AVOCADO CUCUMBER TOAST

AVOCADO CUCUMBER TOAST

Fresh, easy and very tasty.

What a great way to start your day with some crispy pan-grilled toast, creamy garlicy avocado and tangy lime-dressed cucumber ribbons…

AVOCADO CUCUMBER TOAST

what you will need

1 mini cucumber, thinly sliced in ribbons

2 tbsp lime juice, divided

sea salt and pepper

1 ripe avocado

2 bulbs of roasted garlic (my boat how-to here)

1 healthy pinch of crushed chilis

12 grape tomatoes, halved

2-3 tbsp olive oil for drizzling and toasting

1 6″ ciabatta, halved vertically and horizontally to give 4 pieces or bread of your choice

Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Squeeze garlic from bulbs and mash with the avocado.

Stir in remaining lime juice and season with salt, pepper and crush chilis.

Toast each of the four pieces of ciabatta.

My favourite method on the boat is to brush well with olive oil

and toast on a hot grill pan until nicely browned.

Divide avocado mixture amongst each toast.

Top with tomato and cucumber ribbons.

Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and serve.
