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!
