my favorite sandwich

January 21, 2010


I’m not including this one in the recipes section since it’s not technically gluten-free; and besides, I feel a sandwich should be a spur-of-the-moment, no recipe-required sort of thing.  Still, I make this combination quite a lot:

2 slices Ezekiel 4:9 Sesame bread
1/2 an avocado, sliced
A squirt of lemon juice
Grindings of black pepper
1/2 plum tomato, sliced
A few slices cucumber
A handful of salad sprouts
A good spreading of Phil’s Popeye Pesto

Sometimes people who can’t tolerate gluten have no problem with sprouted breads like Ezekiel, but if you don’t want to risk it then you could easily use cabbage leaves to wrap the rest of the ingredients.  Or even a large corn tortilla.  The sprouts are non-negotiable.

And you have to try the pesto.

    The honour is mine, Phil! And yes, you are one of the healthiest people I know — starting with your inspiring outlook and approach to life.
    I wonder if you’ve tried growing your own sprouts?

    Oh my, what an honour to have a recipe of mine on here! Does this mean I’m healthy?! :P ha ha

    Went to our favourite hangout on the weekend and got (among other things) sprouts. So yummy. I’d forgotten how nice they are! Apparently, according to the box, they are a winter superfood!

    Miss you! xx
