Adults Only Grilled Apple Sandwich


vegan margarine
whole grain bread
nondairy mozzerella cheese
This sandwich was born out of desperation. I had a few mismatched ingredients and more than a few unexpected guests to feed. The recipe name came from our observation that only the adults ate these sandwiches, but try it on your kids, maybe they will like it after all. As soon as you tell them it's for adults only they usually want it.



Celery Pesto:

  • 1 cup celery

  • 1 cup green onion

  • 2 cups parsley

  • 1/2 cup roasted garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • extra-virgin olive oil

Make the pesto first to give the flavors time to meld.

Celery Pesto:
Roughly chop in food processor or blender everything except the olive oil.
Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil in slow stream just until mixture holds together.

Melt margarine in skillet over medium heat. Place slice of whole grain bread topped with nondairy mozzerella cheese in skillet. Grill until underside is lightly browned and cheese is melted. Remove to plate. Melt some more butter and add another slice of bread toppedwith cheese.
while second slice is grilling spread first slice with Celery Pesto and top with thinly sliced apple. When 2nd slice is done spread it with more Celery Pesto and place on first slice of bread. If the cheese isn't well melted nuke the sandwich for 10-20 seconds.

Use extra pesto to make:

  • milder sandwich spread: mix pesto and mayo

  • salad dressing: mix pesto and mayo, add a little fresh lemon juice and unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar, thinwith buttermilk or heavy cream. Taste and add sea salt and/or black pepper to taste.

  • pasta sauce: mix pesto and extra-virgin olive oil. Taste and add sea salt and/or black pepper to taste.

  • spicy tomato soup: mix a little pesto into Dried Tomato Soup.
