Avocado Pesto Sandwich


This is probably the simplest and yet, one of the most decadent Avocado Pesto Sandwich I have ever put together! The sandwich is made with toasted whole-wheat bread with fresh mozzarella and slathered with a generous portion of avocado pesto. Simplicity at its best.

Avocado Pesto Sandwich

Ingredients

1 Large Avocado, mashed
3 Tbsp Pesto
Lemon Juice
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
200 g (1 Ball) Fresh Mozzarella, sliced into 8 pieces
4 Slices Whole-Wheat Bread

About ½ Tbsp of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Method

Preheat the oven to 425˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the mashed avocado, Pesto, mix well and season with lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper. Set aside.

Brush one side of each bread slice with olive oil. Place the bread slices, oiled side down, on the prepared baking sheet. Layer Mozzarella on two slices of bread and season lightly with salt and pepper. Toast in the oven for about 6 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the bread is toasted. Remove from the oven and slathered avocado pesto on the bread and press the sandwiches together firmly.
