Caprese Grilled Cheese with Kale Pesto
Infuse a childhood favorite with a dose of nutrition by adding a tasty kale pesto.
• 1 mini whole grain baguette
• 1 ball of fresh mozzarella
• Basil leaves
• Kale pesto (recipe below) or your favorite pesto
• 2 Tomatoes, sliced in rounds
• 1/4 cup walnuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
• 1 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 1 cup packed tight baby kale, stems removed and torn into pieces
• 8 leaves of basil
• 1 garlic clove, chopped
• 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
• 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
To make the pesto: Place the walnuts, lemon juice, kale, basil, garlic, and Parmesan cheese in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until well combined. While running, add the olive oil, pouring in a thin, steady stream. When the ingredients are thoroughly combined, transfer the pesto to a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
To make the grilled cheese:
Cut a whole grain baguette in half. Spread kale pesto on each side. Layer tomato and basil on one half and fresh mozzarella on the other half.
Spray a panini press with non-stick cooking spray. (You can also make this in a cast-iron skillet, or your cooking method of choice.) Press the sandwich for 3-4 minutes, or until browned and the cheese has melted. Serve hot!
