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


Ingredients:

1 avocado

1 tomato

2 slices of sprouted whole grain bread


Instructions:


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.
