Radha's Fit: Avocado Mania

I love, love, love Avocados. And they are so good for your hair, eyes, and joints. The Omega 3 oils in them are very good for your brain too. Try this Avocado sandwich and you'll agree with me that this is indeed a hearty meal. I must admit though, that I eat this with vegetable chips. The combination is very nice. And a tall chilling glass of Green with a hint of honey and mint. Lovely.

Ingredients:
Whole Grain Bread Slices, 2
Walnut Oil, 2 tsp
Grapeseed Oil, 1 tsp
Cucumber, thinly sliced circles
1 tomato, deseeded and thinly sliced
1 green zucchini, thinly sliced
1 carrot shavings
1 Avocado
Juice of one lemon
Citrus zest, 1/4 tsp
Salt, as required
Pepper, as required
Vegan Mayo, as desired
Green Chili, thinly sliced
Cilantro, 1 Tbsp finely chopped
Pine Nuts, 1 Tbsp

Method:
In a bowl, add Walnut oil, Citrus zest, juice of one lemon (or as required), Salt, and freshly cracked Black Pepper.
Mix well. To this, add Cucumber, Tomato, Zucchini, and Carrot Shavings. Mix well until completely coated.

Scoop out Avocado into a bowl.
Add green Chili and Cilantro and mix well.
Add any leftover lemon juice.
Add 1 Tbsp of Pine nuts

Toast the bread slices until browned. Add grapeseed Oil to make crispier toast on the pan.
Spread Vegan Mayo one side of each slice.
Spoon Avocado Mixture on top of the Mayo.
On one slice, heap the marinating veggies.
Seal the sandwich by piling the other bread on this one.

That is one big and hearty sandwich. Radha Rayasam. The Avocado is so creamy. I absolutely love it.
