A simple, quick, and entirely winning way to ingest some healthy monounsaturated fats and please
your tastebuds all at the same time.
1 ripe avocado, cut in half, peeled and pitted
squeeze of fresh lime juice
drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
freshly ground pepper, to taste
fine sea salt, to taste
1 slice toast or other breadlike substance, as a base
Heat a Bar-B-Q or indoor grill (I used the latter). Sprinkle the cut surfaces of each avocado half with lime juice and olive oil. Place cut-side down on grill and cook for about 2 minutes; gingerly turn over and cook on the other side, turning so that grill marks will cross each other, another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and place on toast. Add pepper and salt to taste. Makes 1 serving.
