Breakfast Bruschetta

On weekday mornings where I have 10 minutes to eat breakfast, pre-preparation is the essential ingredient and I always go with something quick to throw together; porridge sachets for example, or my pre-made quinoa granola if I have any left. Breakfast becomes a routine, something to quickly satisfy the early morning pangs of hunger, while making sure that it’s relatively nutritious and palatable.

On weekends however, I like to take my time and put a bit more effort into my breakfasts if I wake up early enough. I made this a while ago after seeing Nigella Lawson’s Breakfast Bruschetta on Nigella Express and almost couldn’t believe that she needed to write a recipe for something so simple – but if she could do it, why couldn’t I? I’ve altered and tweaked the ingredients with what I had in my kitchen garden and in the fridge, and what turned out was a breakfast that was simply sublime. So here I will pass it onto you.

You will need:

  • Two slices bruschetta (I had one slice French white sourdough and one slice walnut sourdough but use what you like);
  • Extra virgin olive oil;
  • One clove of garlic;
  • 1/2 a roma tomato;
  • 1/4 avocado;
  • 5-6 small basil leaves;
  • 2 + 1/2 teaspoons of lime juice (bottled is fine);
  • salt and freshly cracked black pepper.

Cut your garlic clove in half and rub over the two slices of bruschetta before drizzling with a bit of olive oil and toasting it. While it’s toasting, into a small bowl dice your tomato and combine with the basil leaves and 1 teaspoon of the lime juice. Into another small bowl, mash the avocado with a pinch of salt and the remainder of the lime juice.

When the bruschetta is toasted, put it onto a plate and top one with the tomato, and the other with the avocado. Drizzle both with more olive oil and crack over some fresh black pepper.
