Awesome Avocado Bruschetta

By Susan Arruda


A delicious, fresh twist on an old favourite! 

Avocado offers a creamy texture and an impressive array of
nutrients, including 
vitamins B, C, E, and K, fiber, calcium and healthy monounsaturated fats.


1 ripe avocado
2 medium tomatoes, diced (approx. 2 cups)
3 stalks chopped, green onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. chopped cilantro
Juice of ½ a lime
1 tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes, diced
Sea salt and pepper to taste

1 tbsp. olive oil for brushing onto bread
Whole wheat baguette or dried whole wheat toasts/Friselle


Combine all ingredients. Optional: Let sit in the fridge for at least an hour to allow flavours to marinate.

Avocado chopping tip: Cut avocado in ½ , make cuts in the flesh while still in the shell, scoop out with a spoon.

                                                                                                                                                              Cut avocado while still in flesh
                                                                                                                                                           Cut avocado while still in flesh

Preheat oven to 400oF
Brush bread with olive oil and bake until crisp and edges begin to brown. (only a few minutes; don’t go far)

Top bread with the bruschetta mixture and serve.

Optional: Sprinkle additional cilantro over top, if desired.
