My favorite sandwich

I'm a simple person. I guess you already figured that out; my favorite weeknight dinner is beans and rice. Really? Yeah, I know.

Here's my simple sandwich cure for the weekdays: an avocado sandwich. Dress it up simple with some vegenaise. Or make it fancy: puree the avocados into a spread (while you're at it, add some vegenaise to that avocado to skip the step of adding it later. Or better yet, use a magic bullet and add onion, garlic, and lime!).

Additional toppings for me vary, based on what's in available in my fridge. If I have nothing but vegenaise, bread, and an avocado, then I'm not opposed to eating just that (pictured left). However, my favorite version of the avocado sandwich includes the blended avocado (with onion, garlic, and lime mixed in), alfalfa sprouts, tomato, red onion, and romaine lettuce.


  1. Mmm, I love avocado sandwiches, or avocado on toast, or beans & rice with avocado!

  2. Beans and rice with an avocado is awesome! Add a spoonful of vegenaise, and I'm in heaven!

  3. I love eating an "avocado bowl" -- half an avocado, sprinkled with salt, and a dash of balsamic vinegar. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  4. your name for that!! I eat those too - usually with just a little salt. I'll definitely be trying the addition of balsamic vinegar next time I eat an "avocado bowl!"
