I think the picture speaks for itself. Tomato, mozzarella and spinach tartines. A delightfully simple sandwich to excite your taste buds and your lunch box.
Tomato, mozzarella and spinach Tartines
1 slice of rye bread, cut in half
1/3 cup mozzarella, shredded
1/4 cup spinach, cut in a chiffonade
1 tomato, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon grated parmesan, divided in half
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven warms up, assemble the tartines. Place the bread on a foil-lined baking sheet and evenly sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Roll the spinach leaves into a cigar and cut into long, thin strips. Place a little of the spinach on each half and top with two tomato slices. Finish the tartines with a light seasoning of salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of parmesan on top. Place the tartines in the oven and cook for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese melts and the bread is lightly toasted.
