Happy Columbus Day! With his end destination in mind, today's adventure into a new world of flavors is actually going to start out Asian. I have recently been on an Asian greens jag and following in Friday's footsteps, wanted to share a "fun, easy, convenient and delicious" new sandwich.
First off, I am not much of a bread eater. I bought some Napa cabbage (delicious!) and looked at that whole head of beautiful leaves and decided two would make perfect "bread" for a sandwich. First, I slathered each leaf with the spicy nut butter I made. Hummus, peanut or almond butter would be good, too. Then I put on some pea shoots (such a fresh, fun flavor they have!) and 3-4 pieces of the Partied Up Zucchini (from Friday). One I ate as an open-faced sandwich; the other rolled up. Truly delicious and amazingly filling even sans bread. Made room for a cookie a shoe-in. Here...take a peek...
Then, to make it your own on this holiday, perhaps spread on some Genoese flavors in honor of Columbus. How about a dollop of a lovely pesto or rich tapenade?
Whatever taste adventure in search of new worlds you choose to take, have a great Columbus Day!
