Avocado Tomato Sandwich

14 Sep

Avocados are in season and my Tití Carmín has a bountiful in her finca.  So every time she comes to San Juan, she comes carrying boxes and boxes of avocados.

I love the eat a few slices or wedges of avocado on the side of every meal… but once in a while you need to get creative as to how to enjoy an avocado in a new way.  This is how these sandwiches came about.

 

AVOCADO AND TOMATO SANDWICH

3 slices of ripe avocado
2 slices of tomato
2 slices of fresh mozzarella cheese
2 leafs of butter lettuce
Vegenaise – eggless mayonnaise
Salt and Pepper to taste
Drizzle of Olive oil
1 whole-grain ciabatta bread

 

  1. Halve the bread and drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Toast in oven at 350F for about 3-4 minutes.  Spread bottom bread with eggless mayonnaise.
  2. Place the avocado slices on bottom half of bread.  Top with mozzarella and tomato slices.  Sprinkle salt and pepper and drizzle a small amount of olive oil.  Finish with lettuce leaves.  Top with bread.

 

This is just so buttery and delicious…  It’s addictive.  I used to have this same sandwich for both lunch and dinner until the entire avocado was GONE!!!

    If there is one thing that goes great with avocados it’s added fat. I love drizzling them with some olive oil and a bit of salt if I’m eating them straight OR I make sure they’re in direct contact with the mayo (or vegan substitute in your case) when I make a sandwich. It just makes them taste so much better!

    Buffalo Mozzarella or the presliced one? I’m leaning towards buffalo mozzarella

      I buy these mini bonconccini mozzarella balls at Costco. I also buy it in the larger balls from Belligioso. Sometimes Costco sells them pre-sliced, but I tend to buy it in the mini balls because they’re more convenient for me…

      Rina… I am so glad u liked it. Hope u get to try other sandwiches we have here, like the SCLT Sandwich, which is a vegetarian take on the BLT/grilled cheese or even a portobello burger. OK??? They’re all easy enough for you to impress your family again and again.
