I have been seeing pictures upon pictures of avocado on toast for months on Pinterest. And each time I saw one, my mouth would automatically start dripping with drool. I figured there probably wasn’t too much to it, so I went ahead and picked up some of that prickly fruit, my favourite AMAZING flaxseed rye bread, and, well, everything else I had in my fridge so…..
Anyways, here’s what happened!!
- 2 slices Dimpflmeier Flaxseed Rye Bread – or whatever your favourite is
- 6, 1/4 – 1/2in thick slices fresh mozzarella
- 1 avocado, cut in half, pit removed, thinly sliced on a diagonal
- 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, or less (I like cilantro though)
- 1 lime
- Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to a low broil. You just want the heat coming from the top. Or you can do this in a toaster oven. Up to you.
Place 3 slices of mozzarella on each slice of bread, and toast in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, approx. 3 – 5 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare the rest of your ingredients.
Remove the toast from the oven, and lay half an avocado on each slice. Top with cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice, and a sprinkling of coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
Enjoy warm, crispy, ooey gooey and delicious!
