Avocado Cucumber Feta Sandwich


If there is something I can have everyday for breakfast without getting bored, it's avocado. Just some mashed avocado with lemon juice, salt and pepper on toasted bread for breakfast would make me super-happy. When I posted avocado and egg salad sandwich on the blog sometime back it was a hit. Many of them tried the sandwich and loved it. 

I wanted to make a complete vegetarian version based on that recipe. And this is the after result - a delicious hearty and filling vegetarian sandwich with avocado, cucumber, feta cheese, basil pesto and baby rocket. I love the flavor of rocket, so I always prefer it over lettuce or other greens in my burgers and sandwiches, but you can use whatever you like. I used basil pesto because that's what I had in hand but again you can use any pesto or whatever sauce you like. Instead of plain feta, I find that marinated feta gives more flavor to the sandwich. You can see how versatile the recipe is - you can chose the fillings according to your taste preferences. Do try these quick and tasty sandwiches and let me know how you like it.
