Open Faced Sandwich With Pickled Sprouts

My Granny always told us that fenugreek seed is very good for health and other day she send some pickled fenugreek seed sprouts. First I was bit surprised to see a small bottle of pickled sprouts and thinking what to do with it because it taste little bitter. But then I thought let honor her gift and pack this flavor and taste with my favorite open faced sandwich. So I stack tomato , bell pepper, cucumber and onion slice then spread pickled sprouts and topped it with a thick slice of egg. It taste good and the flavor is absolutely awesome.

For pickled  sprouts
Fenugreek seed sprouts    5 table spoon
Fennel seed     1/2 table spoon
Vegetable oil/ sunflower oil    3 table spoon
White wine vinegar 3 table spoon
Salt and pepper to taste

For sandwich
Bread slice  2 
Diet mayonnaise   2  heaping table spoon
Tomato   4 thin slice
Green bell pepper   4 thin slice
Cucumber   4 to 6 thin slice
Onion    4 to 6  thin slice
Egg     1 hard boiled sliced
Cilantro sprigs for garnish

Procedure :

Heat oil in a pan then add the fenugreek sprouts stir for a minute add the fennel seed, stir and put off the flame. Add vinegar, salt and pepper. Stir and let it cool. Then store it in airtight glass jar it stays quite okay in your refrigerator for a week or until some fungus get to know their residential address (hahaha)!
You can use this pickled sprouts as your salad dressing or in your omelets, it taste fabulous. But for today I am giving you the sandwich solution. The same old stack of veggies in your regular sandwich but totally in different flavor and taste.
First take your bread slice and spread diet mayo generously (you can use the regular one if you want). Then place tomato slice , onion slice , bell pepper slice, cucumber slice in layers one after another. Then take a teaspoon of pickled sprouts and spread over it . Then top it with a egg slice. If you want to sprinkle salt and pepper above it then it your choice but I think you don’t need it. Then a little sprigs of cilantro for garnish and your open faced sandwich with pickled sprouts is ready.

Be Happy And Stay Healthy.
