Asparagus and Brie Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese. Need I say more? This Asparagus and Brie Grilled Cheese recipe from The Foodie Dietitian is perfect for those days when you’re looking for some comfort food but still want to get your veggies in. Brie cheese gives this sandwich a delicious creamy texture, and the addition of asparagus helps keep things balanced.

To make, you’ll combine the pesto ingredients in a small food processor. For the sandwiches, you’ll roast asparagus in olive oil, salt, and pepper until tender. You’ll then assemble the sandwiches and grill on a pan until golden brown and heated through. Yum!

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 4 cups chopped arugula
