Avocado Cilantro Sandwich Spread
Spice up bagels or rice cakes for a party platter or use this spread on a veggie burger sandwich. For meat eaters — the possibilities are even wider — the rich avocado flavor paired with a muenster cheese, smoked turkey slices — and, if you dare, bacon — make for a very pleasing gourmet sandwich.
Some people say they avoid avocados because of their high fat content — but they are actually considered somewhat of a super food, dense in nutrients and phytochemicals. Just one avocado contains approximately 1/3 of the daily requirement of vitamin K and folate, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin C — and twice the potassium of a banana. They are also rich in vitamin E, niacin, and riboflavin.
Much healthier than the fat you’d get in a mayonnaise sandwich spread. When worrying about fat, always analyze the cost benefits. 🙂
