    Super Sandwich Fillings

    Spreads or ingredients to make super sandwiches, be they on bread or in pita bread or in a roll. I've included here recipes such as my Salmon Loaf With Cucumber Sauce Salmon Loaf With Cucumber Sauce, which - minus the sauce - is absloutely delicious for lunch next day in a sandwich with baby spinach leaves or freshly sliced cucumber.

    Apparently the high nutritional value of avocados was well known by the Aztecs and the Incas. In the twenty-first century, it’s often what we put with avocado that makes our recipes somewhat less than healthy. This is a super-healthy avocado dip - with tofu, cider vinegar, yoghurt and spring onions – which loses none of the appeal of an avocado dip although it is packed with ingredients so healthy that even your cardiologist will be asking you for the recipe! Serve with crisp raw vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower florets and sticks of celery, carrots and zucchini. Or, if you feel that the dip is healthy enough to make some small dietary sins permissible, serve with your favourite crackers. Adapted from the website.

    Recipe #116794

    A delicious, unusual and low-fat filling for an at-home - or a to-take-to-work - sandwich. If taking the sandwich to work, I recommend taking the filling in a separate container and assembling the sandwich just before you eat it. I found this recipe in the 'Australian Women's Weekly's 'SLIM: low-fat eating for life', and I'm posting it for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge. I'm looking to fillings like this now rather than cheese, which I'd just l-o-v-e to eat all the time! For a really healthy bread, I recommend soy and linseed bread or a wholegrain bread. This may be higher in calories but it's a lower GI so it will sustain you for much longer.

    Recipe #146466

    A delicious mushroom paté that I've adapted from a recipe I found on an English website. Posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #139726

    A flavoursome appetiser or entrée dish which (except for the toast which you may want to make at the time) can be completely made ahead of time, this paté can also be served with other patés, dips and warm pita bread as part of any Mediterranean-style meal. This recipe can be made with butter beans, haricot beans or chickpeas instead of the cannellini beans used here. Because the recipe uses two cans of beans, you may like to use two different beans. This recipe has been adapted from a recipe on an International Masters '1001 recipes for pan or wok' recipe card.

    Recipe #138289

    I have not yet tried this recipe but I just love the sound of it from the ingredients: lentils and nut butter and mushrooms! It sounds both nutritious and delicious! For some extra crunch, I'd be inclined to add some finely chopped nuts. I found this recipe on an English website and I am posting it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #139734

    A Scandinavian-style paté, attributed to Clare Ferguson, which I found on Huey's website, and have adapted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. Huey (Iain Hewitson) is a well-known Australian chef whose popular cooking show appears on TV twice each weekday. He is also the author of several cookbooks and runs Tolarno's restaurant in Melbourne. This recipe provides entree-size portions for two.

    Recipe #137447

    Greek chef and restaurateur Theodore Kyriakou (widely considered to be the finest Greek chef in Britain) says of this recipe: "This dish is best made with the strongly flavoured salted anchovy fillets (be sure to rinse them well), but the anchovies from tins or jars will do as well. You can either use a food processor or pound everything with a pestle and mortar. This paste will keep for several weeks in the fridge and is served on biscuits or bread." This recipe is from his book ‘real greek food’, which he co-authored with food writer Charles Campion. It's obviously a recipe for those who love anchovies! I'm posting it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #142233

    Did you know that for the ancient Egyptians, beans were seen as a symbol of reincarnation and that they represented the rebirth of spring each year? I found this fabulous recipe for a Moroccan broad bean dip in the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living'. It was part of an article on peas and beans. The 'cooking time' specified below does not include the 20 minutes cooling time in the refrigerator, necessary for allowing the flavours to blend. When I made this, I used frozen broad beans, thawed; they were baby beans so they didn't need peeling; and I used cumin because I haven't yet tracked down any ras el hanout. I also used 4 cloves of garlic - which is what I've included here in the ingredients; the original recipe had 1 clove of garlic.

    Recipe #135158

    Described in Theodore Kyriakou and Charles Campion's 'Real Greek Food' as "a simple but satisfyingly pungent Greek "super-aioli" which goes well as a relish with rich food", this dish is also extremely popular as one of several mezze plates. I've included the optional ground almonds in this recipe, which according to Kyriakou and Campion is "how they do it near the lake of Ioaninna, where freshwater crayfish with almond skordalia is a local specialty". The almonds is certainly one element of this version of Skordalia which makes it - I was delighted to find - even more delicious than Skordalia I've eaten in restaurants. I've posted this recipe here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #141630

    Another elegant traditional English sandwich served with Cucumber Sandwiches and Egg and Cress Sandwiches for an English high tea or supper. Or these days, on numerous occasions! The watercress butter that is part of this recipe can be made in advance and frozen. I found this recipe on an English website and have posted it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #139696

    Only three main ingredients! Recipes really can't get much simpler! And there are times when such recipes come in handy! I haven't made this one yet. I found it in the October 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Delicious' and I have adapted it for posting for the 2005 Zaar World Tour, as both an Australian (and in view of its combining of lemon juice and cumin) and as a Middle Eastern recipe. My recommendation would be to make this recipe when sweet baby carrots are available. Depending on the size and juiciness of your carrots, you may need to use slightly more or slightly less lemon juice: use your culinary discretion! If the carrots are really juicy, mop up some of the juiciness with paper towels so that you can still add a generous amount of lemon juice. Again, use your culinary discretion! Preparation and cooking times will vary, depending on the choices you make with ingredients and the way you choose to cook the carrots. My estimated preparation and cooking times are based on the option of using baby carrots and boiling them in salt water: the fastest of the alternatives. Personally, if time permits, I'd recommend baking the carrots, brushed with a little olive oil, in the oven.

