Servings: 4 servings
- 2 ripe Haas avocados
- 4 slices whole wheat bread or another sturdy rustic bread like sourdough, or 12-grain
- 1 lime
- sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes rinsed and cut in half
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic minced finely or grated
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 Tbsp fresh goat cheese crumbled
- fresh basil chopped, for garnish*
Rinse the avocados and dry them. Cut it in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Scoop out the inner flesh of the avocados and place in a medium size bowl along with the juice of one lime (may substitute lemon juice) and salt and pepper to taste. Mash with a potato masher or a fork until everything is incorporated. You can either mash it smooth or leave it chunky. I prefer to leave it chunky. Set aside.
Add the olive oil and garlic to a small skillet over medium heat. Saute for a minute or so, until the garlic flavor infuses the oil. Stir often and watch carefully, do not let the garlic burn. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
Place the tomato slices, balsamic vinegar, and garlic infused oil into a medium bowl and mix thoroughly. Taste, add salt and pepper if needed.
Melt the butter in a large skillet and grill the bread slices over medium heat until the bread is golden brown on both sides.
To assemble Bruschetta Avocado Toast, spread 1/4 of the avocado mixture on each piece of toast. Top with 1/4 of the tomato mixture and 1/4 of the goat cheese crumbles. Garnish with the chopped basil and serve immediately. Enjoy!
