    This avocado bruschetta with tomato and onion is a traditional recipe from my mother, which is brilliant either at breakfast or lunch. It's also a fab vegetarian starter.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1/2 white baguette, sliced
    • 1 knob butter
    • 1 tablespoon oil
    • 1 avocado, mashed
    • 4 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 red onion, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:1min  ›  Ready in:11min 

    1. Put the butter and 1 teaspoon oil into a wide pan. The oil will help stop the butter from burning easily. Turn the pan up to a high heat and then place a tiny pinch of flour into the oil to see if it is hot enough. It should fizz.
    2. Place the slices of baguette in the hot oil and cook for about 30 seconds, turning once. Leave on a paper napkin to cool slightly.
    3. Combine the mashed avocado, tomatoes, onion, seasoning and oil. Toss well to combine.
    4. Spoon the avocado mixture onto each slice of baguette, and serve!

    I made this as per the above instructions but added garlic also I softened the onions in hot water and I marinated the tomatoes in balsamic reduction and finally I put little dots of cheese on top before grilling for a few minutes, it was delicious..  -  24 Apr 2014
