avocado bruschetta

I’m pretty sure that avocados improve any recipe out there.

Crab salad?  Better with avocados.

Parmesan cones?  Fill them with avocado!

Chocolate cake?  Ok, they’re not in the recipe so far, but I bet they couldn’t hurt.

But pair those delicious avocados with fresh summer tomatoes and crusty bread, and you might my favorite dish of the whole bunch.

Lots of recipes call for cheese in bruschetta, but that always feels a little too pizza-like to me.  On the other hand, a little richness in the form of some healthy fat is an amazing addition that makes this dish more satisfying, .

I’ve been on a big natural-fat kick, which is so great for my hair and skin.  Dishes like this are such an easy way to incorporate fresh, delicious, all natural foods into your diet — and delicious to boot.

Avocado Bruschetta

INGREDIENTS

1 avocado, cubed
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 shallot, diced
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp olive oil
Dash of garlic powder
Ground pepper
Sea salt
8 French baguette slices

DIRECTIONS

Combine avocado, tomato, shallot, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl.  Toss to combine.

Brush bread slices with additional olive oil and toast for 2 minutes.  Top each toast evenly with avocado mixture, and serve.

Serves 4.

    What a great idea! I’ve never had avocado on bruschetta, but like you I’m a huge avocado fanatic so I’m sure I’d love this recipe! Did it taste as delicious as it looks?

    I’ve been trying to incorporate more peanut butter in my life to amp up the healthy fats, but I seem to have forgotten about avocado!  you’re right…they make everything taste better.

    Avocados=green gold. My mom made a recipe of pesto last week where she used an avocado instead of olive oil. I *highly* recommend it :)

    This is quite excellent with a sliver of parmigiano reggiano.

    I read this post yesterday, and I just HAD to try it out. It was absolutely delicious, and I’m afraid I will be battling a new addiction soon…

    The next time we do Bruschetta I think we will have to try this, however, I am not a fan of raw tomatoes so I may substitute something else in. Also, chocolate cake could be better with avacados, switch it in for part of the butter that you would usually use (cut butter recipe amount and add avacado but still use some butter.) Better fat and better for you!

    we do mostly wedding desserts in orange county, but I wish we could add this to the menu – I can taste it just looking at it!
