Serves: 2
For the Sandwich
  • 4 slices crusty whole grain bread, toasted
  • 4 tablespoons strawberry compote or strawberry preserves
  • 4 ounces triple cream brie, cut into four slices
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter or nut butter of choice
  • handful of arugula
For the Strawberry Compote
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2-3 tablespoons agave nectar
For the Sandwich
  1. Heat broiler on low heat.
  2. Take two slices of the toasted bread, place them on a baking pan, and layer each with two slices of the brie cheese. Place under broiler for 3-4 minutes or until cheese has melted and is dripping over sides of bread. Remove from oven and top each with 2 tablespoons of the strawberry compote or preserves.
  3. Slather reserved slices of bread with nut butter and top each with a gentle handful of arugula. Put sandwich halves together, serve immediately, and enjoy.
For the Strawberry Compote
  1. Heat a small sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add in strawberries and agave nectar and cook until strawberries begin to break down into a thick compote (15-20 minutes).
