We spend the vast majority of our day at work or school, so it is important to make sure we eat regular and healthy meals. During the 8 hours we should eat a second breakfast and lunch so that we do not lose energy during our duties. What is worth taking with you? What sandwiches are tasty and rich in nutritional value?
White bean and apple lard
Recently, vegetarian vegetable pastes are becoming more and more popular. They find their use even among carnivores. To prepare this paste you need: 600 grams of white beans, onion, apple, 8 pieces of dried plums, bay leaf, 2 cloves of garlic, olive oil, herbs
First, soak the white beans overnight in cold water. The next day pour fresh water over them, add allspice and bay leaf. Add salt and cook until soft. Dice the onion, apple and prunes, chop the garlic and lovage finely. Fry the onion in hot oil until brown, add the apple, garlic and plum. Let it cool down and then put the beans into the blender and grind. Put the blended mixture into a bowl, add olive oil and mix with fried ingredients. Season with herbs to taste. Finished lard is best served with pickled cucumber.
Fish paste sandwiches with egg and pickled cucumber
To prepare the paste you need: 3 tbsp mayonnaise, 200 g smoked mackerel, 2 eggs, cucumber – preferably canned, sunflower seeds, chives, hot bell pepper, half a lemon
To prepare the paste, start with hard boiling eggs. While the eggs are cooking, dice or grate the cucumber and chop the chives. You can roast sunflower seeds in a frying pan or leave them as they are in the packet. They taste great in both versions. Remove the skin and bones from the mackerel, put it into a bowl and mash into a paste. Then add mayonnaise, squeeze some juice from half a lemon, add boiled and peeled eggs, the remaining vegetables and mix thoroughly. Season the paste to taste and put it on sandwiches!

Spread the ready paste on tortilla slices, and roll them tightly.
