Broiled Tomato-Pesto Sandwiches
What You Need
1 1/2 cups packed fresh basil leaves, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
4 bagels or English muffins, split
1 large ripe tomato, thinly sliced
1) Combine basil, cheese, oil and garlic in a food processor or blender and process until well blended. Add yogurt and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
2) Preheat the broiler. Place bagels or muffins cut-side up on a baking sheet. Broil until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Spread each half with the reserved basil mixture and top with a few slices of tomato. Season with salt and pepper and broil until hot, 1 to 2 minutes.
