I often find myself creating dishes around simple ideas, and the results are beautiful and scrumptious. Take toast, for example. A simple canvas that has endless possibilities. I am a huge fan of toast and avocado with some sea salt and pepper. However, when I purchased grape tomatoes and a huge bag of fresh basil an idea sparked.
One of my favorite flavor combinations is basil, tomato and salt. I took this obsession and added even more obsessions to that: creamy avocado and spicy red onion. All atop a toasted piece of sprouted toast. Magic.
1 piece sprouted toast
1/4 – 1/2 avocado
4 – 5 large basil leaves (enough to cover the piece of bread)
8 grape tomatoes, sliced in half
small handful of red onion, chopped small
salt and pepper to taste
small drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Layer ingredients on the toast. Eat and enjoy. Simple.
You could use the same recipe and use French baguette rounds for appetizers.
