Many of you may not know but the chef in my family is my hubby!! He loves cooking (+ I love eating = happy couple!). But I do like creating QUICK dishes .. like our mini pizzas (without any tomato sauce), but with other yumminess, and the best part – it can be made in 10 minutes (that’s my kind of cooking!). Ready for the how? Start the clock (heat oven at about 275!!) ….. get fig or apricot spread:
… spear the fig/apricot spread onto the pita bread, then grab aluminum foil and place a sheet onto the pan, place pita bread on foil then slip into the oven for 3 minutes ….
… and while that is baking away go … chop chop chop cheese (I like using brie). By the time u chop the cheese the pita bread should be nicely (lightly) toasted. Do you like my twig cheese cutter (aka: my butter knife)?
Now, remove the toasted pita bread and add the cheese (yuummm), then back to the oven it goes for no more than about 3 minutes … enough time to slightly melt the cheese (SLIGHTLY … don’t go overboard so you can taste the texture of the yummy cheese):
Now in those 3 minutes of oven time, go prep the arugulaaaa (I loooove arugula, I also love saying the word ARUGULAAAA .. it’s a fun word to me). Oh, sorry, I forget we have stuff in the oven, so where was I ….
.. get a bowl, add arugula + dash of salt + dash of ground pepper + (the secret weapon) lime juice (feel free to use FRESH limes) … mix all (feel free to do a mixing dance at this time!!!):
Take out the pita bread from the oven, add the arugula mix then, cut the bread (like you would cut a pizza pie!), then ….
… BITE on:
Yuuuum! Want some?
