A hearty protein-rich, midday meal can stave off the three pm slumps. This Cucumber and Avocado Sandwich made with whole-grain bread spread with tangy goat cheese is sure to be a hit.
4 slices of whole grain bread
4 ounces herbed goat cheese at room temperature
2 Romaine lettuce leaves washed and dried
1/2 of a large cucumber peeled and sliced
1 large avocado peeled, pitted, and sliced
Squeeze fresh lemon juice
½ cup alfalfa sprouts
Salt and black pepper to taste
Spread the herbed goat cheese evenly on all the slices of bread. Take one of the slices and top with lettuce, cucumber slices, and avocado slices. Drizzle a little fresh lemon juice over the cucumbers and avocados. Add some sprouts and season with salt and black pepper to taste.
Place a piece of bread, goat cheese side down, on top to combine all the fillings.
Repeat with the second sandwich.
Note-if you can’t find herbed goat cheese, you can add herbs to plain goat cheese or use plain goat cheese.
This sandwich is best the day it is made.
