Ingredients

    Sandwich
    Stanley's Whole Wheat Bread, 2 slices
    TJ Goat Brie, 1 oz
    Fresh chives, long sprigs several
    Zucchini, .5 cup- sliced lengthwise
    Carrots, raw, .5 cup, sliced lengthwise
    Basil leaves torn

    Salad
    Leaf lettuce, 1.5 cup, chopped
    Red Onions, .25 cup, sliced
    Basil, 5 leaves torn
    Parsley, 10 sprigs chopped
    Fresh chives, chopped
    Mushrooms, fresh, .25 cup slices
    Vinegar

Directions

Cut the zucchini & carrots thick, but thin, enough to grill (or roast or or bake saute). For tonight, I am going to bake them: I have 3 large slices of each. Spray with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. I used the toaster oven tonight because it's too hot to use the big oven. Plus, it requires less energy, which is a bonus when you're trying to have less impact on the planet and your wallet. Bake on 400 until tender (15 minutes or so).

Spread 1 tablespoon, between the two pieces bread, of my almond pesto recipe. Bake for 4 minutes to toast. Add brie to toast and bake 2 more minutes to soften/melt. Remove from broiler, layer veggies, add the fresh chives and torn basil leaves and close the sandwich.

Toss lettuce with onions, shrooms, basil, parsley and vinegar (of your choice, I choose red wine). Add salt and pepper to taste.

Another filling, satisfying, lovely meal just under 300 calories but full of nutrients!
