Prosciutto and Guacamole Sandwich

12 Jun

Two slices of sourdough bread with prosciutto and guacamole in between.

The following recipes makes four sandwiches.
  • 8 slices of bread, toasted (I used sourdough)
  • 8 slices of prosciutto
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and cut into rough cubes
  • 1 medium tomato, roughly cut
  • juice of 1 lime
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

The ingredients in the guacamole are avocados, tomatoes and lime juice. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

Add to a bowl the avocados and lime juice. Mash the avocados. Add in the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. This is the guacamole that will go into the sandwich.

Slices of sourdough bread topped with prosciutto and avocados mixed with lime juice and tomatoes.

To assemble the sandwich, place two slices of prosciutto onto one slice of bread. Add a generous scope of the guacamole on top of the prosciutto and spread it around. Top with another slice of bread. Cut the sandwich in half and now you have made the first sandwich. Repeat three more times.

Beef Fajita with Pico de Gallo, Guacamole and Yogurt

Below is a recipe for beef fajitas with homemade pico de gallo (similar to salsa but with a more light and refreshing taste) and guacamole. Thank you to Andrew for sharing his recipe.

We begin with the recipe for pico de gallo.

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo
  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • 1/4 of an onion, finely chopped
  • 1 japaleño, finely chopped (for less heat, remove seeds)
  • 2 tbsps of white vinegar
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 2 tbsps of extra virgin olive oil
  • a pinch of sea salt

Cut the tomatoes in half and squeeze out the juice and seeds. Save the juice and seeds in a bowl and use when making the stir fry beef (see below). Finely chop the tomatoes.  Place tomatoes and remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Guacamole

Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 2 tbsps of milk
  • a pinch of sea salt

In a bowl, mash the avocados into your desired consistency, then add in the lime juice, milk and sea salt.  Mix well and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Stir Fry Beef

Stir Fry Beef

  • 1lb of striploin beef, thinly sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced into thick juliennes
  • 1 small onion, sliced into thick juliennes
  • salt, pepper and paprika to taste
  • 2 tbsps of extra virgin olive oil
  • juice and seed of three tomatoes (from pico de gallo)

Heat on high a large skillet. Once the skillet is hot, add in the oil and onions. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the onion begins to soften and then add in the beef and seasoning. Stir occasionally until the beef is cooked through. Add in the green peppers and tomato juice.  Cook for another 3 minutes or until the peppers are soft.


Assembly

  • six (whole wheat) tortillas
  • yogurt or sour cream

Warm tortillas in a pan for about 30 seconds.  Do not over cook otherwise the tortillas will become dry.  Place a tortilla open on a plate.  In the center of the tortilla, add two large spoonfuls of the beef stir fry and one large spoonful each of the pico de gallo, guacamole and yogurt. Roll up the tortilla and tuck the sides underneath. This recipe makes six fajitas.
