As part of theKitchn‘s cooking cure, I’ve been trying a load of new recipes for lunch. One idea that I will definitely be adding to my regular lunch rotations is an amazing spin on an old childhood classic: Peanut butter and Jelly!
Instead of the sweet route, this sandwich goes savory & southeast asian, with crunchy peanut butter, chili jelly, a drizzle of sriracha, and some fresh herbs on top. To lighten it up, I’ve decided to go open faced. Plus, the sandwich is SO much prettier that way!
Open-Faced Peanut Butter + Chilli Jelly
- 1 slice of seeded whole wheat bread (any will work, preferably not a very sweet loaf)
- 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter (I used Jif)
- 1 teaspoon sweet chilli jelly or orange marmalade (I have used both and they are equally delicious)
- 1 drizzle of sriracha
- A handful of cilantro, mint, torn into small pieces
Layer peanut butter, then jelly/marmalade, then sriracha, then cilantro/mint. Enjoy!
