Sandwiching

April 19, 2011

I love tortas. Avocadoes, tomatoes, onions, beans, greens and delicious bread. It’s some kind of bastardization of tradition, but it works. Take what you’d normally see in a burrito, but put it on white bread. Comfort, spiciness, savoriness, deliciousness and textural contrasts. What more could one ask? We made ours with drunken refried beans, sauteed spinach and artichokes, garlic and onions, avocado, tomato, scallions, Daiya cheese and Ciabatta bread. We should have these more often.

Spring has teased us with warm weather and light harvests. We bought some wonderful watermelon radishes and paired them with lettuce, pickles, Hungry Ghost bread and broccoli salad. This is lunch to me — an invigorating, seasonal, fairly healthy and tasty small feast and small victory. I love sandwiches and sandwich making.
