Kabocha Squash and Avocado Sandwich
4 slices bread
1 cup steamed and sliced Kabocha squash (or any hard, winter squash will do)
1 cup spinach (substitute for lettuce or cucumber if you like)
1/2 of a large avocado
1/4 cup or less crumbled bleu cheese
1-2 TBL olive oil
Steam the squash and slice into 1/2 inch pieces. I did a big batch the night before, which will keep in the fridge for about a week. Toast bread in a pan with the olive oil (or in a toaster if you don’t want to bother). Mash the avocado in a bowl with a little salt and pepper. Stack slices of squash on toasted bread, then stack with raw spinach. On the other slice, spread some of the avo mash, then sprinkle some bleu cheese slices on top. Put the two sides together and yum, you got a great veggie sandwich even meat lovers will enjoy.
