This week I am sharing with you my no1 favourite lunch. It is not only healthy, nutritious and delicious but insanely quick and easy to prepare as well. There are only a few ingredients encountered in this Salmon on Rye Sandwich, so there is no reason why you shouldn't have the time to prepare it. I promise that you won't be disappointed. On the contrary in fact. I believe that you will be amazed about how such simple food can be so tasty. I've had it for lunch three times already this week, but that is only because I am currently addicted. You can obviously have this Smoked Salmon on Rye Sandwich for dinner as well. Perfect for when you come home late and want something to eat as quick as possible. This will keep you off the frozen dinners or not so healthy (to put it nicely) take-aways.
Smoked Salmon on Rye
2-3 slices/about 50g smoked salmon
2 slices rye bread (proper german no wheat "vollkorn")
red onion, thinly sliced
big handful pea shoots, rocket or fresh spinach
Toast the rye bread on high so it almost gets a bit crunchy. Top with the smoked salmon and thinly sliced red onion and finish off with fresh salad on the side. Serves 1
HEALTH BENEFITS of Rye: If you haven't tried rye yet it is about time that you do. You most probably eat wheat in any form each day so it would only benefit your health if some of that is exchanged to rye or any other grain for that matter. Rye is more nutrient dense and contains less gluten then wheat. Less gluten means easier digestion which in turn means that the food is less likely to stay for a long time in your body and cause weight gain, discomfort, tiredness and so on.
