It is such a healthy recipe as you can top it with extra goodness! Just like an open-style sandwich. It just can’t get better than that! In Scandinavia, it is standard to eat open-style sandwiches. 

This recipe is free from dairy, wheat and gluten, soya, egg, and nuts. Such a perfect recipe for the whole family, any time of the day (except breakfast perhaps). 🙂
