A taste of Thai in 10 minutes

By Lakshmi:

I was famished at lunch.  I had finished an intense workout and my body was craving too many things!  If I gave it permission to indulge, I would end up negating all the benefits of a good workout.  So I gave myself a challenge to have lunch ready in 10 minutes.

As usual, I peeked into the refrigerator to see what I might have available that could be turned into a yummy meal in 10 minutes flat.  Here’s what caught my attention.

Whole grain bread, peanut butter, Sriracha sauce, basil and spring onions

The ingredients suggested the flavors of Thai cuisine and I decided to create open face, finger sandwiches that would play to all my cravings!

I lovingly spread a nice layer of crunchy peanut butter on the bread.  Next I zig zagged my way over the bread with Sriracha sauce.  On went the finely chopped basil and spring onions.  The ready sandwiches went into the toaster to be toasted for five minutes.  Once they were out, I cut each slice into four slender pieces.  My lunch was ready to eat in 10 minutes flat.  The sandwiches looked beautiful and tasted delicious with one improvement for the next time.  I should remove the crust so it looks perfect:)
