To begin, prepare your ingredients by grating beetroot, slicing cucumber and tomato into thin slices. Ayeh prefers to use Persian or Lebanese cucumbers as they’re less watery and crisp. 

Next, smash your avocado, make sure to season after smashing. ‘It’s so nice and creamy and replaces the need to add a sauce, butter or mayonnaise’, says Ayeh.

Then, choose the bread you desire and toast it, Ayeh uses wholegrain sourdough as it’s high in protein and her favorite.

Now you’re ready to assemble, spread hummus generously to one slice of bread, then layer with cucumber, tomato and season. 

Finally add alfa sprouts, grated beetroot, lettuce and spread on that smashed avocado to the other slice of bread, slice down the middle and you’re done.    

‘Trust me when I say, you don’t need to be vegan to love this easy Vegan Sandwich’, says Ayeh.

  • Potatoes (either white, Maris Piper, Russet, Yukon Gold or Sebago)
  • Olive oil
  • Baking soda
  • Rosemary 
  • Salt and pepper to season 

METHOD

1. Wash and cut potatoes into similar size chunks (around one inch).

2. Pre-heat oven to 230 degrees Celsius or 450 degrees Farenheit and parboil potatoes with sea salt and baking soda added to the water.

3. When potatoes are fork tender, drain through a colander and give it a shake to roughen the edges.

4. Add some olive oil to an oven dish. Add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Give it a shake, so the potatoes are coated with the oil and seasoning, then put into the oven.

5. Grate garlic cloves in a small ramekin. Add olive oil and mix together with a rosemary sprig. Leave the rosemary tip in the ramekin to infuse the oil.

6. After 30-40 minutes, remove potatoes from the oven and shake around. Using the rosemary sprig, brush on the garlic oil over the potatoes.

7. Tear over the rosemary leaves and place them back in the oven for 20 -30 minutes (depending on oven strength) until they are nice and crispy.
