Method to Prepare Avocado and Herb Pesto Sandwich

  • Add all Herb Pesto ingredients to a food processor, and blend until smooth: (1/2 cup (packed) fresh basil leaves, ¼ cup (packed fresh parsley), 1 tbsp. (packed) fresh dill, ¼ cup olive oil, ¼ cup shredded vegan parmesan, 3 tbsp. toasted pine nuts, ½ tsp. kosher salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, juice of ¼ lemon, 1 large garlic clove, minced).
  • Toast the 6 slices of brioche bread.
  • While bread is toasting, slice 1½ avocados, 2 Roma tomatoes, and 1/8 of red onion.
  • To assemble, spread 1 to 1 ½ tbsp. of pesto on bottom bread slices for the sandwiches, and a little less on the top slices. Layer sliced avocado on bottom slices, then repeat for sliced tomato and red onion.
  • Serve sandwiches with any remaining pesto. For those of us who are calorie conscious, can also try it as an open-faced sandwich (Save one slice).
