Bermuda’s avocado trees are laden with fruit at the moment, and what better way to enjoy them than with this delicious version of the iconic avocado toast?
2 slices multigrain bread
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic cut in half
1 large avocado
2 lime wedges or lemon
kosher salt or sea salt flakes, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
A sprinkle of red pepper flakes (optional)
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro roughly chopped (optional)
Toast the bread in your toaster. Immediately after the bread is done toasting, while it’s still warm, drizzle each slice with about 1 tbsp of olive oil and rub the oil in with the cut side of the garlic. You should smell the garlic as the warmth of the bread heats it.
Cut the avocado in half with the peel still on. Remove the pit with a knife (carefully!).
Scoop 1/4 of the avocado on each piece of bread. Mash on top of the bread with a fork.
Slice the other half of the avocado while it’s still in the peel. Scoop out the slices with a spoon and spread out evenly on the two slices of bread on top of the mashed avocado.
Sprinkle each slice generously with salt and squeeze a wedge of lime or lemon onto each. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired. Enjoy!
