Wondering what to do with leftover avocado that is just sitting in your fridge? One of my favorite things to do with it is turn it into a simple avocado spread sandwich for the lunchbox the next day!

All these lunches fit into the Omie Lunchbox which I think is so beautifully designed! It's perfect for the little kids and big kids alike! (this link goes to Amazon where I am compensated on products sold at no cost to the consumer)
Here's How to Make a Simple Avocado Spread Sandwich:
This sandwich is so easy to put together in a flash! Take one half of an avocado and scoop it out into a bowl, and add lemon juice and salt and pepper.
For extra protein, I add a little tahini, which I typically have in my fridge for my homemade hummus! Tahini is just ground sesame seeds but adds a lot of protein to an avocado sandwich!
With a potato masher, mash up the tahini and avocado until it's well combined.
Then, spread the avocado-tahini mixture onto the bread.
I like to add a few slices of radish and tomato for extra freshness and to sneak a few more veggies in to this lunch.
Then, take the thermos out of the lunch box and now, you have the perfect spot for a sandwich!
For other snacks to go with this sandwich, I like to pack a kiwi, veggie chips and some nuts and dried fruit.
