Shop for this week's Dinner in Minutes

Making these open-faced sandwiches hardly qualifies as cooking, and they're ready in 15 minutes. Paprika, a little flavored oil and good sea salt are all that's required for seasoning, but check out the alternative, optional ingredients. Serve with a crunchy salad or fresh fruit.

Boldfaced items below are your shopping list. If you'd like to see the entire recipe, just click on the recipe title. It's adapted from “Anna Getty’s Easy Green Organic” (Chronicle, 2010).
