A simple sandwich brings happiness

30 Jan

This is my first post on thehungrymum so if you’re reading this – thanks! Hopefully you’ll stick around. I know from extensive blog reading that short’n’sweet is definietly the way to go so that’s going to be my mantra.

Today I hit the gym for the first time in years. Literally, the most exercise I’ve done in the past two years is unpacking groceries. Biggest surprise about gym world: it didn’t completely suck [and trust me, I despise exercising].

After all that sweating I decided a healthy lunch was in order so I made a yummy sandwich using Greek pitta bread. If you’ve never tried this bread stop reading now and track it down. Some delis and supermarkets store it in the chilled section as it keeps the bread fresher. Sidenote: this bread, fried with a smidge of olive oil, is divine when served warm with dips.

On a piece of swoon-worthy Greek pitta I spread beetroot dip [so lush], canned chickpeas [drained & rinsed], zucchini peeled into ribbons and a hint of tasty cheese. I meant to take a photo after a few bites to upload but didn’t get the chance [ahem].

I love trying new sandwich combinations but give me a wrap as my bread of choice any day.

What do you love on a sandwich?

    Just checking out your original post and I must say a good sambo is one of my favourite things in the world. Believe it or not, I love fancy ingredients, prosciutto, good quality Brie or delicious pickles/relish but seriously if I had to choose tow things that never disappoint can I say grilled tomato & cheese, :)

      Yes! Cheese & tom rocks! That is often my ‘go to’ sandwich, except sometimes I replace the tomato with, erm, more cheese.

    I love tomatoes in sandwiches. Thanks for reminding me about slicing zucchini; it’s zucchini growth spurt time in the garden and I am having to put on my ‘what to do next with zucchini” hat.

      I always need a reminder eat eat zucchini raw – it has such a lovely, crunchy texture. Is great i salads, too :)
