Did not like this recipe
Delicious and filling. I will be making this again
Can I sub ground flax for the pine nuts in the pesto part of the recipe? My husband is nut free.
I found this on the internet: “Pine nuts in pesto can easily be replaced by other nuts: walnuts, pistachios, almonds, and even sunflower seeds, are all a perfect pine nut replacement.”
What can I sub for pine nuts in the pesto part of the recipe? Ground flax, maybe??
This looks really good
where can you find whole grain bread that looks like this? I don’t think Dave’s bread will get crisp like the photo?
I do not have a sandwich presser, what could I use instead?
I picked up a George Foreman Grill at my local thrift store many years ago and use it to make panini-style sandwiches and a bunch of other things. The grates are non-stick; perfect for no oil cooking. They come in a variety of sizes too.
I toasted the bread in the toaster. However I’m adding a panini press to my Christmas list
Toast each sandwich in a dry skillet over medium heat, and use a second skillet (with a couple of soup cans inside) to weigh it down. You’ll need to flip each sandwich to toast on both sides.
Very pretty and flavorful. It will be a family favorite!
I have not yet made this, but it sounds phenomenal. My husband cannot eat anything with nutritional yeast due to HS, can you provide a substitute?
I just left it out and didn’t notice any lack of flavor.
What could be used in place of nutritional yeast? My husband has HS, a skin condition, and cannot eat it.
