Earthbound Farm co-founder Myra Goodman, along with her daughter Marea, recently released Straight From The Earth, a cookbook of wholesome vegan recipes. If you’re jumping on the veggie-loading bandwagon, this is a cookbook you’ll need in your kitchen arsenal. Take this sweet and savory grilled fig sandwich for a spin come lunchtime. 

Wow! Just wow. This sandwich is an unbelievably tasty combination of warm crusty bread, savory pistachio pesto, rich caramelized onion, peppery arugula and sweet and savory grilled figs. I hope you enjoy this magical meal as much as I do. Although there are multiple components to this recipe, it doesn’t take too much time to make. Save it for a day when you’re craving something spectacular, and turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary one with your first bite.
