Low Cal Wednesday


Here is a quick colorful and cool dinner or lunch any day of the week. In about 10 minutes you can make these great gourmet looking sandwiches and still keep the house cool. I found the richest looking bun I could find. I am sure you could even make your own. The raspberry chipotle added just the right kick of flavor and sweetness. I will continue to make these sandwich again and again. This recipe serves four. At 395 Calories. Grilled Avocado and Tomato Sandwiches with Raspberry Chipotle Mayo

4 onion rolls
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large tomato, sliced
2 avocados, halved, pitted and peeled
1/2 medium red onion cut into slices 1/2 thick
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon raspberry chipotle
4 slices provolone or Parmesan cheese

Preheat grill to medium heat. Slice bread section in half lengthwise. Brush cut sides with oil. Grill bread, cut side down, 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly toasted.

Brush tomato slices, avocado halves, and onion slices with oil; season with salt and pepper to taste. Place onion on grill; grill 8 to 10 minutes or until softened. Grill tomato slices and avocado halves 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, in small bowl combine mayonnaise and raspberry chipotle. Set aside.

Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on each cut side of bread. Slice the avocado and place slices on bottom halves of bread. Top with slices of onion tomato and cheese. Cover with top halves of bread and serve.
