Avocado + Heirloom Tomato Toast with Balsamic Drizzle


from Blissful Basil

Avocado and Heirloom Tomato Toast with Balsamic

Ingredients
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2-3 slices hearty, seeded bread
  • olive oil
  • 2 small heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • ½ a ripe avocado
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
Instructions
  1. Make the balsamic reduction by adding the balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the balsamic to a boil, whisking constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until balsamic has reduced by half and is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Make sure you keep an eye on it — it burns quickly.
  2. Slather each slice of bread with a drizzle of olive oil and toast.
  3. Evenly divide the avocado between the pieces of toast and use the back of a fork to smash the avocado. Layer the sliced tomatoes on top, sprinkle with fresh basil, and drizzle with the balsamic reduction.
  4. Garnish with sea salt and black pepper.
  5. Serve immediately.
