The Avocado Toasty

This is a quick recipe for a humble little sandwich, which the Saint and I have coined  ” The Avo Toasty”. A staple snack in both of our lives. Quick to make and thoroughly satisfying, this is snacking at its finest!

You will need:

1 Baguette or a quality loaf

1 Avocado

1 Tomato

Balsamic Vinegar

Olive Oil

Sea Salt

To begin you will need a good quality slice of bread. I visited my favorite local bakery, Juliens  in the Hydrostone district of Halifax, and I picked up a nice whole wheat baguette. I find any bread with a good crust works well to contrast the soft avo+tomato combo.

A trip to the grocery store should provide the other essentials.

If you are not familiar with choosing Avocados, you are looking for one that is a rich greeny brown colour and slightly soft to the touch. You do not want an under ripe avo, these taste awful and they are impossible to mash up. Grab a tomato that catches your fancy and you’re all set (assuming you have balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and sea salt at home).

So now you are home, cut the avocado in half (vertically), remove the pit, spoon out the tasty flesh, and mash in a bowl. Slice your bread and toast it if you feel the need. Chop up your tomato, and then assemble your ultimate snack with a pinch of sea salt and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar + olive oil. Voila! The Avocado Toasty.

You can add to it or subtract from it, but essentially all i’m trying to say is: a ripe avocado + crusty bread = bliss.

Avocado’s are a fantastic source of fat. Consider using them instead of cheese on a sandwich 🙂
