Avocado and Almond Butter Sandwich


Type: Lunch

Serves 2

Time - 10 mins


2 uncooked beets, peeled and grated 

1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar

2 teaspoons fresh orange juice 

1 small clove garlic, pressed 

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 large-size ripe avocado, halved,  pitted, and peeled

1 ⁄3 cup toasted, crunchy,  salted almond butter

4 large slices whole-grain bread

½ cup micro-greens or fresh herb salad mix

½ cup onion sprouts or any spicy sprouts


Squeeze the liquid out of the grated beets if needed. In a medium-size bowl, combine the beets with the vinegar, orange juice, and garlic. Add fresh ground pepper to taste. Cut the avocado into thin slices.

To Serve,

To assemble the sandwiches, spread 1 ½ tablespoons almond butter on each slice of bread, or enough to cover the entire surface of the slices. Lightly drop some of the micro-greens and sprouts on two slices, keeping a little aside. Arrange half of the grated beets on top, along with half of the sliced avocado and the remaining micro-greens and sprouts. Add a little salt and pepper, if desired. Top with the other almond-buttered slice of bread.

Nutritional Note:

Avocados are among one of the most nutritious of fruits providing a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as magnesium, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids.
