I've read a million different translations of 'prasannata', but I've deduced it's use is somewhere around rejoice, joyful, tingling with happiness, and sunshine. Which is fitting, 'cause I recently spent the day with my way yogic friend Becca. She taught me some yoga, we made an awesome set of vegan sandwiches, and she left me feeling super zen. And really limber, and light on my feet. Like I had put down a backpack of daily bullshit for the day. Feels great. Also, I kind of needed a detox from all the meat I've been eating for the blog lately.
Side note. I probably won't be making anything with mangos again any time soon. They're all slippery, and mostly pit. What gives? Really good, but I'm not sure they're worth the bother. Always good to try new things though.
What's in it:
bread (Queen St Gluten Free Bakery white bean and millet seed)
This sandwich's beauty is in it's simplicity. Everything is raw, so the only thing you need to do, is to chop the salad/salsa stuffs. Then just put everything into a bowl, squeeze some lemon, lime if you have it, and stir!
You should let it sit so the flavours can settle. I would recommend half an hour if you have the patience. It really allows everything to absorb flavours from eachother, and become more complex. Then when you're ready, toast the bread (I pan toasted it on one side only, in coconut oil).
Then spread it all on!
And there it is. One sandwich to share, one on the way.
YAY for vegan meals, and deep stretching.
