Clean Eating Grilled Cheese

Okay y’all, when I first thought of making this recipe; I wasn’t too enthusiastic.  I have been eating ‘clean’ for two weeks now and am kinda over pita bread.  I have seen a million variations on grilled cheese sandwiches, but not this one…yet 🙂   I didn’t want anything too tomato-ey, because that can get to be a bit overwhelming.  This recipe is the PERFECT combination of tomatoes, cheese, spinach, and pita bread.   I am urging you to TRY THIS RECIPE even if it doesn’t look great to you.   It is WAY more delicious than you can imagine.

Gather your ingredients:

  • 2 Whole wheat pitas
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 oz Mozzarella cheese
  • 6 Leaves of spinach
  • 2t Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

Get to cooking:

  1. Preheat nonstick skillet on medium.
  2. Slice your pita bread in half to make 4 half circles, then brush or spray 1t EVOO on each side facing up.
  3. Place 1 half of pita, olive oil side down, in preheated skillet.
  4. Once the pita is in the skillet, brush the other side with EVOO, then layer with 3 spinach leaves, 2 oz mozzarella cheese, and enough tomato slices to cover the bread.  Add salt to taste.
  5. Let cook on medium for 5 minutes then flip and cook on 5 minutes on other side.
  6. Gently remove the sandwich from the pan and serve!
  7. ENJOY!
