Green Things Sandwich

Whole shebang

Looks like Salad Monday has became Sandwich Monday.

Ok so I saw this sandwich on Shutterbean and had some version of a meltdown because it looked SO amazing that I knew I had to have it.

But I have to tell you, this recipe, calls for goat cheese.

I don’t know if you know this but goat cheese is freaking expensive.

Like a tiny amount cost me SGD13.

I don’t know about you but SGD13 is a lot of money.

I mean I could buy like a salad in a mall for that money.

Or watch one movie on the weekend.

Ok. Clearly living in Singapore is not exactly a value-for-money type situation.

Serves 1 hungry girl

Cilantro Hummus
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1/2 cup cilantro, stems removed
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper, to taste

Other things
2 pieces of bread
2 Tbsps of Cilantro Hummus
1/2 avocado, sliced
dollop of goat cheese – up to personal preference
handful of mixed salad

Cilantro Hummus
Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor.

Seriously. It’s that easy.

Assembling the sandwich
Toast the bread to your level of toastiness.

Spread one side of bread with the Cilantro Hummus.

Top with the sliced avocado.

Top that with the goat cheese.

Top that, carefully, with the mixed salad.

Top with the second half of bread.

Bite, enjoy, savor.

It’s a fancy sammich.

*Disclaimer: I ate this with a boiled egg because let’s face it. Ain’t nobody got time to be vegan.

Otak Toast Set (SGD8.50)

What: Whimsical cafe that serves toast. REALLY thick toast.

Pros: Great service (earnest and helpful), cute/colorful decor and reasonable prices.

Cons: The food is okay – despite trying to be innovative (Otak toast, Toast set – that you get to actually toast at your table, in toasters you personally choose) I just felt that taste-wise it was a little underwhelming.

Verdict: I can’t recommend it because it just wasn’t that good. Maybe if the  toast wasn’t as thick? Haha.
