Avocado & Olives Toast

Avocados always brings back our memories of 8 years back old trip to Mettupalayam along with friends. And that's where, I tasted my first Avocado dish, which was creamy and delicious soup and of course, I still remember the taste of it.. From then, Avocados were my favorite and only couple of days back, I realized that my blog has only one Avocado recipe. So stay tuned...will be posting more :)

My Today's recipe is a simple and tasty toast using my favorite ingredient. This recipe is quite easy to prepare for breakfast or snack. The mashed Avocado blends with olives, pomegranate and few more ingredients to make a creamy and yummy spread. In this recipe, I have used one ripe Avocado in which 7 medium toasts can be prepared. To make it more healthy, I have used whole wheat breads which can also be substituted with the regular ones.. The taste of olives and sweetness of pomegranate gives a unique and delicious taste. The same recipe can also be prepared as sandwich, instead of open toast.

Ingredients :

1 Ripe Avocado
7 Black Olives, sliced
1/2 Tsp Chilli flakes
1 1/2 Olive oil
3 Tbsp Pomegranate fresh seeds
Salt to taste
Cheese powder to sprinkle ( optional )
7 Bread slices ( I have used whole wheat bread in this recipe )

Method :

Cut the avocado into half and scoop out the flesh.

Transfer into a small bowl and mash it using fork.

Now add the chopped olives, chilli flakes, Pomegranate seeds, salt and  olive oil.

Blend well and keep aside.

Heat tawa or grill pan and toast the bread for a minute on both the sides.

Spread the mashed Avocado on top of the bread and sprinkle cheese powder.

Toast it for couple of minutes in a low flame or until the bread turns crispy and remove from the flame.

Repeat the process for the remaining bread slices.

Serve hot.

Serving Options :

Serve hot with Tomato sauce.