    Recipe #139963

    A healthier, lower in fat version of Welsh Rarebit which I found on an English website and which I am posting here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. This healthier C21st version of the traditional Welsh Rarebit uses less cheese and - something which will no doubt horrify culinary conservatives - includes some vegetables. Next step is hoping that your children like it. Perhaps the name could lure them? Not the Low Fat bit! Don't mention that! For children, you may also want to omit the cayenne pepper. Perhaps substituting it with a herb which you know is acceptable to them. I was glad to see that this recipe did not use low-fat cheese. Though I make every effort to reduce the content of fat in most of the things I cook, I've concluded that I'd rather omit cheese than use low-fat cheese. To me, it's completely tasteless.

    Recipe #139732

    There doesn't seem to be any clear answer as to just why this dish has been so-named, and there are actually many different regional variations 'Irish Rarebit', 'Scottish Rarebit' etc... But Welsh Rarebit is certainly the best-known of the rarebits. This particular version uses multigrain bread rolls. Not traditional but it reflects our 2005 tastes, our C21st desire to make what we eat richer in fibre and healthier! I have posted my adaptation of this recipe, which I found in the Spring 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Recipes' for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #139663

    I just LOVE trying different vegetable burger recipes. They are all just slightly different. This is one I've adapted from a recent edition of the Australian magazine 'Women's Day'. This is a recipe which offers the scope for varying the ingredients to suit individual tastes.

    Recipe #134879

    For those who like sardines, a flavoursome paté really different from other patés you are probably more familiar with. And it's quick and easy to make, low in calories and full of all those good-for-you oils we all should be eating more of. I've always enjoyed sardines on toast as a simple breakfast or snack, but until a few years ago it had never occurred to me that some people evidently loathe the smell of sardines. Then, on two occasions - forever etched in my memory - when I had sardines on crispbreads for lunch, a co-worker asked if I minded if she opened the window. She didn't wait for a reply: by the time the question was out, the window was open. Wide open! With THAT experience in mind, this is obviously a paté for those who LOVE sardines: NOT for those who feel compelled to open windows when in the presence of a sardine!

    Recipe #120295

    Quintessentially English high tea sandwiches - just how Oscar Wilde's Lady Bracknell would have had them served. Cucumber sandwiches are one of England's most traditional tea sandwiches, thinly sliced cucumber on good buttered bread. The crusts are always removed. I found this recipe on an English website and have posted it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. The ingredients and directions have made concessions to what is now available - such as seedless cucumbers. A delicious really low fat sandwich!

    Recipe #139691

    Cucumber Sandwiches and Egg and Cress Sandwiches: traditional English afternoon tea fare at its absolute best! The mayonnaise in the filling means that there is no need to butter the bread. I have posted this recipe, found on an English website, for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. As a child, I absolutely loved these. Posting this really low fat recipe for the tour has reminded me of these delicious sandwich, and inspired me to make them again soon!

    Recipe #139693

    A tasty and nutritious spinach and artichoke dip, adapted from Jan Stephens’ 'Vegetarian for Everyone'. This dip also makes a great spread in a sandwich or whisked through mashed potatoes instead of butter or cream. NOTE: Since Charms1221's review, I've made this recipe again, and I've made a few changes. Basically, I've reduced the eggs to two, increased the garlic and yoghurt and added marinated artichokes. If you like your food spicy (I don't), add some red chilli flakes.

    Recipe #117138

    Chickpeas processed with roasted nuts, lemon juice and fresh chopped coriander is yet another variation on a hummus dip. Like most people I just love hummus - in any form! So I really love trying any variation I come across. This one, I can promise, is quite different from others: for me it certainly passes the scrumptiousness test! Like other dips, it can obviously also be used as a spread on sandwiches. I cannot remember now just where I got this recipe from, but from the way I had it filed in Word, it was obviously from a website, possibly the Edgell website, as it specified that Edgell Chick Peas be used.

    Recipe #117139

    A tasty salmon loaf served with a warm cucumber sauce. Serve it with salad or vegetable dishes. What's leftover is delicious for lunch next day in a sandwich with baby spinach leaves or freshly sliced cucumber. Adapted from a recipe I've had in my files for years. I don't now remember where I found the original recipe. See my notes below for suggestions for additional ingredients.
