Avocado: from dipping sauce to sandwich filling

There was only one ripe avocado in the bowl waiting for me. The great thing about avocados is that they are so versatile. And good. This way they can be processed into a beautiful chocolate mousse , but also into a healthy sandwich spread.

Also as a pasta sauce

This beautiful light green sandwich spread is a super healthy alternative to what you would otherwise spread on your bread. You can also use it as a (raw) pasta sauce or as a dip for strips of raw carrot and celery.

Good for your body

According to recent research by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, people who eat half an avocado on average are healthier than people who don’t. 
The ‘avocado eaters’ appeared to have a healthier BMI, a lower cholesterol level and a slimmer waist. Moreover, this group of people appeared to have considerably less chance of developing heart disease and diabetes.

I have put together a recipe for you with tasty and healthy ingredients: the lemon juice and the yeast flakes are full of vitamins. The avocado is an oasis of vitamins and minerals. They are full of healthy fats, vitamin K, folic acid, potassium, vitamin E, magnesium, vitamin C and vitamin B6.

  • ½ lemon
  • 5 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 3 tablespoons yeast flakes
  • 2, 3 or 4 sourdough spelled sandwiches
  • gomasio (optional, but tasty)
  • organic unsweetened mustard (optional, but tasty)

Squeeze half the lemon and put the juice in a bowl. Cut the sun-dried tomatoes into strips and add them to the lemon juice. 
Peel the avocado and remove the seed. Mash the avocado in the bowl with the sun-dried tomatoes in lemon juice. Add the yeast flakes and mix everything well. 
Divide the avocado mixture over the spelled sandwiches. You can sprinkle some gomasio over it and add a little mustard to every sandwich. Enjoy your meal!
