Low sodium open-faced sandwiches/toast

These are some of my favorite low sodium open-faced sandwich/toast combinations. Each starts with a slice of toasted low sodium crusty boule bread which has virtually no sodium to start with. Then add your favorite low sodium sandwich toppings for an easy, basically no cook meal or snack. The possibilites are endless!



1) Avocado toast with salt free everything bagel seed blend and chopped herbs (less than 5 mg sodium) - Smear about 1/4 an avocado on the toast, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the seed blend (a mix of equal parts poppy seed, minced dried garlic, minced dried onion, white sesame seeds, an black sesame seeds), and a teaspoon of your favorite fresh herbs, chopped. I like parsley, cilantro, and basil. Other toppings I love on avocado toast: sliced radishes (11 mg sodium per 1/4 cup), lemon juice, plain tomatoes, cucumbers, raw onions, pickled onions, and soft boiled eggs (70 mg sodium for a large egg, see #4 below). Most of the vegetables have trace amounts of sodium.


2) Sautéed mushrooms with Swiss cheese and thyme (40 mg sodium) - Melt Swiss cheese on toast and top with two thinly sliced cremini mushrooms sautéed in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with fresh herbs. For an extra creamy treat, add a fried or soft boiled egg (70 mg of sodium) on top.


3) Tomato spread with soft boiled egg (70 mg sodium) - Spread 1-2 teaspoons of tomato paste on toast, drizzle balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and top with a soft boiled egg. To soft boil an egg, steam a cold egg in 1 inch of boiling water for 6 minutes, then take it out and put it in a water bath until cool enough to peel.


4) Peanut butter, honey, banana (less than 5 mg sodium) - Spread unsalted peanut butter on toast, layer thinly sliced bananas on top, and drizzle with honey.
