Beat the Heat Series ~ A’s Quick and Easy Carrot Sandwich

This is not much of a recipe but its a great idea for an easy and really quick sandwich to satisfy those after work hunger pangs, or even as a light dinner or breakfast option. It is also high on the veggie quotient and has no mayonnaise, and yet fakes the taste of it!! What more could you ask for? The recipe credit goes to A who I don’t know why has abandoned her cooking blog…because she has all these awesome ideas for quick and easy meals… She made this for me one evening, only because she spotted some grated carrots in my fridge….

A’s Quick and Easy Carrot Sandwich

time taken – 5-10 minutes

2 slices bread (brown preferably)

1 medium carrot grated finely

a pinch of red chilli powder or 1/4 of a finely sliced green chilli/ you can also use a little bit of tabasco or any other chili sauce

2 tablespoons thick curd (plain yogurt)

salt and pepper to taste

2 slices of tomato

a few lettuce leaves

olive oil to drizzle

toast the bread on a hot griddle / tava

mix the grated carrots with the curd, season with salt and pepper and add the chilly.

    Like this – even mayo would do fine instead of yogurt me thinks –

    1. arundati says:

      no ma, this was auto publish from a few weeks ago… the lemon mint tea actually was not planned!! the whole point of using yogurt instead of mayo is to make it healthier
