Avocado carrot sandwich 10 minutes

Because i made a fresh loaf of black bread the other day it only made sense to make another recipe with it so i made a delicious spicy and lime-infused carrot and avocado sandwich.

Before I started to make this I was just thinking from a colour perspective i knew I wanted some orange in it and i had just purchased a fresh bag of carrots that same morning. I wanted layering colours so then i opted for avocado. A lot of times when i'm planning recipes I just think of what colours i want present and then try and find foods that fit only then do i start thinking about flavourings.

I wanted something spicy and i love the lime/avocado mix so that's how it started. Planning recipes according to colour is important it creates more variety in your meal. The colours don't always have to contrast each other i wouldnt mind having an all-green sandwich (future recipe maybe? ).

It really depends how i feel i wouldnt mind having an all-green sandwich (future recipe maybe? ).

It really depends how i feel and now since the leaves are starting to turn bright orange and red colours I like to have warm colours present in my meals.
