Tuna And Avocado Sandwiches

 I have my new found love for avocados, I discovered these sandwich recipes of replacing mayonnaise  with Avocados and it was an instant hit with the boys.
I have become addicted to Pinterest. Its such a fun app and I love browsing around for ideas and its where I came across this recipe.
 I have made this a couple of times and am now getting ready to have this a few more often for dinner during the upcoming hot days.

Recipe : Tuna and Avocado Sandwich ( recipe adapted from various tuna and avocado recipes discovered in Pinterest.)

1 can tuna, drained and flaked
2 spring onions, finely chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped (optional)
1 ripe avocado
1/2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
juice of 1/2 lime
salt and tiny pinch pepper
brown, wholemeal or seed bread to serve

Halve the avocado and remove the seed ( check here on how to remove seed). Place the flesh , can easily scoop it with a spoon, into a mixing bowl and mash well with a fork. Add flaked tuna, and mix well. Stir in spring onions, chilli, coriander and lime juice and add salt to taste and pinch of pepper.

Slice your bread , spread with generous spoonfuls of the mix and sandwich together with another slice of bread (duh!) and enjoy.

  8. Avocado is quite the staple in my house! My children love guacamole and I love to smash an avocado all over toast, top with sliced tomatoes, drizzle lemon juice and olive oil...that's breakfast!
    This is a great idea to replace Mayo with avocado!

  9. Glad it was a hit with your boys. My son would not eat avocado.
