Good Morning Everyone, how are we all?
I have had a really good week and weekend actually. I am really noticing the affects of focusing on the positive and “what can go right”. It sounds so ridiculously simple, but I feel like the more we work towards focusing on what could go right in our lives, more things actually go right. Who wudda thunk it?
Try it for yoself…
Now onto this also ridiculously simple, yet delicious sandwich…
When I was at Uni, I used to love this thing called the Boots Meal Deal. Boots is an English pharmacy chain and for not very much money, you could get yourself a sandwich, a snack and a drink; perfect for a student on a wee budget.
For a while, they did this sandwich that was a veggie sandwich packed full of grated carrots, sprouts and hummus. Even though I wasn’t much of a vegetable fan at Uni (I pretty much ate beige foods until I was 20…I know…), this sandwich was just so freaking good.
When the J man asked what I wanted for lunch before we went food shopping yesterday, that sandwich immediately popped into my mind. My body was craving veggies after a rather decadent (yet delicious and no side of guilt) meal out the night before, so a veggie packed sandwich was exactly what I fancied.
It is so ridiculously simple, I probably shouldn’t even be blogging the recipe. But sometimes simple is the best and many times the tastiest.
This is the kind of sandwich when you bite into it you are like this is soooooo goooood.
Well at least this now veggie lover seems to think so…
Vegan Veggie Packed Sandwich – Serves 2
4 slices of bread of choice (we used a spelt and khorasan sourdough number we have been LOVING lately).
4 heaped tablespoons of store bought hummus
1 large avocado sliced
2 carrots grated
Handful of spinach
Handful of alfalfa sprouts
Dash of salt and pepper for each sandwich
- Spread a heaped tablespoon of hummus on each slice of bread.
- Layer up on one slice of bread of sandwich one, spinach and carrots. (Repeat for sandwich two).
- On the other slice of the bread, layer up the avocado and the sprouts. (Repeat for sandwich two).
- Add a dash of sea salt and pepper to each, and then carefully add one slice of the sandwich to the other. Slice and serve.
Have you always been a vegetable lover? Or have you been a late veggie bloomer like myself?
