Always looking for new ways to eat the same old thing, I came up with this sandwich on the weekend:

  • boil an egg
  • grate 1/2 a small raw beetroot
  • chop up a handful of mixed leaves.  The veggie box salad mix this week was especially zingy: a mix of rocket, watercress, what looked like a young broccoli shoot – complete with a tiny piece of young broccoli, romaine, young beet root…those are the ones I recognized. 
  • mix all together in a bowl with some mayonnaise and pinch of dry mustard, salt and pepper, and a slice of onion (finely chopped)

  • slather the mix on a slice of wholewheat bread, stack another slice on top and slather the remaining mix on that, then add a third slice of bread.
  • Cut in quarters and eat.  Yummy and filling.

You can of course use any kind of bread.  You could stuff it into a submarine bun, or pita bread, or roll it up in a wrap – of if you are on a total bread fast, you could have it with rice or pasta as a salad.

Life is an amazing journey.

  • Turnip Pie the Spanish-Way (not)
    I was invited to a multi-national potluck supper, and was brain dead with what to make.  When that happens, I usually fall back on Spanish Tortilla de Patates, but I had yellow turnips in my fridge – not potatoes.  I’ve…Read more ›
  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
  • Today’s Whole Foods+
    Just like you, I used to cringe at the idea of  meal replacement shakes.   If anyone suggested them to me, I’d wrinkle my nose in disgust and say: “I only eat whole foods.” I only ate whole foods till I…Read more ›
