The Best Avocado Sandwich

This humble sandwich recipe is so very simple, but the end result is divine. Rich, smooth avocado pepped up with the tang of balsamic, the crunch of shallot, a hint of aromatic basil and sandwiched in crispy toasts. I did say it was simple, but Mmmmm, one of my all time favourite lunches.

The Best Avocado Sandwich (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)

makes 1 sandwich

  • 2 slices good quality wholemeal or (better still) sourdough bread, toasted
  • 1/2 perfectly ripe avocado
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsps good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 shallot, finely chopped
  • 4-6 basil leaves, roughly torn
  • salt and pepper

– Toast the bread

– Mash the 1/2 avocado over both slices

– Mix together the balsamic, oil, shallot and seasoning. Drizzle over the avocado.

– Scatter the torn basil leaves on top. (If you eat dairy add a few slivers of vegetarian parmesan-style cheese)

– Sandwich the 2 slices together.

– Cut in half and devour!
