ThisEzekiel Bread Grilled Cheese sandwich is an exciting way to include the healing properties of sprouted bread into your diet. Kids and adults will love this easy recipe.
It is the bread that is prescribed for the people of God in scripture to maintain health and strength. This bread contains whole foods as outlined in scripture:
“Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread...” -Ezekiel 4:9
This bread is packed with protein ( 3 grams per slice) and complex carbohydrates that won’t spike your glycemic (blood sugar) levels. This recipe reinvents the familiar grilled cheese by introducing a flavorful combination of the sweetness of raisins with the heartiness of cinnamon. We compliment these flavors with an Italian flair using garlic and oregano!
Kids and adults will love this easy recipe. Serve at home or use in your lunch bag.
2 slices of Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Bread
2 slices of cheddar cheese slices (soy or rice)
1 tbsp. non-hydrogenated spread (margarine)*
4 dashes of garlic powder
2 dashes of oregano (or more)
Spread the margarine evenly over each slice of bread.
In a warm skillet or electric grill, place bread face down to melt the spread and warm the bread. Turn each slice face up and sprinkle with garlic and oregano.
Add cheese slices on one side of bread and place the other slice of bread on top. Let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the sandwich over and spread the remaining margarine on top. Let cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until sandwich is warm and browned. Cut into fourths (for kids) or halves (for adults). Serve.
Add a little (a teaspoon or more) shredded zucchini on one side just before adding the oregano.
You might also spread some of the margarine on top of bread.
Ezekiel Bread is a sprouted bread. Which means that the whole grains have been allowed to germinate (or sprout). This allows for the use of little to no flour. When sprouted whole grains are used. All of the fiber, bran, vitamins and minerals of the original grain remain. Sprouting also makes these nutrients more bio-available (or beneficial) to the body.
