Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe Roma tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red onion finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 2 ripe avocados peeled, seeded and halved
  • Fresh basil leaves to serve (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze (reduction) to drizzle -- store bought or see recipe below
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
  • 1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss well to evenly combine all of the flavours.
  • Arrange prepared avocado halves onto a plate with fresh basil leaves.
  • Spoon the Bruschetta filling into each avocado halve and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Top with chopped fresh basil and parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
  • How To Make Balsamic Reduction: Combine 2 teaspoons light brown sugar sugar (sugar is option) with 1/2 cup vinegar in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low; allow to simmer for about 5-8 minutes or until mixture has thickened and reduced to a glaze. (If not using sugar, allow plain balsamic vinegar to reduce for 12-15 minutes on low heat.)
