Almo-Cado Sandwiches

Almo-Cado Sandwiches Recipe

By Veegs


6 ounces (170 g) raw beet, peeled and grated or shredded (see Note)

1 tablespoon (15 ml) seasoned rice vinegar

2 teaspoons fresh orange juice

1 small clove garlic, pressed

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 medium-size ripe avocado, halved, pitted, and peeled

1 tablespoon (15 ml) orange Muscat champagne vinegar or fresh lemon juice

1 ⁄3 cup (80 g) toasted, crunchy, salted almond butter

4 large slices whole-grain bread

½ cup (13 g) micro greens or (20 g) packed fresh herb salad mix

½ cup (17 g) onion sprouts or any spicy sprouts


1Squeeze the liquid out of the grated beets if needed. This step should not be necessary if you are shredding the beets. In a medium-size bowl, combine the beets with the vinegar, orange juice, and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste.

2Cut the avocado into thin slices and gently rub the slices with the Muscat vinegar to boost the flavour and prevent browning.

3To assemble the Sandwiches, spread 1 1/2 tablespoons (24 g) almond butter on each slice of bread, or enough to cover the entire surface of the slices. Lightly drop some of the micro greens and sprouts on two slices, keeping a little aside. Arrange half of the grated beets on top, along with half of the sliced avocado and the remaining micro greens and sprouts. Add a little extra salt and pepper, if desired. Top with the other almond-buttered slice of bread.

4Recipe Notes: The finer you grate the beets, the more liquid will be released, making it so you will have to squeeze the grated beets before adding them to the sandwich to avoid sogginess. Shredding them a bit thicker eliminates this step, so take your pick depending on the texture you prefer.

5Enjoy this sandwich with a side of crispy sweet potato chips to make it an even more special treat.

6If your bread is on the soft side, lightly toast it before assembling the sandwich; it will be all the better for it.

7Choose a type of bread that has some character and texture to it (with seeds and nuts, perhaps), and avoid plain sandwich bread.
