Trying A Healthier Life
I go on binges. I do healthy foods, then I have a huge cheesesteak sandwich and back to bad habits. I love food, all types.
I am on vacation in about 6 weeks. So I want to lose as much weight as I can. So my focus is on healthier foods, like this avocado bruschetta. Seeing that I updating some posts, I decided it time to update these also healthy posts I did back in 2013.

The avocado topped crostinis via 2013. Honestly, that old photo does not look appetizing, does it? The truth is this avocado bruschetta is very good.
Avocado and Feta
What makes this bruschetta different is that it adds not only avocado but feta to the tomato mixture. Tomato bruschetta, in general, is healthy, but adding avocado gives that extra healthiness to the bruschetta. It is like an avocado salad on a crostini.
Then add the feta and your mouth pops with flavor. To make the avocado bruschetta even better you have to have that balsamic. Bruschetta just isn’t bruschetta with balsamic in my opinion.
Avocado is one those foods I love, but do not do much with recipe-wise. So creating a bruschetta recipe with avocado is a way for me to really dive into my culinary senses.
I love the mixture of avocado, feta, tomato, balsamic. This avocado recipe is wow in my book. This healthy bruschetta is a wonderful appetizer that you will love.
A twist on bruschetta using avocados. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.
- baguette bread
- olive oil
- 2/3 cup feta cheese
- 2 small red tomatoes (chopped)
- 1 small shallot (chopped)
- 1 small cucumber, chopped
- 1 clove garlic (finely minced)
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 avocados (peeled, pitted and diced)
- First thing to do is make your toasted bread slices for the bruschetta. Slice the bread into thin slices. Than place them on an oiled cookie sheet. and brush the side facing up with some olive oil. Heat up your oven at 350 and place them in the oven for 8 minutes, till they look lightly toasted.
- While the bread is toasting, add everything else into a bowl and give it a good stir. Take the bread out the oven, and let the slices cool slightly.
- Finally place little scoop onto each of the little bread slices and enjoy this great little treat!
Want to bring out the flavor more? Heat up a saute skillet and put the avocado mixture in the saute pan and saute until the shallots are clear. Then scoop onto the crostini!
