Roasted Bell Pepper and Avocado Sandwich with Dijon and Buckwheat Honey

8 Feb

Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

Adapted from the Flat Belly Diet Cookbook

These days I am dancing up to 12 hours a week.  I get plenty of exercise and I want to make sure that I eat as healthy as possible and keep up my energy for dance.  Each meal I eat is balanced containing fruits/vegetables, carbs, proteins and healthy fats.

This vegetarian sandwich is very filling and the best part that it’s slightly over 300 calories.  This makes a light lunch which takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.

I shared this recipe with the girls in our Team and they all like it 🙂

Have got to stay in shape to fit into this sexy Salsa costume!


  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp buckwheat honey (pure natural unpasteurized)
  • 2 tbsp light ricotta cheese
  • 1 small (6-inch) chipotle whole grain tortilla 
  • 1 red bell pepper, roasted (I used a jarred variety this time)
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced


  1. Combine the mustard and honey and spread it on the tortilla.
  2. Top it with the ricotta cheese, pepper and avocado.

    I’ll have to try this recipe. I love rich taste of Buckwheat honey–though it sometimes is difficult to find.

      I buy it at my local Italian supermarket. You may substitute Buckwheat honey for another variety – it still will taste good.
