As you may know I absolutely love Newman's Own Organic Balsamic Vinegar and use it...often! (you have no idea) -  I made this for lunch and it may very well be my absolute new favorite dish to make...okay...EAT!  And yes, these are totally fun to make too! Enjoy!  


Ingredients used:

Trader Joe Organic Olive Oil
Newman's Own Balsamic Vinegar
Organic Bella Mushrooms (package)
Fresh Asparagus (a bunch)
Organic Onion (medium size)
 Prosciutto
Goat Cheese (have I mentioned I LOVE Goat Cheese)
Sharp Cheddar - Organic
Fennel Seeds
Sea Salt
Ground Pepper
Ezekiel Sprouted Torts
Annie's Goddess Ranch


Heat your iron skillet.  Add olive oil, diced garlic, and pieces of fresh asparagus
Add diced onion, bella mushroomsfennel seedground pepper, sea salt and cook for about four minutes.
Add three large dashes of the balsamic vinegar and another dash of olive oil.
Saute for until done. Place veggies in heated bowl.

Cook your prosciutto and tear into bits.

In your hot skillet:  Add a large dash of olive oil, place one sprouted tort.  
Add spoonful of your cooked veggies & top with prosciutto, sharp cheddar and goat cheese.


Top with another tort, add another dash of olive oil, flip and cook other side.  Add extra veggies on top if desired.


Slice and add a bit of organic ranch if desired.  I used Annie's brand.

As always, I buy organic whenever possible.  If not, I look for labeled non-GMO products.  In this recipe almost everything but the asparagus was organic.  The asparagus was local (and so yummy).

This recipe is absolutely delicious and super easy to make.  Substitute whatever fresh veggies you happen to have and have fun!

This is not a sponsored post, I buy these ingredients on a regular basis!

I have never seen a sprouted tort. What's in them? Do they contain soy?

island girl said...

Hi Quite Carrie, They are really spectacular and when you cook them (as in this recipe) in olive oil...they are even more so! Here are the ingredients from their site. (I have it linked in the post if you want to see...) Let me know when you try them!

Organic Sprouted Wheat, Filtered Water, Organic Sesame Seeds, Organic Sprouted Soybeans, Organic Sprouted Barley, Organic Sprouted Millet, Organic Sprouted Lentils, Organic Sprouted Spelt, Sea Salt.
