1 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
¼ cup almonds, whole
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
To assemble (per sandwich)
2 slices Bread SRSLY Classic Gluten-Free Sourdough, sliced diagonally
Tomato, thinly sliced
1 tbsp pesto
½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Make the pesto: Combine basil, almonds, cheese, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Pulse until it begins to form a paste. With the motor running, slowly stream in the olive oil, adding water, if necessary, to combine. Season to taste.
- Heat oil in a nonstick fry pan over medium-low heat. Spread cheese on one slice of Bread SRSLY sourdough. Top with arugula and tomato. Spread 1 tbsp pesto on the remaining bread, and sandwich them together.
- Transfer sandwich to the pan, cook over low heat until the bread begins to crisp, and the cheese begins to melt, about 5-7 minutes on each side.
