Avocado-Caper Bruschetta

I got up this morning to make toast with avocado for breakfast. Apparently, however, I can’t just make toast with avocado without doing fancy things to it.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and gently mashed (leave some chunks) $1.50
  • 2 tbsp finely-chopped red onion $0.50 for a whole onion
  • 2 tbsp drained capers, plus more for garnish $2 for a 4-oz. jar
  • extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • juice of 1/4 lemon $0.50 for a whole lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 4 thick slices sourdough bread or 8 baguette slices $1.50 for a loaf
Total Cost of Ingredients $6

Directions

In a small bowl, mix together the avocado, onion, capers, 2 tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Drizzle the tops of the bread slices liberally with olive oil and heat a dry grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the bread, oiled side down, for 3-4 minutes, until toasted with grill marks.

Top grilled slices with the avocado mixture and garnish with a little drizzle of olive oil and a few capers.

Serves 2.

I found your blog after googling “avocado caper” to find recipes using both, because the combination was speaking to me right then. I just topped it with a bit of smoked salmon so I could claim it was a complete meal, and it was the perfect dinner.
