but i am determined to resist that temptation because i know once i experience it with bacon, i'll never be satisfied with the original. and i'm determined to have at least one healthy take-to-work lunch in my repertoire.
i made this sandwich last week after seeing something similar over at realsimple.com, using mashed white beans, avocado, cucumber and red onions.
but seeing as i had whipped up a batch - i use the phrase "whipped up" pejoratively, because i am impossibly slow in the kitchen. those "30-minute meals"? plan on 90 if i'm the cook - of baba ganoush (using this recipe) a few days earlier, i decided to use that in lieu of the white beans. and boy did i hit on a winner.
first of all, i feel almost as strongly about the addition of avocado to any dish, as i do bacon. almost. so this sandwich had me from the start. and like i said, i really wanted to find something vegan AND tasty that i could make rather quickly on a busy weekday morning. this definitely qualified.
it might possibly be improved upon, and certainly variations of it exist, but i'm sticking with the original.
if it ain't broke....
