I first learned of this type of sandwich from a local place. I went for a bite to eat with a girlfriend and I went out on a limb to try some of their gluten-free open-faced sandwiches.
There was an arugula sandwich there that inspired this one! It all starts with some cream cheese. For me I use dairy-free cream cheese. You are welcome to use what works for your belly!
Then you are going to cut up a leek. I have an obsession with leeks. They are just super delicious!
You are going to dice the leek and mix with the cream cheese!
Once you have your mixture combined, you are going to spread it gently onto your bread. If you want to make this into an open-faced toast sandwich that works too!
Just pop the bread into the toaster before spreading your mixture! The last step is to top your sandwich with arugula.
What exactly is arugula?
I think the arugula is a pretty special ingredient.
You might ask yourself:
Is arugula good for you? Great question! I googled it, and the all knowing internet says that arugula does provide numerous health benefits because it is high in nutrients.
Arugula is low in calories, just like many of its leafy green counterparts. It is packed with vitamins such as C, K and A. It also contains folate, calcium, iron potassium and magnesium.
See there is LOTS of good things about arugula. So I am thinking the benefits are looking good. And good for you!
