Avocado and Sprout Club Sandwich

Thinly sliced white sandwich bread should be soft and fresh. Use a homemade white or wheat bread, or a commercial home-style loaf. Select avocados that give slightly when pressed gently. If only firm avocados are available, buy them three days ahead so they can ripen.

Ingredients

  • 12 slices white sandwich bread
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch radishes, very thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces alfalfa sprouts
  • 8 ounces goat cheese, room temperature

Directions

  1. Place bread under the broiler, and toast until golden on both sides.

  2. Prepare avocado. Using an 8-inch chef's knife, cut to the pit, slicing avocado all the way around the middle. Twist top half off. With a short, sharp-but-careful chopping motion, embed knife in pit; twist slightly, and remove pit from flesh. Scoop flesh from skin with a large serving spoon, or peel both halves.

  3. Place avocado meat in a small bowl, and add salt and pepper. Using the back of a fork, mash avocado into a chunky puree.

  4. Spread the puree over 8 pieces of toast. Top with radishes and sprouts. Crumble goat cheese over sprouts.

  5. Stack sandwiches together so that each sandwich has two layers of avocado, radish, sprouts, and goat cheese and three slices of toast. Cut in half, and serve immediately.

Cook's Note

Even meat lovers will enjoy the textures and tang of this vegetarian club. Layers of mashed avocado, crunchy radish slices, sprouts, and crumbled goat cheese are perfect for a springtime lunch break.

    Good sandwich. If you have room on your kitchen counter grow your own sprouts. Very easy to do, and you won't have to worry about bacteria and e.coli germs in the growing water of ones you buy. Reading about that turned me off sprouts for a year until I started to grow them. So simple, so fresh.
