Lazy Turkey Avocado Sandwich with Rosemary Olive Tomato Puree


Since most nights I don’t get home from work until 6:30/7:00 pm, I usually try making my dinners the night before for the next day.  However, there are also nights that I am too beat, or lazy to be prepping dinner at 9:30pm.  I rather be blogging, reading, or watching some television.

Here is what happens when you come home tired and need to feed your family rather quickly.

Ariana loves avocados and olives and Anabelle loves Turkey sandwiches and when I combine the ingredients together, it becomes a nice healthy sandwich in just 10 minutes.

The tomato puree that I used was just a lazy sandwich making method.  Instead of having too many toppings on the sandwich, I decided to combine the ingredients that I wanted in a sandwich and make it into a puree… so instead of slicing tomatoes, etc… it became part of the puree.  I actually did not even use a food processor…. just used my hands to squeeze out the pulp from the tomato. But I would not recommend you to do this if you’re serving guests.

    I really like this sandwich idea! I usually get stuck eating the same old chicken sandwiches when I’m in a hurry–it’s great to have another option, especially such a yummy one!

    Yum. I love avocados with pretty much anything, but turkey is a good combo as well. I miss turkey and avocado sandwiches, thanks for the reminder. 🙂

    I would be happy to eat this sandwich for dinner any nite of the week! Turkey and avocado is a great combo, very satisfying, and love the idea of the tomato puree – this would stop the sandwich sides from sliding around so much! Cheers, Michelle
