I am constantly looking for simple recipes for lunch. And by simple, I mean simple enough to make at 7 in the morning since J likes to take lunch from home a couple of times a week, rather than eating out every day.
While usually we make salads, today I wanted to do something different and whipped up a sandwich. It’s really easy to make and has basic ingredients that all of us will have at home.
Eight slices of wheat bread
Carrots (grated) – 1/2 cup
Lettuce (grated) – 1/4 cup
Roasted peanuts (crushed) – 2 tablespoons
Mayonnaise – 3 tablespoons
Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon
Salt and black pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Use as a spread to make a sandwich.
The spread tastes better if you refrigerate it for a couple of hours. You can also make it the night before and prepare the sandwiches in the morning.
I crush peanuts using a mortar & pestel because I like to have that crunch and texture in the spread. A blender will grind them too fine.
You can also substitute the mayonnaise with hung curd to make a healthier sandwich.
Try this recipe and let me know what you think.
