Really Random Sandwich

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if this might be more appropriate in the "you know you a celiac when" thread but oh well :rolleyes:

Here are the ingredients:

2 corn thins

1/2 avocado

plain hummus

put the avocado on one corn thin, the hummus on the other, put em together... and there you have it...a really random sandwich. They just happened to be the only ingredients I had handy and I was hungry...but it was good! I'm thinking the addition of some turkey or chicken and salt and pepper might make it even better and less strange, but anyway, just thought I'd share...

(corn thins in my opinion are MUCH better than gluten-free bread in sandwich type situations....)

I put peanut butter on one corn thin and cream cheese on another corn thin and made a sandwich...sounds kind of strange but it was really good in my opinion! :)

Thanks for the idea - I just had a tuna/hummus/corn tortilla sandwhich yesterday, but now I want to try this with the avocado - great idea!

By "corn thins" do you mean tortillas, or is there something out there that I don't know about (I'm new to this)?

It's not a sandwich, but delicious nonetheless. I was going to have some Cocoa Pebbles last night, but we only had enough milk for the kids for breakfast, so I scooped out some Edy's Root Beer Float ice cream and poured the Pebbles on. Why didn't I think of this sooner? :huh:

I'd vote chicken over turkey, due to the hummus, but yes, that would be one tasty sandwhich. Wonder if you could get a tomato to stay on that thing? :lol:

Corn thins are one of my staples. And they don't go stale

Cottage cheese and avocado.

corn thins under baked beans and scrambled eggs.

In a hurry, just corn thins.

But when doing after school care, I must remember to take a few to share with the children. But they love the sakata crackers better, but would rather the flavoured types, which I won't have, only plain for me.

What are corn thins? Is there a certain brand? Is this a cracker? Please give more details as this sounds great! :D

They should be in the same aisle with the rice cakes (they come in the same type of packaging and they also look like rice cakes). I have found them in the Wild Harvest section of Shaw's and also with the rice cakes in Whole Foods. They are made by Real Foods.....website is www.cornthins.com

Thank you for sharing these with us! I can't wait to try them! I hope they have them at the Whole Foods by us. I've been looking for something to use as a "sandwich"! :D

They are very good..I hope you find them! I eat them constantly....they are good for a quick snack by themselves as well... (with a few squirts of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" no-fat buttery spray, they taste just like buttered popcorn!)

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Yes I'm sure they would. Corn Thins present endless sandwich possibilities :lol: I also like them with peanut butter. Sometimes I make egg sandwiches with them for breakfast.

Can you freeze Corn Thins? Anyone tried it? I love these. Great with Salmon, slice of onion, dolop of sour cream, pepper and dill.
