  • 4 slices whole grain bread lightly toasted
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • fresh lime juice from 1/2 small lime
  • 2 tbsp prepared basil pesto
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 slices provolone cheese or Swiss cheese optional

Suggested Veggies

  • fresh baby spinach

  • cucumber thinly sliced
  • roasted red bell peppers patted dry
  • grilled zucchini slices
  • red onion pickled or thinly sliced raw

  1. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado, and stir in the prepared basil pesto and lime juice. Leave it as chunky or smooth as you prefer. Add a pinch of salt and a bit of black pepper.

  2. Spread the avocado pesto on each slice of toasted bread, followed by a slice of cheese if you prefer. Layer your desired veggies and top with another slice of toast. Cut in half, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Try grilling your veggies if you like a softer cooked veggie. The avocado pesto is fantastic on a BLT sandwich too!
