There is nothing more Aussie than avocado toast...when I went to Australia a few months back the avocado toast craze was in full swing. Lucky for me, two of my favorite things in this world are a perfect avocado...and a crispy piece of gluten free toast. If I want to make anyone smile - this is what I make for them.
When I stopped eating gluten, the thought of never eating grilled bread again made me quite sad. Until I found some amazing GF breads. My favorite? 'Udi's' - a good old Colorado based company with awesome 'millet, chia - gluten free bread'.
I tend to make this when I am craving a satisfying, healthy and light midmorning, afternoon, night or late night snack... really whenever. Get creative with it, I happened to pick up some beautiful watercress at the Union Square Green Market - so I decided to make a nice salad this time.
Gluten Free - Bread (Udi's Chia Millett) - 1 slice
Organic Avocado - 1 each
Cherry Tomato - 3 each
Lemon - 1/2 each
Watercress - small handful
Local Honey - 2 tsp
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes - 1 tsp
Chili Honey (take 1/4 tsp of honey and pinch of red pepper and mix)
Olive Oil - 2 tsp
Apple Cider Vinegar - 1/2 tsp
Salt and Pepper - to taste
Avocado - First take your avocado, scoop it into a mixing bowl and mash it up a bit with the back of your fork. Next, season it with 2 tsp of olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Avocados can take a lot of salt so don't be too shy. Slice the cherry tomato in half length ways and gently fold it into the avocados.
Toast - simply take the toast and grill it or toast it... which every you desire...
Watercress - drizzle a teaspoon of oil, honey, apple cider vinegar and some salt and pepper over the watercress. Gently coat the leaves, using only your hands to mix.
The Finish - Take your perfectly grilled piece of bread, and scoop a nice hunk of avocado on to it. . . top it with the watercress salad and drizzle with chili honey.
Serve to your self of your favorite crush. It will make them smile - guaranteed.
