I can hardly believe it's almost time for going back to school! With only a little over two weeks left before the girls head back, I am starting my back-to-school lunch planning now so I'm not left scrambling for tasty options at the last minute. Since my kids take homemade lunches every day, I need to find creative, yet tasty and healthy options so they don't grow bored with what I prepare for them. They are both big on having a sandwich for lunch most days, so I like to use Nature's Harvest breads when crafting their sandwiches.
Each variety of Nature's Harvest breads have 8 grams or more of whole grains per serving, and since they aren't baked with artificial flavors, colors, or high fructose corn syrup, they are a great choice for a nutritious lunch.
My family really loved the new Finding Dory film that was out this summer, so we thought it would be fun to create a new sandwich inspired by the film to add to our back-to-school lunchtime recipe box.
We made a Toasted White Bean, Dill, and Spinach Sandwich with a painted on fishy.
Bread Painting How To:
Mix a few drops of desired shade of food coloring into a bit of milk. Using a small, food safe paintbrush (found in the baking section of the craft store) dip the tip into the milk mixture and *lightly" paint over your dry bread. The key here is to not soak the bread. A light coating is all it takes. Once your painted picture is finished, toast bread as normal to set.
For our White Bean, Dill, Spinach mixture you will need:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 cup cooked navy beans
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 cup fresh dill, chopped
tomato, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a small skillet. Add spinach and cook for 1 minute. Remove from pan and place on paper towels to cool.
Heat beans, garlic, lemon juice, and dill until cooked through. Place in a blender and pulse until you get a good, thick bean paste.
Place cooked spinach leaves on bottom layer of toast. Top with bean mixture and season with salt and pepper if desired. Add sliced tomato, then top piece of toasted bread. Serve.
