Avocado - Sumac Bruschetta !

Bruschetta or crostini? you name it ...
Interesting to know how to correctly pronounce bruschetta, it's like BRU-S-KETTA!!!
Did you know that? :)

I wanted to take those crostini to a whole new level! decided to think wild, add some of my lebanese Sumac.. why not?

Slice up your tomatoes

Slice your beautiful baguette 

And now, the fun part !

Avocado-Sumac Bruschetta 
You will need:
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic glove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sumac
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano                               
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and cubed
  • 1 Rome tomato, cubed.
  • 6 (or however many you want) 1/2-inch thick slices whole grain baguette, toasted.

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, garlic, salt, sumac, oregano, and black pepper, mixing well.
2. Very slowly, add the olive oil, whisking constantly, until well-emulsified.
3.Very carefully, fold in the avocado cubes and tomato, tossing to thoroughly coat with the olive oil mixture.
4. Spoon onto the toasted baguette slices and sprinkle with additional sea salt, if desired.  Serve immediately.

About Avocado:Sometimes called the alphabet fruit because just one avocado provides your body with vitamins A, C, E, K and B6 so you can be sure you’re getting plenty of body nourishments with each bite. Other vitamins found in relatively large quantities in an avocado include riboflavin, niacin, folate and pantothenic acid.

When you’re looking for avocado nutrition facts, pay close attention to potassium because one avocado has 975 mg.

P.S : I ate the whole thing !!!
