Greens on Toast

7 Jun

This is a really nice, quick lunch, or it would make a great starter for a dinner party if served as a half portion. You can substitute in other vegetables based on what you have in.

Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds which can be found in most big supermarkets as well as in middle eastern shops, it lasts for  very long time and is also an essential ingredient in hummus.

Ingredients (For two): 4 slices of bread, handful of spinach, 2 inches of courgette (thin sliced), cloves of garlic (halved/large chunks) – we used 6 cloves but are massive garlic fiends, you may want to use less… , olive oil (approx 1 tsp portion), tahini (approx 1 tsp per potion), bouillon powder (approx half tsp per portion), salt and pepper, yeast flakes

Thinly slice the courgette and place in a tin-foiled oven tray with the chunks of garlic and liberally cover with olive oil. Grill for 5 minutes or until gently browned, making sure you turn them half way through. Meanwhile, toast the bread and wilt the spinach on the hob in a frying pan. Cut the toast into triangles and drizzle with olive oil and tahini, and sprinkle with bouillon powder. Place the slices of grilled courgette and wilted spinach on top of the toast, and dust with yeast flakes, salt and pepper.
