Avocado, Sprouted Bean & Tomato Open Sandwich
- 4 slices millet bread
- 1 ripe avocado
- 3 diced medium tomatoes
- 1/2 diced red onion
- 1 tbsp sprouted beans
- 1 tbsp sprouted sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes (B12 fortified)
- Himalayan salt
This is such a tasty lunch or afternoon snack, that's it worth mentioning. It's simple too with ingredients that are usually part of a healthy kitchen like ours and hopefully yours. Trust us you'll have it as one of your favourites.
We use millet bread and topped off with the delicious ingredients listed on the side. Now depending on what type of bread you use you may need to add more of the ingredients so use this recipe as a guide. If you can eat good quality salt then be sure to add a very light sprinkling. I just love it with tomatoes and find it works here too and really makes the dish.
Have you tried sprouted beans yet? For me, I find them an easy solution to gaining that bit more nutrition. I call them my little "bullets of protein". As a result, they are making more and more of an appearance in my meals.
Layer up the sandwich lay 2 slices millet bread per person on separate plates. Layer up the sandwich starting off with spooning out the flesh of the avocado, then adding the nutritional yeast, and a mix of the tomatoes and red onion. Sprinkle the sprouted beans and sunflower seeds over the top with a very light sprinkling of the salt.
There you have it. Enjoy it
Sometimes we add some butterbean hummus drizzled over this, a plain one or a hummus with a kick such as our Butterbean & Red Onion Hummus. Trust us though it's not needed.
If you can lay your hands on the millet bread by Biona and toast it as we have above (or a similar bread you can eat) then definitely try it. Once toasted it hardens like a cracker and you just take the slice layered with goodies and eat away. No need for knives or forks - so saving on washing!!!
Remember to use B12 fortified nutritional yeast flakes, not the regular version, especially if you're using it as one of your sources of B12.
Instead of using the nutritional yeast, Carni often replaces his portion of the nutritional yeast flakes with parmesan cheese. Remember there is no need though as these are tasty enough to have them licking their lips afterwards along with yourself.
As in the pics here a good alternative for a hot cuppa is live Kombucha by SynerChi. It's raw and organic with natural cultures and is lightly sparkling. So if you're looking for something different....that's what the liquid in the jug is in the pics. The flavours Carni tends to run to are the Oranges & Lemon and Raspberry & Rosehip. Though there is a green tea flavour one if you like green tea.
