Adulting. That bittersweet word of inexplorable truth that sometimes makes us excited and scared at the same time – but we do it anyway. I was browsing through my blog archive when I realized how my food preferences have matured significantly for the past years. Before, I will eat anything I fancy with reckless abandon. These days, I can’t even finish a scoop of ice cream in fear that I might get the nasty diabetes everybody hates. Yep, hello adulting

Before, I deemed it was blasphemy to serve bacon with anything green. These days, the ratio of bacon to veggies on my plate is 1 to 3. Before, I would enjoy a greasy grilled cheese sandwich straight up. These days, I would sneak in something healthy, like spinach.

I am all about multigrain bread these days so, that's what I used for this recipe. On an equally good day, I would also use Italian ciabatta or even French boule - basically those variants that's sturdy enough to handle a cheesy filling and wouldn't turn soggy when grilled with butter. 

I normally use a combination of sharp cheddar and provolone cheese but I got myself acquainted with the amazing Organic Smokehouse Jack Cheese recently when kindly people from California Cheese Board sent some of their cheese products to try. The cheese surprisingly taste like ham and it melts beautifully upon grilling.

The organic spinach I used I got from Organic Veggie Mommies, an online marketplace for fresh and the best organic produce you can get here in Manila. I cannot stress enough the importance of eating organic produce which are devoid of the usual pesticides and chemicals most regular produce has. I have blogged about them here, and I highly recommend for you to check them out and try their organic products.

So to start, you just have to sauté the spinach in vegetable oil and season it with salt and pepper. Some days I add some Italian seasoning but even without it, it will still yield a delicious mix that can make your grilled cheese a bit more healthy and exciting. 

Be wary of the quantity of spinach that you will use because its volume will significantly decreased when wilted. So, feel free to use more than what was indicated in this recipe especially if your love for spinach can put Popeye to shame.

Once you have your spinach sautéd and your cheese sliced, it is time to assemble the sandwich. This is totally optional but I love spreading a bit of butter on my bread before placing two slices of cheese. Depending on the thickness and the size of your cheese, you may settle for one slice per layer or you may opt for two. I'd say thou shall not scrimp.

Add a spoonful or more of the sautéd spinach on top of the cheese slices then add more slices of cheese before covering with another piece of bread. You can be as modest as you want with your filling. But when in the mood to be a bit indulgent, feel free be as generous as possible.

On a day when I want to stuff myself silly with calorie bomb of a grilled cheese sandwich, I would spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on the outer face of the bread before grilling it. But that extra step will defeat the purpose of making this sandwich a bit healthy so let's skip that, shall we? Rest assured you will still end up with a beautiful crust that holds a gooey cheesy sandwich together.

As with any grilled cheese sandwich, this one goes perfectly well with a bowl of tomato soup. But even without an accompaniment, it can still easily fill you up because of the added spinach in the mix.
