Caprese Toast

How is 2013 going for you so far? Keep up the momentum with this unique take on a Caprese salad. Cheers to a yummy and healthy new year!



Ingredients:
Serves 1 (about 200 calories)
  • 1 slice gluten free bread of choice
  • 1 slice Daiya Jack Style Wedge cheese; I used the wedge, but you can try with Daiya Mozzarella Shreds if you prefer!
  • 5 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 small heirloom tomato, sliced real skinny
  • 1/4 cup frisée
  • 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • Optional: sprouted extra firm tofu on the side
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, or set your toaster to high.
  2. Place cheese on bread, and toast for about 10 minutes, just until cheese starts to brown.
  3. While your you're toasting, take your frisée in a small bowl, and whisk with balsamic vinegar. Refrigerate until necessary.
  4. When your cheese and bread are at desired melt-i-ness and toast-i-ness, remove from oven, and top with basil, skinny tomato slices, and balsamic frisée. Add fresh ground black pepper if so inclined. Press down with a spatula so the flavors all absorb one another.
  5. I ate mine with some sprouted tofu on the side, as you can see in some of the photos.
