely.
Heat olive oil in a pan. Add the chopped mix, corn and salt to taste.
Turn off the stove when the spinach starts to wilt. It just takes few minutes. Add cheese if using.
I am sure everybody knows how to assemble the sandwich, but a peek into my way . Take a bread slice and spread the mixture.
Place the other slice over it.
Heat butter or oil in a pan or griddle and toast the bread until golden brown.
That is it. Now off to the lake with the sandwich .. I sprinkled some parmeson cheese for color.
