So seriously, when I told you I was obsessed with avocados, I wasn’t kidding.
I. seriously. can’t. stop. eating. them.
How could something that’s technically a fruit (but everybody thinks is a vegetable) taste so decadent, yet be so good for you? Seriously, nature’s butter. Perfect for it’s bread spread-ability. So this recipe is like bread and [nature’s] butter.
One of the easiest appetizers in the world is grilled baguette. Brush it with a bit of olive oil, and throw it on an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan until it’s toasty and crunchy. Eat it as is, sprinkle it with herbs and spices, rub it with a clove of raw garlic, or mash avocado onto it. Because I love the combination of something smooth with something crunchy, I decided that the generous amount of smooth avocado here would stand up to two crunchy items – both the grilled bread and some mixed nuts. A five-minute appetizer that tastes like a million bucks!
