My Best Healthy Avocado Sandwich, a marvellous vegetarian sandwich, is a direct inspiration by a nice foodie friend who loves healthy food and blogs about it. She’s Divina Pe and has a blog, Sense & Serendipity. Her recent blog post, Healthy, Sexy, Cool Avocado Sanwiches, showed how to make an easy, impressive avocado sandwich. The pictures were so captivating that I had to try it. So yesterday I made a very nice, wholesome bread from spelt flour and finely gound seeds to make this avocado sandwich. This bread recipe is a real trial for me. I played around with the ingredients. So glad it came out very successful. I’m happy to share with you here:
Ingredients A (bread)
200g whole meal spelt flour
300g plain organic flour
1 packet fast action yeast
1t sea salt
150g finely grounded seeds and nuts (any combination)
450g warm water (approx.)
You can grind the nuts and seeds yourself or you can buy ready ones. I used a ready ground one, pictured here.
Put 100g warm water in a bowl. Add in the sugar and yeast and stir. Leave it to froth about 10 minutes. Put the rest of the other ingredients in a big mixing bowl and add in the yeast mixture. Mix together and knead until well mixed. You don’t have to knead too long. Cover with a towel and leave aside to rise for about 30 minutes. You can make into 2 loaves or into 12 buns. I like to make buns because it takes shorter time to bake. Leave aside to prove again for about 10 minutes and then bake it at 200 degrees Celsius for about 12 minutes. The buns are cooked when they sound hollow when tapped at the bottom.
Cut the buns open and fill it up with the above filling ingredients. You can sprinkle some salt and pepper if you like. I use Real Yorkshire Cranbery Cheese which is very tasty and flavourful.
Nothing beats homemade bread. It tastes and smells great. This is really a very, very fabulous sandwich, so fresh and so full of flavour and goodness. It is easy to make too. I seldom eat sandwiches but I’ve come to like it. With the homemade buns, you can make many types of sandwiches. Divina Pe has suggestions on her blog. Take a look at her blog and don’t forget to leave some comments on it.
You can also use homemade nan to make this sandwich. If your nan is thick, you can cut into half. Or you can make the nan thinner and use it as it is. I just made it the other day. You can read it at Tandoori Chicken and Nan.
