The first week's recipe was Heirloom Tomato Sandwich with Herbs and Creamy Tofu Spread from Whole Living. The original recipe sounded pretty good, but I
I didn't plan well this week, so I didn't have the fresh basil on hand. What I did have, was Fine Herb Chevre from Trader Joe's. This chevre has enough flavor that I didn't need to add any additional herbs. I also wasn't satisfied with just tomato. I had an avocado in my fridge that needed to be used, so I figured, "Why Not?". I just used boring old toast, because someone ate the last slice of the yummy seed bread I was going to use.
But with all the throw-together-ness of this, it turned out really yummy.
My Recipe (not that you need one for this):
1 Slice of Toast (I just used TJ's Organic Oats & Honey ~ would have tasted much better with an artisan bread.)
Herbed Chevre (You can easily add your own herbs into a plain chevre)
Tomato (fresh from the garden, if you have it, mine wasn't!)
Spread desired amount of chevre onto the warm toast (get a tad bit of melting going on), layer on thinly sliced tomato and avocado. Top with a basil leaf, if you have it. *I did not add any additional oils to the chevre, as I felt it was unnecessary. I think the reason it was added to the tofu (in the original recipe) was to give it the right consistency. Chevre is already spreadable.
Estimated WW Points: 4 Pts
Toast - 1 pt (It's easy to find 1 pt bread that is organic/all natural.)
Chevre - 1 pt (Chevre is 2 pts per oz, I used about 1/2 oz for one slice of toast.)
Tomato - 0 pts
Avocado - 2 pts (I used 1/4 of an avocado.)
Verdict: This was very yummy. Although simple, it is not something I would have thought to do. I will be trying this again, for sure! And for only 4 points, you can add a side of fruit and have a satisfying lunch.
