Every Extreme 

I grew up trapped on a mountain top, wishing to ride down that slope, overcoming fear, defeating expectations for the dream and commitment to succeed another day.

YUM

Hummus and Avocado 

Toasts with Roasted Tomatoes

 

 

 

 

   

Makes 6 – 8 party bites


 Ingredients:

6-8 slices of bread [gluten-free, whole wheat, etc.]

1/2 cup hummus [store bought or homemade]

1 avocado – halved, pitted and peeled

4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise, cores and seeds removed

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

salt + pepper to taste

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Arrange the tomatoes on your baking sheet, cut sides up, in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.

 

Roast for 25-30 minutes, until the tomatoes are beginning to caramelize.

While the tomatoes roast, toast your bread. Using a cookie cutter or circular object, cut out 1-2 circles per toast, depending on how big the piece of bread is.

 

Spread ½-1 tablespoon of hummus on each circular toast.

 

In a bowl or plate, mash avocado with a fork, leaving large chunks.

 

Layer the mashed avocado over hummus, season with salt + pepper, and then top with a roasted [or fresh] tomato.

 

Serve immediately.

Optional: top with goat cheese or feta or serve on the side.


I want to be invited to a party now just so I can make this. Sometimes when you think you are creative, you realize you ain't got nothing on making good finger foods. Good thing I found this. Bring it on!
