It was a lazy Tuesday. So I pulled out InterCourses and made some Toasted Nutella and Banana Sandwiches. We love Nutella, my husband literally takes a spoon and eats it straight out of the bottle. So, it was a given that we were going to love these sandwiches. There is something about the hazelnut combined with chocolate that is utterly indulgent.
Making these sandwiches is very simple, just like making any sandwich. I toasted my bread. The recipe calls for white bread, but I used whole wheat. I don’t think it makes much of a difference. While the bread toasted, I sliced by banana into small pieces, first diagonally then across. I lavishly spread creamy Nutella on all the lightly toasted bread and then topped two with the banana pieces. I use the other two slices of bread to finish my sandwich.
Need I say more. It was heavenly and a sweet treat from the usual meal at the table. Bananas have long been offered to the fertility Gods in India. The nutrients in bananas are essential to sexual hormone production. It’s packed with Potassium and Vitamin B. This special sandwich also included essential aphrodisiacs, such as chocolate and nuts, in the Nutella. It’s a heavenly coming together of foods and an inspiration for the coming together of two people.
