I’m always looking for fresh ideas for lunches that are tasty and healthy but also quick. This idea is inspired by my mum who in the days we had a family hotel used to make a starter with warm avocado in lovely white shell dishes. It was delicious and I now have the dishes as a little bonus 🙂
Avocados are highly nutritous and a great source of monounsaturated fats (heart healthy), potassium, fibre and carotenoids. Although high in calories these are all good calories.
So here is our new favourite way to eat them…
- 1 medium avocado
- 1 medium tomato
- 4 slices bread
- 40g brie
- Cut the avocado in half lengthways, twist to open, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Mash this with a fork.
- Spread the avocado onto the bread, top with sliced tomato and brie.
- Place under a medium hot grill for a few minutes until the brie is melted.
