Low Fat Lunch Recipe #3

Vegetable Cheese Sandwich

Vegetable Cheese Sandwich

This is another delicious low fat lunch recipe you can have for lunch... or for a quick dinner. You decide.

"Where is the meat?" you ask.... Well, as the title implies, this is a vegetarian sandwich... a totally allien concept for me a couple of years ago.

But it is a great recipe for a change. I mean, the typical ham and cheese sandwich can get boring... even if you change it to salami and cheese sandwich... Boring!

With this low fat lunch recipe you give your taste buds a treat of flavours from the yogurt, mayo, chutney, lime juice, honey, and curry powder. What a nice combination!

This is a very straight forward recipe to prepare, but you still need cooking a few ingredients. Enjoy!


Ingredients:

1/2 cup low fat yogurt

2 Tbsp low fat mayonnaise

1 Tbsp mango chutney

2 tsp lime juice

1 tsp honey

1/4 tsp curry powder (you can put less if you don't like it too spicy)

2 tsp olive oil

1 red capsicum (red pepper, as they call it in America)

1 green capsicum

1 small red onion.

8 slices of low calorie whole grain bread

4 oz low cal Jarlsberg cheese

In a nonstick fry pan, heat oil, and add the peppers and red onion, stirring constantly till they go very soft.

Preheat the grill (broiler), place the bread slices on a baking tray, and spread the chutney mix over each slice.

Top with capsicum (onion), cheese and tomatoes, and grill them (broil them) till the cheese melts and goes bubbly.
