i just love avocado. it's so creamy and delicious. and adds an indescribable richness when you cook with it. plus, it's chock-full of MUFAs (i.e. healthy fats). bonus!
last night for a light dinner, i made avocado sandwiches. i had just bought some awesome fresh baked multigrain bread and was inspired to make use of some of my other recent farmers' market finds.
avo. sandwiches (makes 2 open face servings)
2 large slices of multigrain bread
1/2 shallot, thinly sliced
1/2 tbsp olive oil
3 large leaves of romaine lettuce
10 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
herbs (i used basil & rosemary from my garden : )
salt & pepper
(ham or turkey, optional)
1. saute shallots in olive oil. set aside.
2. quickly saute lettuce in same pan.
3. thinly slice avocado & arrange avocado on toasted bread.
4. top with lettuce, shallots, tomatoes, herbs, salt & pepper
so simple. so yummy. i put some freshly sliced ham on craig's, but opted for just veggies for mine. both versions got two thumbs up.
