Heirloom Avocado Bagelwiches.
Otherwise known as, the lunch that I am LIVING for right now.
This avocado tomato sandwich has been the best lunch ever this summer. I mean, this avocado tomato BAGELWICH.
That’s important. The distinction is important. Avocado tomato sandwich = avocado heirloom bagelwich.
A bagelwich just SOUNDS better than a sandwich because it sounds different. New. Maybe fancy. Not as normal. Not as boring!
I struggle with lunch the most. The most!
I don’t know. I mean, clearly I have tons of options and things that I know how to make. And I love a lot of lunch “meals” too. Things like tuna and egg salad and anything with avocado. Love eating fried eggs for lunch, I love making salads, I love overnight oats or chia pudding and I even love eating leftovers.
But for some reason, when it actually COMES time for lunch, I’m just clueless. I have no idea what to eat. And on Sundays, even when I think about prepping lunch ideas, I get stumped on what to prep.
Basically, yes, the question is why do I even have a blog. I’m not sure.
But here we are and I’m telling you about this because you have to make it for lunch. We probably have a good six weeks left of perfect tomatoes, so it’s necessary.
Plus, the level of deliciousness here is off the charts.
Here’s what we’ve got!
First up, everything bagels. You can totally make your own or… just buy them! Whatever works.
Next up, a veggie cream cheese spread. I’m currently obsessed with the kite hill chive spread. You could use that, you could make your own veggie cream cheese like I have in the past, or just use plain old cream cheese. SO GOOD.
Then, sliced ripe heirloom tomatoes. Juicy ones from the garden! Sprinkle them with smoked sea salt. Trust me.
Slice avocado too. You could also mash it, but (this probably sounds weird) I like a touch of texture with my avocado. Yes I know. I know. That doesn’t even make sense. But when it’s sliced, it’s more bite-able than mashed avocado! Swear.
Add some smoked sea salt on that too. For sure.
Sprinkle that whole mess with some garden chives and maybe a little basil.
Add a few microgreens on top! I like the spicy microgreens.
Sandwich it together and live your best life.
Now our lunch problems for the day are solved!
Spread the cream cheese on one or both sides of the bagel. Add the tomatoes on one side and the avocado on the other. Sprinkle both with smoked salt, the chives and then drizzle with olive oil. Add the microgreens on top, then sandwich the bagel together. YUM.
Maybe chips on the side too. Or chips ON the sandwich!
