Every now and again, I love to spend my Sunday doing nothing. I may not feel like going out, or to start cooking anything big – so here is one brilliant idea for a simple and tasty Sunday afternoon (or any other afternoon) sandwiches.
All you need is a couple of mugs for bubbles, one of two good friends and some space for al-fresco lunch. And the following ingredients.
Here comes an easy to follow recipe for two of my current favourites. Toasted sourdough sandwiches piled high with delicious fresh flavours.
Cream cheese, cucumber, smoked salmon and dill. Quinoa, avocado, mint and feta cheese.
To serve two or three (double/triple as needed) you’ll need; a big loaf of sourdough.
Cut into generous slices.
For the quinoa topping, prepare some nutty quinoa and cool.
Chop up your veggies – a handful of cherry tomatoes, one avocado, half a cucumber and couple of sprigs of spring onions, and a big bunch of fresh mint. Crumble a bowl of feta cheese.
Toss everything with your quinoa. Sprinkle with some flaked sea salt and black pepper. Add a generous amount of good olive oil.
Pile over your toasted sourdough.
Add a little extra olive oil. Easy. Done.
For your smoked salmon sandwich, you’ll need to smear your toast with a generous layer of cream cheese. Top with thin slices of cucumber, smoked salmon, a squeeze of lemon & a few sprinkles of dill.
To wash it down, and to make your afternoon feel little more glamorous, fill your glass with prosecco or champagne. This one is made sweet with a splash of St-Germain elderflower liqueur. Add a sprig of lavender from your garden to make it prettier.
Often the best things are really simple.
