Recipe: Avocado Bruschetta With Balsamic Glaze

I’m currently pulling the second batch of this avocado bruschetta recipe out of the oven, and the aroma is heavenly!

If there’s one recipe that I just can’t live without, it’s bruschetta. Bruschetta pairs well with pretty much everything. It’s versatile and can be served as a side dish or appetizer. But…let’s be honest here for a second. The real reason I love bruschetta so much is that it’s both fast and easy to throw together. And you really can’t mess it up. When you only have ten minutes to whip together a side dish because the kids are screaming, or you have friends coming over for dinner unexpectedly, this is the recipe you want to make!

We’ve been pretty obsessed with this Avocado Bruschetta recipe for the past year or so, and we have yet to get tired of it. Every time I make a batch for dinner, three quarters of the dish is gone before it even hits the table (no joke)!

Chop it like it’s hot

I’ll admit – chopping cherry tomatoes is probably one of my least favourite things to do.

The tomatoes get mushy if your knife isn’t sharp enough and the juices spray absolutely everywhere. I recently picked up a new pair of knives – the Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Fin Bread Knife, and the Zwilling J.A. Henckels Santoku Knife and they are honestly amazing. Both of these Henckels knives are made in Japan and truly make chopping and cutting so much easier. If you need to upgrade your set of knives, Kitchen Stuff Plus currently has their Henckels event going on until April 22/19 which means massive savings on ALL Henckels products! I highly recommend checking them out!

This avocado bruschetta recipe is a nice alternative to your traditional bruschetta, and it’s perfect for the spring season. It’s fresh, full of flavour, and full of healthy fats and antioxidants from the veggies and fruit! Enjoy!
