During a holiday when I passed a week without a toaster, I discovered pan fried rye bread, possibly the best accident ever!
Ingredients: Serves 1
- 2 slices of rye bread
- 1tsp of oil (olive or coconut)
- Half a can of chickpeas, rinsed
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- Sprinkle of paprika
- 1 tsp tomato purée
- Zest and juice of half a lemon
- Pinch of salt
- Balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 avocado, mashed
In a pan add a little oil, place the slices of rye bread in it and cook till golden brown.
Meanwhile, In a small pot, stir together the chickpeas with tomato purée, one teaspoon of water, the lemon zest and a pinch of salt.
Once the rye bread is cooked, remove from the pan and tip in the chickpea mix to let it cook for a couple of minutes.
Mash half an avocado on to the bottom slice of the rye bread and top with a sprinkle of paprika, spoon on the browned chickpeas, drizzle on the balsamic, a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt to complete the layers.
Finally place the other slice of the bread on the top and enjoy your sandwich!
