Easy Tofu-Avocado Sandwich

I often rummage through my refrigerator to develop new recipes, simply based on what I find in there. Here is a delicious, healthy, quick and easy sandwich filling. Amounts can easily be increased to accommodate the number of sandwiches you would like to make.

  • 2 slices whole grain bread (I love Honey Whole Wheat sold by Great Harvest Bread Co.)
  • 1/4 soft avocado (I buy these every time I go to the grocery so I always have one or two on hand ready to use.)
  • 1/2 cup tofu (I used soft but firm would be ok too.)
  • dash Tabasco sauce (optional)
  • ~ 1 teaspoon ground flaxseeds
  • dash of herb seasoning (I used Mrs. Dash original)
  • hummus
  • dark green lettuce (I used fresh spinach leaves)

Directions:

  • Spread bread slices with hummus.
  • Using fork, mash tofu and avocado together in a small bowl.
  • Mix in Tabasco sauce if desired.
  • Spread on 1 slice of bread. Sprinkle tofu-avocado mixture with flaxseeds and herb seasoning. Cover with lettuce, and then top with second slice of bread.
  • Serve with fresh fruit and iced green tea.

Some of the filling will likely escape - just scoop it up with a spoon and enjoy. There are many ways to vary this recipe; add onions or tomato slices, use broccoli sprouts, use almond butter instead of hummus.

Use your creativity, imagination, and what you have on hand. Enjoy!
