Author Notes: Ok it's not really born again and it's not really a sandwich either; one could argue that it is not really a recipe, but there is no shame in that. It is a good way to not-ruin a perfect summer tomato though; it keeps the accompaniments minimal while taking it one step beyond gobbling on the way home from the farmer's market while driving with one hand. Once I tried one of these I found it difficult to stop and now I make them for lunch rather often. One could make it into an appetizer, too, with very small rice cakes and tomatoes.Starmade

Serves 1

  • 1 tablespoon simple tahini dressing (described in step 2)
  • 2 rice cakes (I like the ultra thin kind)
  • 1 perfect summer tomato, medium sized
  • 1/2 small avocado (optional but tasty)
  • coarse sea salt and ground black pepper
  1. Spread tahini dressing on rice cakes. Add sliced avocado if you have some. Add sliced tomato. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Eat.
  2. The simplest tahini dressing involves taking equal parts tahini and water, mixing well, adding an acid to taste (I like lime juice) with a sweetener to balance it (I like honey). Start with about a tablespoon each of acid and sweetener to a quarter cup each tahini and water; salt to taste. Fancier versions can be made if you are not in too much of a hurry to eat your tomato.
