Ingredients (1 serving)
2 oz. smoked salmon
2 whole avocados, smashed
1/2 sliced purple daikon, pickled
1 egg, poached
3 sprigs watercress
2 oz. leek pesto, see recipe
2 bunches leek tops, flash fry in deep fryer
2 c. spinach
1/2 c. pumpkin seeds
1 1/2c. extra virgin olive oil
4-5 garlic cloves, roasted
2 oz. lemon, juiced
1/2 c. parmesan cheese

Directions for Leek Pesto
Flash fry the leek tops in a deep fryer. In a food processor combine the leeks, spinach, pumpkin seeds, parmesan cheese and garlic. Pulse until pumpkin seeds are chopped fine. With the motor running, add the oil and lemon in a slow stream and blend the pesto until smooth.

Sandwich Directions
Toast 2 slices of bread. Smash 2 whole avocados together in a bowl and spread onto 1 slice of bread. Top the avocado with 2 oz. of smoked salmon and place a poached egg on top. Garnish the sandwich with the watercress and the sliced daikon. Lastly put the leek pesto on the side and lay the remaining piece of bread on top.

Sandwiches are wonderful. You don't need a spoon or a plate!
