Gluten Free Avocado Chimichurri Toast

avo_bruschetta1_cc_2000_1125

Talk about a fusion of world cuisines! Cubes of avocado are folded into chimichurri—an Argentinean sauce made of chopped parsley, cilantro, garlic, vinegar, and oil—to create a Latin variation on bruschetta, a classic Italian appetizer. This would be great as a snack or a healthy and quick breakfast plus it’s loaded with tons of healthy fats from the avocados. You’re gonna love this one!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 6 1/2-inch-thick slices gluten free bread, toasted

Preparation

Combine lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, oregano, and black pepper in small bowl. Whisk in oil, then stir in cilantro and parsley. Fold in avocado cubes. Spoon avocado mixture onto toast slices, and serve.
