If you’re a fan of this perennial kids’ favourite, this is Grilled Cheese Sandwich for adults. Add a bit more kick to your sandwich by creating it with the strong flavours of parmesan cheese and mustard microgreens. This is the perfect addition to a Sunday brunch, tucked in right beside the omelet.
125 mL (½ cup) grated parmesan
250 mL (1 cup) mustard seed microgreens
5 mL (1 teaspoon) olive oil 5 mL (1 teaspoon) balsamic vinegar
Tuck in to a Spicy Sprouts Grilled Cheese Sandwich that has some style! First, start growing your greens. To grow your microgreens, plant brown mustard seeds under lights or on a sunny windowsill at least a week before you plan to harvest them. Mist them daily and harvest them by clipping them with scissors once they’ve grown a strong stalk and two little leaves at the top. These microgreens are packed with spicy flavour. Now grate your block of parmesan cheese. Split open a baguette and place a sandwich-sized chunk in front of you, soft side up. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese onto the baguette and place it in the oven on broil for several minutes, just long enough for the parmesan to begin to melt. Take the baguette out of the oven and place it cheese side up on a plate. Toss the microgreens in equal parts olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle them on top of the cheese. Enjoy the spicy, sour, and bitter toppings mingled with the soft and crunchy textures of French bread.
