Lamb, Roasted Tomato, and Artichoke Sandwiches with Olive Spread
Roasting the tomatoes makes them sweet and meaty; it also draws out much of the liquid so that you can assemble the sandwiches the night before without worrying about the focaccia becoming soggy. Pair with crunchy carrots for a balanced meal.
Nutrition Tip: Choose high-quality foods with nutritional benefits for the most bang for your buck. Tapenade spread on a fresh baguette will offer salty-meaty flavor from the olives (as well as heart-healthy fatty acids) and tasty carbs from the bread. If chocolate is your weakness, go for gourmet dark chocolate, which offers beneficial antioxidants along with great flavor. If you want something creamy, try thick Greek yogurt drizzled with honey. You’ll gain some calcium as well as the rich creaminess you crave. And if roasted lamb and homemade olive spread is your thing, this sandwich will make you happy (and healthy).
