Where’s My Tortilla Today? Sandwich City Sweetheart!


Yes, sometimes I just want a sandwich.  It’s true that you shouldn’t food shop when you are hungry.  That’s how I ended up buying a loaf of bread last night.  I know!  I do the tortillas as a way to still have something bread-like without all the bread.  It’s been a while since I’ve had bread so I figure in the spirit of moderation, it’s a good thing once in a while.

Bonus points for anyone who can tell me from where I borrowed/modified the  second part of this post title (quote)!

As an added bonus, and because this sandwich is just so darned pretty, I took extra photos during the layering process. Enjoy!

Kale, fabulous kale, my secret no-salt seasoning and Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde.  Now stop reading blogs and go eat something healthy!

Healthy Hypocrite Tip:  One of the ingredients in my secret no-salt seasoning is turmeric.   Please click here for info on turmeric.  I put this into most of my dishes.  Usually a small amount that won’t affect the flavor too much.  It adds up though!

Bonus Healthy Hypocrite Tip:  Notice how I put the pepitas and olives on the hummus and avocado?  I do that so they have something to stick to that will keep them from falling out of the sandwich.
