Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta

Our Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta is a handy stand by when you are entertaining and want to fill your guests up on some delicious and healthy food before the main course arrives.  Avocado is incredibly filling and healthy, and tomatoes are full of Vitamin C and especially juicy in the summertime.  We have used coriander in this recipe but if your taste buds swing more towards basil, that is also an option.  Likewise, the recipe can be altered to use the bread of your choice - whether you are a spelt fan or a plain baguette lover - you decide!  The key is to toast the bread, immediately dollop on the tomato avocado mixture and serve so your guests can enjoy the hot and cold combo of flavours! 

  • bread of your choice
  • 12 chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1 peeled & sliced cubed avocado
  • 3 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil (2 for brushing bread and 2 for tomato marinade)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped (optional) 
  • finely chopped fresh coriander
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • Preheat the grill or oven to medium high or 180 degrees celsius.
  • Chop up your tomatoes, avocado, garlic and red onion.
  • Combine all of the above with the balsamic vinegar, oil, corainder, salt and pepper.
  • Slice the bread either thick or thin - your preference and brush with olive oil.
  • Toast the bread only in the oven for 6 minutes until just starting to brown on the edges.
  • Remove from oven and immediately sppoon on the tomato and avocado mixture.
  • Serve immediately with a garnish of coriander on top.
