The king of green, kale deserves a place in a toastie, especially sandwiched with a good cheese like creamy Gouda. Kids can’t say no to a cheese sandwich, even if there is a bit of green.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, grated
2 generous handfuls kale leaves, chopped
4 thick slices white farmhouse bread
120g grated gouda
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Fry the garlic for 30 seconds, then add the kale. Cook for 3–4 minutes or until the kale softens and wilts, stirring occasionally. Season and remove from the heat.
  2. Brush one side of each slice of bread with the remaining olive oil and lay them oil-side down. Distribute the kale over 2 slices of the bread, sprinkle over the gouda and top with the remaining bread, oil-side up.
  3. Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat, then lay the sandwiches in the pan. Cook for 3 minutes, then flip them over and cook for a further 4 minutes until they are golden and crispy on the outside and the cheese has melted inside. Alternatively, cook the sandwiches in a toasted sandwich maker or panini press until golden and melted.
