Flora’s seasonal recipe: Spring spinach + mozzarella sandwich

6 May

4639259240_d50c976cbbI love making lunch, but didn’t have much time to really cook, and hadn’t prepared anything the night before like I usually do.

I did however, pick up a bundle of spinach at the farmer’s market this weekend, which inspired my meal choice today.

I had some leftover mozzarella from a delectable kale pizza I had made, and some fresh ciabatta bread. Why not make a quick Spring spinach and mozzarella sandwich?

The result was pretty spectacular:

Serves 1 – Prep time – 3 minutes – Total time 6 minutes


  • 2 pieces of ciabatta bread
  • 2 small slices of fresh unsalted mozzarella
  • 1 handful fresh spinach
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt


1. Prep ingredients: Cut up your bread, pop in the toaster. Slice your cheese, rinse and pat dry your spinach.

2. Assemble: Remove bread from toaster, drizzle olive oil on each side, add on 1 slice of cheese to each side. Top the cheese with sea salt, then layer the spinach on top. Marry the two pieces of bread, press down and dig in!

Enjoy the flavor of Spring in this 6 minute lunch!
