The 4 Ingredient Experiment

Half of my experimenting in the kitchen comes out of using leftover ingredients with our pantry staples.  I like to think that the test of the perfectly imperfect kitchen, is one where most combinations of ingredients result in everything tasting great.   Last week, I put our kitchen to the test, experimenting with four leftover ingredients in two different sandwiches.  They use elements from the Shitake Mushroom & Lentil Tacos, my turkey sandwiches at work, and our Egg White Sandwich.  The resulting sandwiches turned out incredibly flavorful, satisfying, and easy to prepare – making my experiment a success!

Some notes

  • The four ingredients I used were:  Toasted whole wheat sandwich thin, Micro Greens (mixed or arugula), 1/2 tbsp. Miso Herb Sauce, and 1/8 mashed avocado
  • The two ways:   Egg whites or turkey (I think any protein will work here)
  • For the turkey sandwich, I added about 1/3 cup fresh baby spinach
  • Stored in the refrigerator, the Miso Herb Sauce lasts about a week
