Sarnies that Zing: Beetroot, Egg and Mixed Leaves

The usually deep-red roots of beetroot are eat...

Always looking for new ways to eat the same old thing, I came up with this sandwich on the weekend:

  • boil an egg
  • grate 1/2 a small raw beetroot
  • chop up a handful of mixed leaves.  The veggie box salad mix this week was especially zingy: a mix of rocket, watercress, what looked like a young broccoli shoot – complete with a tiny piece of young broccoli, romaine, young beet root…those are the ones I recognized. 
  • mix all together in a bowl with some mayonnaise and pinch of dry mustard, salt and pepper, and a slice of onion (finely chopped)

  • slather the mix on a slice of wholewheat bread, stack another slice on top and slather the remaining mix on that, then add a third slice of bread.
  • Cut in quarters and eat.  Yummy and filling.

You can of course use any kind of bread.  You could stuff it into a submarine bun, or pita bread, or roll it up in a wrap – of if you are on a total bread fast, you could have it with rice or pasta as a salad.


Life is an amazing journey.

  • Three Sisters Chili 
    This chilli was a big suprise! I’d never had a squash chili, though after reading recipes with squash and beans, and looking at mouth-watering pictures, I had to try it. The result is a slightly nutty, almost parmesan taste! Ingredients…Read more ›
