Healthy doesn’t need to be boring. This creamy and refreshing sandwich is made of all the natural ingredients. There is NO MAYONNAISE in it. Instead, it gets its creaminess from the soft and buttery ripe avocados. It is so simple, easy, and quick sandwich recipe. Perfect go-to breakfast on a busy morning. & Trust me, after trying this recipe, you will never buy any sandwich spread or mayonnaise from the market. Guaranteed!
We both love sandwiches. And we landed in a perfect place – Germany. It is the land of the most delicious bread. The bread here is crusty from the outside and soft from the inside. And the flavor is to die for. We experiment with a lot of different sandwiches. Earlier, our refrigerator used to be full of different spreads and sauces. But since we started buying things after looking at the ingredients, we had to say bye to all those spreads and sauces.
The store-bought sandwich spreads, mayonnaise, and sauces contain so many nasty ingredients. They are not at all healthy to eat especially for those who love sandwiches and eat them a lot. That’s when I started experimenting with different ingredients to create some spreads for our sandwiches. I even made a sandwich spread using tofu. That is vegan and extremely delicious.
This recipe happened by chance. I had some leftover ingredients lying around in my refrigerator. I wanted to finish them. One day, Jatin was working from home and asked me for some snacks. He was hungry and I was ready to finish those ingredients that were about to expire 😀 I mashed the ripe avocado, crumbled some feta cheese, added some herbs and my sandwich base was ready. I applied it generously on the toasted bread with some veggies on top. I gave it to Jatin and I was nervous because mixing cheese with avocado sounds like a weird combination. He came to me and asked for one more sandwich. Ahhhh…I had nothing left. But he was craving for more and said that it was one of the best sandwiches I ever made. Yay.
Since then, we make this avocado-feta sandwich a lot. Avocado and Feta Cheese are actually a match made in heaven. They taste so delicious together. Moreover, it is so simple and quick to make that it has literally become our go-to breakfast for busy mornings. Sometimes we even make it over the weekend so that we can relish it peacefully with a hot cup of coffee.

CAN WE MAKE IT VEGAN?
Yes. Of course.
You can substitute the feta cheese with vegan feta cheese or if you don’t get it, just skip adding it.

You can even make this sandwich using un-toasted bread.
Avocado is a major dietary source of antioxidants. The total carotenoid concentrations are found to be greatest in the dark green fresh close to the peel. Avocados can help improve your cholesterol. Eating avocados with other veggies help in the better absorption of certain nutrients (carotenoids) of those veggies. For that, you don’t even need to use the full avocado. Just add half an avocado and you get an almost similar effect in terms of absorption of nutrients.
Avocado consumption is associated with better diet quality and nutrient intake and lower metabolic syndrome risk (high blood glucose, hypertension, obesity that leads to type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases) (Source: nutritionfacts.org) Avocado is mostly water (about 80%) and dietary fiber. Spreading avocado on your toast would be better than spreading butter or mayonnaise. It is natural and nutrition-dense. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, fat, carbohydrates, and protein. They do contain a lot of calories but you have to remember to eat them moderately. If not consumed moderately, even cashew can make you fat.
When ripe, consume it in a day or two. If it is ripe and you are not consuming it, it is better to put it in the refrigerator. If you cut the avocado, put it in an air-tight container, it would last a couple of days in the refrigerator. Don’t put a raw avocado in the refrigerator. It won’t ripe.
You can tell this from their skin color or the color of the peel. If it is green in color, it is not ripe and pulpy. It will be hard. Look for the avocados that are dark in color. The skin gets dark when it is ripe. But just looking at them is not enough. Press them gently and see how hard or soft they are and buy depending on when you are going to consume them. If they feel soft, they are ripe and need to be consumed in a day or two. Don’t buy overripe avocados, they go bad overnight and you don’t want that since they are expensive. Overripe avocados are very dark in color, close to black.
The best way to ripen an avocado is to let it happen naturally. Put it on a sunny spot or on a warm spot on your kitchen counter. Leave it for a couple of days and it will be ripe. The number of days for ripening depends on how ripe it was when you bought it. So keep checking every day. You don’t want it to go bad since they are expensive.
