Recipe Notes

  • There are a lot of great varieties of whole wheat bread out there that would also work well for this recipe.
  • You'll want to be sure to seek out breads that are made with whole wheat as the first ingredient (wheat flour and enriched wheat flour are not whole wheat!). You'll also want to avoid any breads containing high fructose corn syrup, as well as any ingredients that are man made and hard to pronounce.
  • Sprouts are becoming more and more popular, and are typically located in the refrigerated section near the fresh herbs, bagged salads, and dressings.

    You can also grow your own sprouts at home! Here's a great how-to guide that'll have you sprouting in no time.

  • Instead of making your chive & onion spread from scratch, you can purchase a whipped chive cream cheese spread at your local grocery store, near the cream cheese.

    You can also save some time by slicing your avocado onto your sandwich, rather than mashing it.

  • Because this sandwich is filled with fresh produce, you probably won't want to make it more than a day ahead of time.
  • For maximum flavor, you'll want to mix the avocado with 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice and salt to taste. The lemon juice will help prevent the avocado from browning as quickly.
  • Romaine lettuce, baby chard, or baby kale leaves would also work great in place of spinach!
