Even though my life is crazy busy right now, and I am very limited for time, I find myself looking forward to cooking dinner. I credit HelloFresh Canada for this because I definitely wouldn’t look forward to it if I had to worry about creating menus each week, shopping for ingredients, etc… The fact that everything is done for me and all I have to do is cook the meal makes for a most relaxing experience.

Brie Cheese, Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Sandwich with French Green Bean and Cashew Salad
It’s time to bring your childhood favourite into adulthood. Melty brie and sweet caramelized onions create the ultimate sweet and salty sammie. Crispy french beans and crunchy cashews amp up a simple side salad.
- 125 g Brie Cheese
- 2 unit Ciabatta Bun
- 56 g Onion, sliced
- 2 tbsp Balsamic Glaze
- 170 g Green Beans
- 28 g Cashews
- 1 tbsp Whole Grain Mustard
- 113 g Mushrooms
- 56 g Baby Spinach
1: Before starting, preheat your broiler to low. Wash and dry all produce. Slice the mushrooms. Trim green beans, then cut in half. Halve the buns. Slice the brie into 1/2-inch pieces.
2: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the cashews to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don’t burn!) Transfer to a plate.
3: Add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then the green beans and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add mustard and 1/4 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl). Stir until combined.
4: Add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pan, then the mushrooms and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies soften, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper. Add balsamic glaze and remove from heat. Stir until sauce has thickened, 1 min.
5: While the veggies cook, arrange ciabatta on a baking sheet, cut-side up. Divide the brie slices between the bottom halves of buns. Toast, in the middle of the oven, until lightly golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on your ciabatta so that it does not burn!)
6: Top the melted cheese with the half the mushroom mixture. Place top bun on top. Add the remaining mushroom mixture and spinach to the green beans in the medium bowl. Toss to combine. Divide sandwiches and green bean salad between plates. Sprinkle the cashews over the green bean salad.
HelloFresh Canada absolutely nailed it with this spin on a childhood favorite. I LOVED (and still love) grilled cheese sandwiches when I was young, and to me they are one of the best comfort foods. But HelloFresh Canada gave my childhood favorite a makeover and oh-my….these sandwiches were so good. The soft buns, the melty cheese, the sweet yet savoury mushrooms….perfection! I also really loved the salad and can definitely see myself making it again and having it on its own. This recipe is a must-try and I will definitely be ordering it again.
