Green Farm Goddess Sandwich...
What does a Farmgal eat on a cold, crisp Saturday afternoon? This yummy little sandwich is one of my favorite go-to quick lunches. It's vegetarian, vegan, full of health and happiness, and packs a good dose of greens. With Winter here, I find that I sometimes don't get enough greens in my diet. It becomes a bit of a struggle. Winter kind of kicks on this potatoes, pasta, rice switch in me and I am constantly reminding myself...GREENS! I have even concocted a wonderful Green Monster Drink that I will be sharing soon - so yummy, you don't even know it's loaded with greens. The rest of the year is easy, while I am in the various gardens I am constantly eating little nibbles of green...which reminds me, I am so excited for Spring. It's coming, I can feel it starting to creep in. Yay!
GREEN FARM GODDESS SANDWICH
2 slices of Farmhouse Whole Wheat Flax Bread (or any good whole grain bread)
1 clove garlic
Handful of watercress leaves, washed and dried (or spinach)
6 slices of cucumber
1/2 avocado, sliced
A couple leaves of Italian parsley, finely chopped
salt to taste
pepper to taste
optional: sprouts, red pepper, aioli...you name it!
Toast the two slices of bread. Cut the clove of garlic in half, and rub the cut side on the toasted bread to flavor. Top one of the slices of bread with watercress, cucumber slices, avocado, parsley, a little salt and pepper. Place the other slice of bread on top and cut in half. Enjoy with a nice cup of homemade honeyed chai (recipe coming soon) and breathe in the afternoon.
