Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes 
  • 1/4 cup basil 
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread 
  • 1 avocado 
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper 
  • 1/4 cup fat-free mozzarella, shredded
  •  2 tsp balsamic vinegar 

Directions:

  • 1. Halve each cherry tomato and finely slice the basil leaves. 
  • 2. Toast each piece of bread.
  • 3. Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Use a spoon to remove the avocado flesh from the skin and place it into a bowl. Add the chopped basil and pepper. Mash the ingredients together with a fork.
  • 4. Divide the avocado mixture between each piece of toast, spreading a layer onto each piece. 
  • 5. Add tomatoes onto the avocado cut-side-down. Divide the shredded mozzarella between each piece of toast and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. 

Recipe Tips:

• Heat the toast under a broiler for 1-2 minutes until the mozzarella is melted for a gooey, cheesy treat.

• Get creative: You can include corn, lime, and jalapeño for Mexican inspired toast or cucumber and sesame seeds for an Asian inspired meal.

• If your avocado is ripe but too firm to spread easily, puree it in a blender or food processor with the basil leaves.
