Lentils with Vegetables soup and Tuna Rye Sandwich is a wholesome balanced meal with simple preparation and no fuss of cooking. The Rye bread is a perfect match with Tuna salad when combined with avocado beetroot spread. It is convenient to use the beetroot ketchup which is high in antioxidants and also a heart-friendly sauce. It gives the sandwich an earthy flavor. This sandwich can be addictive! I chose the natural can lentils because it helps me to reduce the work and times of soaking and cooking the beans.
