Mashed Avocado and Sardine Toast
Here’s a quick and easy power lunch idea that will give your body everything it needs to get through a demanding day and keep it healthy over the long haul. The two key ingredients are ripe avocados and canned sardines packed in water or olive oil.
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 slices whole grain seeded toast
- 2 whole sardines, head, tails and bones removed
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 lemon
- 1 tablespoon chives or arugula, chopped (optional)
Mash the avocado and spread it on whole grain seeded toast. Lay a sardine or two on top, and, using a fork, mash it into the avocado just slightly. Season lightly with salt and freshly ground pepper and drizzle generously with lemon juice. For a green garnish, add chopped chives or arugula leaves.
