yummy snack!


This is really my new favorite breakfast! I was introduced to it at Rushmeyers on our trip to Montauk, NY last summer. It's probably nothing new to many of you folks in California but I just wanted to share it because it's so DARN delicious! I like to have it on toast for breakfast but it would make a great snack any time of day!

1/2 avocado
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
juice of 1/4 lemon
really GOOD olive oil*
red pepper flakes (invest in some good red pepper flakes from any gourmet store, they make just about any dish fantastic!)

mash them all together and put on toast or rye crisp, adjust your flavors to your own taste, I like a lot of pepper and a lot of lemon!

* I keep a bottle of REALLY good olive oil just for topping off brown rice or any grain and pasta... don't cook with this oil, you are throwing your money away (I put a big label on it that says "NOT FOR COOKING" so everyone in the house knows what to do!), just use it for topping and salad dressing - sometimes these will cost you as much as $25 or so but they are really worth it! Your cooking flavors will improve exponentially!

happy snacking!

Love avocados! They taste great with just olive oil and/or balsamic vinegar. And yes we save the fancy/expensive olive oil and balsamic for dipping bread and salad dressing.
