Spinach, Chanterelle, & Mt. Tam Cheese on Olive Toast
If "La coeur a la raison que la raison ne connais pas", does the stomach too? Or the taste buds? Or whatever it is in us that makes us crave a particular food?
Incredibly, I'm still in my Gimme Greens obsessional phase. Although, it has branched out at times beyond spinach and bok choy to broccolini, mashed potatoes, carrots, anything that would be considered a vegetable side. I almost have an aversion to the complete meal - just give me the vegetables!
Anyway, tonight I decided to pull together an actual dish (with protein, starch, and vegetables) and it was quite delectable. A toasted slice of a generously-olive studded Olive Cheese Bread from my farmers market favorite Great Harvest Bread Company, topped with butter, chanterelles and spinach, sauteed separately in a little olive oil with minced garlic, and topped with a sliver of Mt. Tam Cheese from Cowgirl Creamery. Under the broiler for a minute or two and ....here was a heavenly toast. I ate it with a knife and fork. It was light, delicious, heavy on the spinach, and I'm seriously considering a round two.
