Chef Gutierrez has simplified a classic tartine into an easy-to-handle open-face sandwich. Golden beets, peppers and slender green beans supply a good portion of vegetables for lunch; mayonnaise blended with edamame creates a unique spread. The combination of higher-end ingredients is an opportunity to upcharge for this lunch item.

Ingredients

12 raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 small garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup cooked soybeans (edamame)
1 tsp. red wine vinegar
Dash salt
1/2 cup golden beets, cooked and cubed
1/4 cup red bell peppers, julienned
4 peppadew peppers, quartered
12 haricots verts (slender green beans), cooked
1 baguette (10-in. long), sliced horizontally in half, toasted
3/4 cup shaved manchego cheese
2 tbsp. vinaigrette dressing
1 bunch micro-greens

Steps

  1. In small bowl, combine shrimp, garlic and olive oil; toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 30 min.
  2. In food processor, combine mayonnaise, soybeans, vinegar and salt; blend until smooth. Chill in refrigerator.
  3. Heat sauté pan over med. heat. Add marinated shrimp; sauté until just pink.
  4. In bowl, combine beets, bell peppers, peppadew peppers and haricots verts; set aside.
