This tartine is one of my favourite under five minute meals – it is so incredibly simple to make, easy to take to go, and delicious! I love this open sandwich idea, as it makes a great light lunch on the go but is still substantial enough to keep you full until supper time and ti supplies you with far more flavour. It’s topped with a spread of protein rich hummus, slices of skin loving avocado, alkalising lemon juice, parsley, chopped almonds or seeds and a scatter of antioxidant power from the sweet pomegranate seeds! One of the main benefits of making your own lunch is you know exactly what is in it. TOP TIP: I prepare it the night before, place it in a tupper-ware box, top with salad and take to work the next day. Yum!
1 slice rye/ spelt/ buckwheat/ pumpernickel bread (or try with my Gluten Free Quinoa & Chia bread)
1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
2 tablespoons regular hummus/ my sweet potato hummus
2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
a handful of chopped parsley
juice 1/2 lemon or lime
sprinkle of salt
a handful of chopped almonds/pumpkin & sunflower seeds
Toast your bread and place on a plate. Spread with hummus, and top with avocado and parsley. Scatter pomegranate seeds, and your choice of almonds or pumpkin seeds. Drizzle with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
3 minutes later, and your ready to get your tartine on! Enjoy!
