When I’m not devouring dinner leftovers for lunch, I’m usually eating some type of sandwich. I try to make one new type of sandwich each week to keep things interesting. I’m just one of those kind of people that loves trying new things and with so many food thangs that I want to try- I have to be switching things up all the time. Some people can be satisfied by eating the same lunch day in and day out- I’m not one of those people.
So please let me introduce to you the star sandwich of this week- smashed chickpea and avocado salad sandwich.
All you have to do is mash one can of rinsed/drained chickpeas with one avocado. Then mash in some salt, pepper, cilantro, lime juice, and onion. Done. In my opinion, this mix makes enough for 2-3 sandwiches.
Usually I’d pack my sandwich with a greek yogurt and a piece of fruit… but I’m still loving on weird baby food snack purees (go ahead- judge- they’re delicious. the banana + beet + blueberry blend is out of this world) so I threw one of those in my lunch bag to squirt half of into my greek yogurt. Yum.
And of course I need an afternoon snack- honeycrisp apple + almonds. Simple and goood.
What are your favorite kinds of sandwiches? I’m always looking for more recipes.
In addition to Thanksgiving dinner leftover sandwiches (uhhhhh the best kind of sandwiches)- I’m looking forward to making this avocado beet pesto sandwich. It needs to happen soon because it looks to die for. And let’s not even TALK about how I needed THIS pumpkin reuben in my belly like… yesterday.
Keep it wicked healthy xoxo
