Cucumber & Avocado Sandwich with a Cream Cheese & Dill Spread

Many non-vegetarian people people that we veggie people don’t like food. Or sometimes they think that we don’t eat yummy & fantastic things, so wrong…..

Spread the cream cheese/dill spread.

Add thinly sliced fresh, crisp cucumber slices. A sprinkle of black pepper and salt, to taste.

Layer on top the slightly firm avo’s. It can be a bit messy, so I don’t cut the sandwich.


Cream Cheese Spread:
1 tub of whipped cream cheese
1/2 tsp dill
Put both in a bowl and mix well. Then it’s ready to spread!

You could also add sprouts or lettuce 🙂


Open Face (no meat) Sandwich


What you will need to make a single sandwich:

Whole grain slice of bread-mine was quite long, about 7″
Balsamic vinegar
4 Tablespoons (more or less depending on the size of your bread) bean paste-Take a can of any white bean, drain, smash with fork. Can use at room temp, cold or warmed. Save the rest for more sandwiches.
Fresh, crisp, cucumber-peeled, sliced thinly. I cut my cucumber the length of my bread.
1 slice of provolone cheese
Small clump of alfalfa sprouts
1/2 half of a firm avocado
salt and pepper to taste

Sprinkle a little balsamic vinegar on your bread. Next, spread the bean paste to your liking (light or heavy). Lay down the cheese, thinly sliced cucumber, and sprouts. Now scoop out small bits of avocado and place on top of sprouts. Dust with salt and pepper to taste.

This is a nice serving of protein, veggie and grain! If my calculations are near accurate, I counted just about 425 calories for this meal. My bread and cheese were each 100 calories, half an avo is 140. Beans-about 60 calories, cucumber and sprouts about 25 calories together.

There you have it! Enjoy!

Vietnamese Lunch, Part 2



My daughter, her boyfriend and I went out to lunch in Alameda, California. We went to a Vietnamese place called Pho Singh http://www.phosinh.com The tofu sandwich was hands down the best sandwich I’ve ever had in my life! I was hesitant to order it at first because of all the carbs between the bread and the tofu. But to my surprise, this sandwich was worth every calorie and every single carb!

The bread was fresh, crispy outside, but soft at the same time! In the sandwich was tofu, long strips of skinned cucumber, green and red peppers, carrot sticks, cilantro and a fabulous anjou type of sauce. The sauce caused the sandwich to be slightly drippy, but oh man was it fantastic!

Avocado, Bacon and Fig Sandwich!

http://www.brit.co/fab-sandwich/avo fig sandwich
Figs are in season and we’re making the most of the crop before summer turns into fall. Earlier this week we rounded up 20 amazing sweet and savory fig recipes, and now we have one of our own to add to the list. Introducing our FAB Sandwich! The combo of fig, avocado, and bacon will make you rethink your old BLT.

– Figs
– Avocado
– Bacon
– Bread

1. Start cooking your bacon in the microwave or in a large skillet.
2. While the bacon is cooking, start prepping your other ingredients.
3. Slice the figs and avocados, and toast your bread.
4. Once bacon is crispy, assemble your sandwich—bread, bacon, avocado, fig, and bread.

Let’s get started with the recipe.

Start by gathering your ingredients.

Get the bacon frying before you start your other prep.

Slice the figs fairly thin but not so much so that they fall apart.

Slice the avocados in half and then in thin slices. Scoop out with a spoon.

Give your bread a good toast to medium brown.

Once the bacon is crispy and everything is prepped, start to assemble your sandwich. First, add the bacon.

Then add the avocado and finally the figs.

Ta-da! Easy peasy…and delicious! A bit salty and a bit sweet, this one might just become your new favorite sando.

Life is good, eat well
