Avocado, Tahini and Super Sprouts on Toasted Sourdough

Avocado

This avocado, tahini and sprouts on sourdough is a super quick and very healthy light lunch, brunch or snack. It’s gorgeous on fresh, toasted sourdough but any toast will work. It provides a great hit of omegas, protein and enzymes for a delicious, nutritious pick me up.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of sourdough bread (or gluten-free bread)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Tahini (add to taste)
  • Super sprouts (alfalfa, radish, mung bean, broccoli etc)
  • Paprika (smoked or regular)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (optional)
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Toast the sourdough (or other bread) and while you’re waiting, assemble the other ingredients.
  2. Slice the avocado width ways or mash it with a fork if you prefer. Set aside.
  3. Spread a layer of tahini onto the toasted sourdough.
  4. Place the avocado along the length of each of the slices of sourdough so they’re completely covered.
  5. Sprinkle a pinch of salt over the avocado.
  6. Cover both slices of toast with the super sprouts.
  7. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top (optional but I love it!) and then sprinkle paprika (the colours look lovely if you dust a little bit onto the plate).

 

  • This dish can easily be made gluten-free just by swapping the sourdough with a gluten-free bread of your choice.
  • Radish sprouts bring the most vibrant colour to the dish (sprouts can be grown at home or bought from local health food shop and some supermarkets).
  • If you haven’t tried tahini before, make sure you add it by the teaspoon as it’s got a very full flavour.
