Two Peas and their pod cooking blog had posted Avocado sandwich recipe on their blog. Modified the same recipe a little to make my version of sandwich.
Ingredients that you will need,
One ripe Avocado, one small/medium tomato,one small cucumber, 1 pod of garlic, half lemon, coriander,bread of you choice. I used 9 grain bread.
Mash ripe avocado using a fork or a masher.Finely chop garlic,tomatoes,cucumber,coriander. Mix the chopped veggies with mashed avocado.Add lemon and salt finally.
Toast the bread on a skillet . Spread the avocado filling and slightly press the sandwich on both sides so that the spread holds the bread well together.
