Give your basic grilled cheese a flavorful upgrade with tender kale, lightly spicy cherry peppers, and grainy mustard.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Uncooked kale

2 cup(s), chopped, packed

Pickled red cherry pepper(s)

2 Tbsp, finely chopped

Light multigrain bread

2 slice(s)

Whole-grain mustard

2 tsp

Reduced fat American cheese

Instructions

  1. Place kale in a small microwave safe bowl and sprinkle with ¼ tsp water. Cover with plastic wrap and poke holes on top to vent. Cook kale for 3 to 3 ½ minutes or until wilted. Remove plastic wrap and press kale with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel to remove any remaining water. Stir in chopped cherry pepper.
  2. Spread grainy mustard on one slice of bread, layer with kale mixture and cheese. Top with remaining slice of bread.
  3. Coat a small nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Cook the sandwich for 2-3 minutes per side or until the bread is toasted and cheese is melted.
