recipe: fig and prosciutto sandwich

fig and prosciutto sandwichso m and i stopped at Le Pain Quotidien for dinner and m gets a prosciutto, fig and pear tartine with ricotta, honey and wild arugula. standard to have your child try new things is introduce one new thing at a time for 3 days straight and observe any changes.

we’ve introduced a variety of cheeses, arugula and pear but there were several new ingredients: prosciutto, fig and honey. taking a step away from being the neurotic parents with a child with food allergies, we let our little one take a bite. k enjoyed it very much!

since the original sandwich was a little sweet, i opted to skip the honey and pear. instead, i topped some crackers with prosciutto, cheese, fig and topped it with a slice of cucumber.
