Chef Robert Irvine’s Tomato and Fresh Aioli Sandwich


(upbeat music)
– Hi, this is Chef Robert
Irvine from BodyBuilding.com
and today we’re gonna how to
make something really simple.
It’s called a tomato sandwich
but done with a difference.
There’s nothing more amazing
than a simple tomato sandwich
when you get beautiful,
ripe tomatoes and nice aioli
and a crisp crunch from
a whole grain bread.
Alright, so, we’re gonna start.
Really simple, in my pan
here, I put a little bit of
grated oil and butter, just
a touch of butter, to give me
a nice, crisp on one side
of whole grain bread.
Again, you can use sour dough or
you can use any other type of bread.
There.
Beautiful color.
I’m gonna take that out cause
I only want one side done.
And you can see I only
use a little bit of oil.
The pan is dry.
Let that go there.
I’m gonna make an aioli.
Aioli is like a mayonnaise
with egg yolks and oil.
Now you could, if you want
to get big muscles, do it in
a bowl and whisk and add the oil gently.
I’m gonna make the quick way.
I’m gonna put it into a little blender,
some oil, grape seed oil.
You could use olive oil if you wish.
Not my idea of some fun.
I like grape seed, better for us.
I’m gonna take a little bit of
pepper, a little bit of salt,
a little bit of lemon juice.
Again, this is the quicker way, I think.
(blender running)
Instant lemon aioli.
It should coat the back
of a spoon, like so.
That’s called aioli.
We’ll get back to that in a second.
So, we’ve got aioli made.
We’ve got our breads toasted.
Now we take our tomatoes.
I want a nice, thick slice of tomato.
One, two, three, I do one more.
You want ’em about so thick.
Because you want that when you
bite through that sandwich,
you really want to taste the tomato.
Now, tomatoes, no matter
were you come from,
do not come seasoned.
So, pepper,
and salt.
We’ve got our bread.
We take our aioli.
Onto the base of the bread.
Now remember, this is
the egg yolks and oil.
I like a lot of it.
We’re gonna take our tomatoes.
I’m gonna take a little bit of
basil, cause basil obviously
goes with tomatoes.
Chop the basil.
And if you wanted to, you
could’a put this into the aioli.
I don’t.
I like the fresh basil right
on top of the tomatoes.
Nice.
And you can just smell this
intense flavor of the basil.
Here’s the twist.
We’re gonna take some radish
and some red onion on top
and a little bit of arugula.
Now with the arugula, I’m
gonna put it into a bowl.
Take a little bit more of
the dressing, just a tad.
Mix it together.
Onto the sandwich.
Ooo, when you eat this, when you put this
in front of people, they’re gonna go nuts.
Squash it down.
I mean, just look at that sandwich.
There we have it.
A simple, toasted, whole
wheat bread, tomato sandwich
with aioli made fresh,
radish, onions and arugula.
Simple, healthy, fresh and vibrant.

  2. I don't see what this has to do with bodybuilding… This meal is really high in calories, with quite some carbs and a fuckton of butter (you don't get this bread color with just a little butter) and oil.

    It is a good sandwich, not a healthy one

  3. Thanks a lot for this video. I have a question please. Is it harmful for the kidneys and liver to take 75-100 g of shake protein a day in order to complete my daily needs of protein which I can not cover by normal meals?
    thanks a lot in advance

  4. It does look and sound good, if I could ever get good tomatoes where I live, the markets where I live are terrible, I would try it, but I could I substitute a lemon aioli for a roasted red pepper aioli?

  5. Bodybuilding is too expensive for me I've to spent £200-300 per month just on supplements to look really big

  6. Serious question, I'm not criticizing. Is it "dangerous" for lack of a better word, to eat this aioli? It has raw egg yokes, and cant that harbor Salmonella? Again, this is a real question. Just curious if it's safe to think you wouldnt get food poisoning.

  7. No! Keep it simple and southern. American. If it ain’t broke don’t fix its y’all gotta try and make simple great things worse.

  8. I'm no body builder but , as a strict vegetarian, this is MY kind of food Mr. Irvine…..BUT :- Aioli always has garlic in it…..any French person ( and Aioli is French !!!) would tell you . If you say sandwich (as it should be pronounced) but not sAndwich, why do you say bAsil instead of basil, and tomAto instead of tomato ?

  9. Not bad !!! What'a your preferred Tomato ? BTW, I like the way you present the foods ; there must be some Italiano in you, lol.

  10. I cannot stop watching this guy!! He’s brilliant!! Kind of annoyed that he’s married but then I just remembered so am I. 🤷🏻‍♀️ The food is good though we already tried some of these recipes!!
