  • Place 1-2 wilted spinach leaves (or lettuce) over each slice, and top with tomato slices.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Toast on a grilling rack in the oven (300C) for 5-7 minutes or until the bottom of the bread is slightly brown.

    Anu: I can't thank YOU enough for this amazingly simple yet bursting-with-flavour sandwich! I read about it in a thread and the next day made this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner...yes, it's THAT good! I tried it both with the spinach and without; preferred it without and got my "greens" into me with Broccoli soup, instead. As one reviewer mentioned, you can NOT stop eating this! Seriously, I could have pulled up a chair to the toaster oven and kept making these, one after the other. What I did differently than your suggestion, was to chop up the tomato into diced bits, so I wouldn't be pulling off an entire slice with one bite. Lightly toasted the bread to warm it, took it out of the toaster oven, spread peanut butter onto a cracked whole wheat bread, placed tomatoe dices plus S & P on top, then put it back into the toaster oven to finish it off. Simple and simply amazing; a real keeper of a recipe that I'll be sure to share with others. :) NOTE: Almost 2 months later, I'm still enjoying this sandwich. Tonight, I added 1 strip of crumbled up bacon with the chopped tomatoes: HEAVEN ON BREAD! Such a healthy, yummy snack!

    Delicious sandwich. Used Swedish Chef's suggestion of chopping tomatoes, and I left out the spinach or lettuce. Will definitely make it again. Served with a bowl of homemade potato soup for lunch. Yum.

    Who would have thought tomatoes and peanut butter would go together so well. Will eat again.
