Seitan Fajita

Our dinner last night consisted of these bad boys.  I put so much chipotle chili powder in them that my eyes burned while cooking them!  My goal is to one day making something so spicy Josh won’t eat it… I have a ways to go, because he devoured two fajitas and the leftovers that were in the pan.

‘Cado’ ‘n’ Cuc’ Sandwich

In Beyond Easy, Lunch, Sandwich on May 29, 2010 at 2:40 pm

This is not a recipe, per se, but rather instructions for making a darn tasty sandwich!

Guac Sandwhich

My lunch today consisted of one of the above sandwiches.

Ingredients for One Sandwich

  • 1 whole wheat, organic English muffin, toasted
  • 3 or 4 pieces of spinach
  • 3 or 4 slices of a peeled cucumber
  • 4 slices of avocado

Josh put cheese on his sandwich, which he said he really liked.

Tip: put the avocado on the top layer- the sandwich will be unstable if your put them lower on the sandwich.

Yes, every bite of an avocado is packed with fat and calories, but it is not bad fat. The nutritional benefits are outstanding!

I put the left over slices of avocado in a bag with lime juice so they will stay fresh.  Thinkin’ about making some tasty guacamole tomorrow!
