Pan Grilled Avocado

Pan Grilled Avocodo

A simple, quick, and entirely winning way to ingest some healthy monounsaturated fats and please your tastebuds all at the same time.

Per serving:

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.

Just wanted to mention if you didn't already know there is a new product that I love out. Its a Coconut milk from Turtle Mountain. It comes in original, vanilla, and unsweeted. All are great for baking! And my daughter who is allergic to dairy and soy, this is a great alternative. Plus is has better nutrtion aspects in MY opinon then rice or almond milk. Just thought I would share. I am soooo excited I found this product!
