Avocado is truly the king of veggie sandwich recipes. It is easy and outrageously delicious. There are quite a few variations of this sandwich that I have sampled in different natural foods cafe’s while on my travels. I have made these for guests on many occasions and it always goes over in a very big way. This is a fairly simple sandwich to make. It starts with layering a whole wheat bread slice with a seasoned avocado spread.. then is topped with layers of cucumbers, green pepper, and tomatoes, monterey jack cheese and alfalfa sprouts… all on whole wheat bread. It’s totally outrageous!
Whole wheat bread
Cucumbers (peeled & sliced)
Green and /or red peppers
Sliced Monterey Jack Cheese – (or vegan cheese)
PREPARE: Scoop out avocado and mash in a bowl till smooth. Season with garlic salt and chopped green onion to taste. Slice remaining veggies and cheese and set aside for the construction of sandwiches.
FINISH: Layer a slice of whole wheat bread with avocado spread… then simply layer remaining veggies & cheese on whatever order captures your imagination. Top with sprouts and last layer of bread and cut diagonally. Pierce with a toothpick and serve!
OPTIONAL: Spread a bit of low-fat mayo on top layer of bread. (watch out for the fat!)
