Roasted Sweet Potato Sandwich with Apples, Pesto, Kale, and Blue Cheese
This vegetarian sandwich is inspired by a sandwich on the menu at Flour Bakery in Boston.
1 large sweet potato, washed and cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and black pepper, to taste
4 slices hearty bread
1/3 cup chopped kale
2 tablespoons basil pesto
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Place the sweet potato rounds in a medium bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Place the sweet potatoes on a large baking sheet, in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bake until the rounds are browned and tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.
2. To assemble the sandwiches, lay two pieces of bread on the counter. First, add the kale. Top with sweet potato rounds. Drizzle the pesto over the sweet potatoes. Next, add the apple slices. Top with blue cheese and the second slice of bread. Cut in half, if desired, and serve!
