Tom-Yum Tuna Sandwich

This afternoon while going through my fridge,I found some cans of tuna. I was hungry so I decided to have some tuna sandwich. It’s really simple and absolutely yummy!!

1 can of plain tuna
1 can of tom-yum tuna
2 tomatoes
1/2 onion
1-2 green chilies
few slices of bread

We need to chop up a bit some of the ingredients before mixing them in the blender. You can start with the cabbage by finely chopping it and then just leave it to soak in some hot water. When the cabbage starts to turn slightly greener than before, drain the water and sprinkle a pinch of salt, mix well.

Once you’re done with the cabbage, you can start dicing the onion, tomatoes and chilly into chunks. After chopping them put them in the blender along with a pinch of salt, some pepper, 1 can of plain tuna and 1 can of tom yum tuna. Then add ample amount of mayonnaise so that the mixture is not dry. Start the blender at a low-speed at first then increase the speed later on. Make sure that all the ingredients are mixed really well. It doesn’t need to be absolutely smooth but everything must be finely chopped. This might take up to 2 minutes.

Now you’re tuna spread is ready. Take two slice of bread and spread the mixture on both the slices. On one of the slice place some cabbage and sprinkle some pepper on it. Sandwich together and enjoy your tom-yum tuna sandwich.

Refreshing Avocado Soup

Avocados can be used as substitute for meats in sandwiches and salads because of its high fat content(mostly monounsaturated fat). Some studies have also shown that it helps to lower blood cholesterol levels. Few weeks ago I had found out a recipe for making avocado soup somewhere while surfing the net. This refreshing avocado soup helps to beat this summer heat a bit and of course its healthy too. It’s really simple and requires no cooking at all because we basically mix everything in a blender until smooth. the ingredients required for this soup can be easily bought anywhere in the grocery stores.

1 cucumber
1-2 avocado
2 green onions
1/4 cup of fresh mint
1/2 cup yogurt
1 1/2 cups of water

Since this soup requires no cooking, basically we are just going to mix all the ingredients in the blender. But before blending them, first we need to chop them.

We can start with the cucumber by dicing 1/3 of the cucumber and chopping into chunks the rest of it. These chunks are going to be put in the blender and we’re going to use the diced one to garnish our soup.Unlike the cucumber the other ingredients (mint, onion and avocado) just needs to be chopped. We just need to chop them a bit, that will be enough. After finishing chopping all the ingredients, now we need to put them in the blender.

Now the next step would be adding the water and yogurt. First measure 1/2 cup of yogurt and 1 1/2 cups of cold water and pour into the blender and start mixing all the ingredients. At the beginning, put the blender on low-speed and later increase its speed. We need to make sure that everything gets totally chopped up and then made absolutely smooth. This might take up to 2-3 minutes.

Now the soup is ready and don’t forget to garnish it with the diced cucumbers just before serving. We can have it right away or we can also chill it in the fridge for up to 3 hours before serving. This soup has a very beautiful color along with its many health benefits.
