I never know which of my recipes will ignite excitement in those who follow me on social media. But, I can tell you that this recipe did! And, quite frankly, I was shocked because it’s just such an easy simple recipe. Nothing fancy dancy. Nothing extraordinary about it. At least, that’s what I think.
To me, the star of this recipe is, of course, the avocado, but it’s the way the avocado is combined with the other simple ingredients that makes this avocado garlic crostini totally awesome!
Toasting the thin bread rounds, and I’m talking toasting just to a slight golden brown (you still want some of the ‘chew’ of the bread in them) then coating with the fresh garlic cloves is genius in amplifying flavors.
Add to that the drizzle of extra virgin olive oil then the sprinkling of spice mixture and you’d be ready to eat them just like that. But, wait! You’re gonna add a cream schmear of whipped cream cheese. Oh, yeah, I can eat them now, right?
No, wait, hold your horses. We’re gonna add on a slice of fresh healthy avocado and a juicy bite of tomato. Then if that was not enough a shower of fresh lime juice and a dusting of coarse ground pepper.
OK, so I think now you’re probably ready to jump in and make these avocado garlic crostinis, right now! I mean my yogini gal, Whit, and I made a meal from this entire cookie sheet. Yep, we ate them all! xoxo ~ally
Here’s what Whit and I also ate with these crostinis! Kung Pao Kidney Beans!
