SUMMER SANDWICH WITH WHITE BEANS AND CHERRY TOMATOES ON AVOCADO AND WASABI BUTTER

Summer Sandwich with Avocado and Wasabi Butter, White Beans and Cherry Tomatoes

I get really lazy when it come to cooking in the summer and often think sandwich when I think about making lunch. But I do like a nice sandwich with interesting flavours and flavours and possibly also healthy and nutritious as well. And good looking because that really is important when it comes to sandwiches, we need to feed our eyes. But maybe not too good looking, I remember reading somewhere once that if we eat without seeing what we it is that we are eating, we eat less than when we can look at the food on our plate. The brain apparently listens only the stomach and its signals instead of involving all those complicated signals that are both visual and playing with our taste memories and that makes us hungrier and/or more inclined towards gluttony! Did I destroy your appetite now? I hope not!
