Family Pleasing Open Tomato and Avocado (and Turkey) Toasted Sandwich

Family Pleasing Open Tomato and Avocado (and Turkey) Toasted Sandwich

My entire family love these toasted open sandwiches.

Why they’re great

They’re super quick and easy to make.
Great for a light lunch or a brunch snack.
Great textures you can sink your teeth into.
Great for people who like to eat several smaller meals throughout the day.

This recipe makes 2 open toasted sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of toasted whole-meal/wholegrain/multigrain toast = 140 calories
    • Depending on the bread it can contain vitamin B1, B2, B3, E, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, cooper, iron and dietary fiber
  • 4 slices of tomato = 20 calories
    • Vitamin A, C and Lycopene
  • 2 tablespoons of ripe avocado = 60 calories
    • Fiber, folate, vitamin C, E, K and potassium
  • 1 tablespoon of red onion = 5 calories
    • Polyphenols, flavonoids
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Total = 225 calories

Modification
And for those carnivores out there, add a slice of sliced turkey breast for some lean protein.  Being a light meat the flavour will not overpower the rest of the ingredients.

  • 2 slices of turkey breast = 45 calories
    • Protein

Total = 270 calories

Recipe

  1. Toast the 2 slices of bread to your favourite level.
  2. Whilst the toast is toasting finely dice the red onion and slice the tomato.
  3. Once toasted, spread 1 tablespoon of avocado on each slice of toast. Putting the avocado on first will protect the toast from the more juicy ingredients.
    3.5. *You can put the turkey on here or at 6.5.
  4. Layer 2 slices of tomato on each slice of toast on top of the avocado.
  5. Sprinkle half the red onion on each toast.
  6. Finish with a pinch of pepper and salt on each open toast.
    6.5. *If you’re making sandwiches for multiple people put the turkey on last so it’s easy to recognise.
  7. Enjoy!
