With so much kale growing in the garden right now, we’ve been picking pounds worth every weekend to bring back to the city and wonder the frequently asked Summer question “What are we going to make with it?”.   Kale pesto is a favorite, as is Potatoes and Kale, but I wanted to start to bring the kale into my lunch so I quickly created this Melted Kale Arugula Cheese Sandwich.  I say quickly because it took me less than 15 minutes to make the sandwich, photograph it and eat it.  Since you’ll only have to worry about Step 1 and Step 3,  this sandwich will take you 5 minutes.

First, start out with some delicious kale and arugula.  Our kale comes straight from our very green at the moment garden.

Wash your kale and arugula if it isn’t already.  Make sure to dry it completely.  Add to a bowl.

Gather 2 slices of your favorite bread. I love Nature’s Harvest Light Multigrain bread because it’s only 40 calories a slice and it’s hearty to hold up to this sandwich.
