One of many bites from the book: Whole-Grain Toast with Chickpea Paste, Avocado, and Grilled Tomato
Serves 2 / Prep time: 15 minutes / Cook time: 5 minutes
Toast the bread.
While the bread is toasting, heat a stove top grill or skillet over high heat.
Brush the tomato slices with olive oil. Grill the tomato slices until grill marks appear, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
Once the bread has toasted, brush with olive oil. Divide the chickpea paste between the two slices of toast, spreading it evenly. Top with the mashed avocado, then place a slice of grilled tomato on top.
Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, and serve.
Substitution Tip: Substitute gluten-free bread for the whole-grain bread if you’re avoiding gluten. You can also substitute hummus for the chickpea paste if you like.
Ingredient Tip: Beefsteak tomatoes are preferred for this recipe, since they have dense flesh and almost no seeds. If beefsteaks aren’t available, Roma tomatoes make a good substitute.
