Healthy Kale Arugula Sandwich with Melted Cheese that is only 250 calories! This delicious open faced sandwich is perfect for lunch or a meatless dinner.
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.
