Grilled Avocado

Grilled Avocado



  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 10-12 fresh basil leaves
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Coarse salt (Kosher)
  • Bakery French bread
  • 6 Tbsp salted butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder


Pre-heat grill to medium (375°F).  Cut avocados in half and remove the seeds.  Place the avocado cut-side down directly on the pre-heated grill or on a vegetable grilling rack.  Cook for 8 to 10 mins until the fruit is lightly charred, then transfer to plate to cool slightly.

Spoon the grilled avocado out of the peel into a medium bowl; mash it with a fork until chunky.  Slice the basil leaves into thin ribbons; add to the mashed avocado along with the juice of 1/2 lemon and salt to taste.  Stir well to combine.

Combine garlic powder with melted butter.  Slice bread into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness, spread butter/garlic mixture onto slices, and place butter-side down on grill until toasted.

Scoop avocado mixture on toasted bread slices and serve.  Serves four.
