Recipe: Gorgonzola piadina with purslane and aromatic herbs

Sandwiches and bruschetta with herbs
June 06, 2011

The weather has improved, so and I took the opportunity to spend a peaceful hour to gaze my aromatic herbs. I picked up a few leaves from some of them, and I also harvested the first tender leaves of purslane, a spontaneous herb that grows anywhere in my containers during the summer months.

I took some pictures... before using them for this quick piadina (flatbread).

Heat two piadina (or tortillas or other flatbread) on a pan.
Stuff with gorgonzola (or blue cheese), emmental and purslane, fold in half and let the cheese melt.
Remove from heat, reopen them and sprinkle with a few tablespoons of chopped fresh herbs: I used dill, anise and caraway leaves, chives and curly parsley.

You sandwich looks delicious. One of the vendors at my local farmers market sometimes has purslane and I really enjoy it. Thanks for joining in Souper Sundays this week. ;-)
