Avocado and Tomato sandwich

I don’t know if it’s fair for me to say, since I haven’t had one in so long, but this really feels to me like a direct replacement for a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich.  I pile the avocado pretty high, and it has that same creamy consistency that I remember from open faced toasted cheese and tomato sandwiches.

Serves: 1

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes


1 avocado

1 tomato

2 slices of sprouted whole grain bread


Toast the bread, and slice the avocado and tomato.  Spread half the avocado one one slice of toast, and the other half on the other slice.  It may seem like a lot of avocado, but pile it high, and smash it into the toast with a fork so it gets nice and creamy.  It might end up being a 1/4 inch or so thick.  Then pile on the tomato and press it into the avocado a little so it won’t slide off.  That’s it, you are done and ready to eat!!

Try this on it’s own for breakfast, as a snack, or even a small meal.  Or have one with a bowl of hot soup to recreate that grilled cheese and soup combination that I remember eating as a kid.  No matter how you decide to enjoy it, be happy to know that this simple version is much healthier than the old classic.
