Lingonberries are small red slightly sour berries that are famous throughout Scandinavia. Lingonberry bread, as the one we have here, is a mix we got at the local Ikea. It is a dark bread, almost rye, with a minimal amount of lingonberries (We found 3), and decent if you’re in a rush (and for just a couple bucks, it’s very well priced). However, we won’t be trying it again, at least not without some augmentation. This sandwich was made on our first lingonberry bread ever, fresh out of the oven (and that’s always good). Sliced turkey from the local deli, creamy garlic paste from the local farmer’s market and fresh avocado and red bell peppers makes up this little adventure. The creamy garlic paste we found is amazing on sandwiches, and we highly recommend it. It’s from ‘The Majestic Garlic”.
Turkey Sandwich Recipe
- 1 slice of lingonberry bread
- 6 tbs turkey, about 2 1/2 big slices.
- 1 tbs creamy garlic paste on the bread, and 2 tsp on top of the bread
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 tbs red bell pepper
- 1/2 tbs onion
Bake a bread (we used lingonberry bread, but really, any will do), spread 1 tbs creamy garlic paste on the bread, and cover with the turkey. Spread out the onion, either diced or cut in short slices like here. Spread out the avocado on top, then the 2 tbs garlic paste, and finish of with the diced red pepper (which will stick in the garlic paste).
This one is great with a glass of good red wine.
