Mediterranean Salmon and Veggie Sandwich


Funk deemed this dinner “Restaurant Quality” so I have to share. I love hot, open-faced sandwiches on fresh, crusty bread, so I tossed some ingredients together on Ciabatta bread rolls that made for an easy weeknight dinner. I think I could eat this sandwich every single night.

Ingredients (makes 4 open faced sandwiches):

1 jar drained artichoke hearts

1 jar fire roasted peppers

2 Tbsp capers

2 cans boneless, skinless salmon

2 cups fresh baby spinach

4 ciabatta rolls, cut in half

Olive oil

Lemon juice

Sea salt

Soy mozzarella cheese


Cut artichoke hearts and peppers into strips.

Prepare salmon salad by fork mashing salmon with capers, a few squirts of lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil and pinch of salt.

Drizzle olive oil on ciabatta roll halves. Top with a few tablespoons or a little less than ¼ cup of salmon. Layer on artichoke hearts, peppers and spinach. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese. I buy a block of Trader Joe’s soy mozzarella and thinly slice it using a veggie peeler.

Set oven to broil and cook until cheese has melted and begins to brown, about 10 minutes.

Several weeks ago this recipe for Cannellini Bean Vegetarian “Meatballs” on Cookin Canuik caught my eye. Usually we keep a bag of Trader Joe’s vegan meatballs in our freezer for protein in a pinch, but these looked simple enough and a great alternative to some of the more processed “meatball” options out there.

As a result, I’ve made a conscious effort to eat less rice. To be honest, I can’t remember theshow me more
