Ingredients

  • 1 cup Strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin Seed (or Olive) Oil
  • 1 fl oz Lime juice
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Basil Leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp Balsamic Viniger
  • 1 Full Multi-Grain Wheat Bread Loaf
  • 1/4 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder, (Optional)
  • 1/3 cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 oz Parmesan, grated
  • 1/2 TBSP Balsamic Glaze, (optional)
  • Dash cayenne pepper, (To Taste)
  • Dash black pepper, (To Taste)
  • Dash Italian seasoning blend, (To Taste)
  1. Start by slicing your loaf of muti-grain bread into slices (I made the slices thick to be able to hold the toppings well). Lay them out on a cookie sheet and either toast them in a toaster oven or in the oven (no higher than 350 degrees) for about 7-9 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl whisk the yogurt, protein powder, garlic, 1/2 of your lime juice, seasonings, and 1 tbsp of Parmesan cheese together (this is going to go right onto the bread)
  3. In a medium size mixing bowl combine the rest of the lime juice, pumpkin seed oil, minced garlic, kale, basil, balsamic vinegar, almonds, and strawberries (if you like spicy food add some more cayenne pepper to this too). Use tongs and fold all of the ingredients together so the all get evenly distributed and soak up the majority of the liquid. Be sure to not get too aggressive and break the strawberries.
  4. Take the toasted bread out of the oven. Spread the Greek yogurt blend on each piece generously. Spoon the strawberry mixture over next and then garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese and balsamic glaze.

      This sounds like a yummy appetizer. I never would have thought to add vanilla protein powder to the mix. What a clever way to add a dash of healthy protein.
