Mushroom Sandwich

'Eat Healthy, Do Not Waste' is my mantra this Ramadan.

 Oil fried snacks are not at all a good idea to have during Iftars. But that has turned to a custom since years in many regions including ours.  To change or to revolt against the year old tradition is a big task in itself- to fight with our family members and with our own minds. As Jab is a doctor and health concious too(obviously) , I find it a bit easy to convince them.





We always break fast with fruit salads ,juice and water, as recommended by Prophet (PBUH) and now scientifically proven. We feel so good and refreshed after that. Sometimes we do make fruit custards, but most of the days we add fresh melon or orange juices to our fruit salads. Just a little but it tastes so good. Then, after prayer comes the teatime when we usually eat oily snacks. But the change we tried (to avoid oily stuffs) helped us to feel active during Tharaaveeh (prayer after) . One hour long prayer helps digesting these snacks easily and then it's time for a light meal. Suhoor (Early breakfast)defenitely should be a wholesome meal which help us to stay active the whole day. Eating dry fruits during Suhoor is highly recommended.


Ingredients:

Button Mushrooms 1 box
Oil 1tbsp
Onion 1/2
Garlic 4 cloves
Pepper 1 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves 1 1/2 tsp

Method:

1. Heat oil in a pan and saute onion till it changes it color.

2. Add garlic and saute a little more.

3. Pop in mushroom slices into it. Saute till it turns golden brown for about 10-12 minutes.

4. Once it is done, throw in coriander leaves.

5. Toast breads and assemble the sandwich ingredients.

6. Place cheese slice first, then mushroom filing, tomato slice, cucumber slice. etc and close with another toast.Microwave this for 20 seconds

Variation:

You can either assemble the sandwich and then toast it, if you like melted cheese.
Adding olives, mayonnaise, lettuce etc. may add variation to the taste, depending upon your choice.
