No Cook Meal: Prosciutto and Avocado Bruschetta

avotoast_5

Being temporarily without a fridge and oven means that I’ve had to get a little creative in terms of preparing meals (and because I got tired of peanut butter on toast). This prosciutto and avocado bruschetta is inspired by a brunch I had at Angie’s Little Food Shop (my favourite place in Chiswick for whiling away a weekend morning). Essentially, it’s everything I love in one meal: avocado, cheese, meat and bread. Genius.

I like serving this dish with tea and a green juice for a leisurely brunch, but it’s also perfect for a quick, satisfying lunch when I’m working at home. I generally don’t like to have to spend a lot time making lunch, so when the most complicated step is smashing an avocado, I’m happy!

Here’s the recipe:

No Cook Meal: Prosciutto and Avocado Bruschetta
 
A brilliant, no cook dish that's perfect for brunch or a working lunch.

Ingredients
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • juice of ½ a lime
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 slices of emmental for each pice of bread
  • 2 slices of prosciutto for each piece of bread
  • handful of lettuce leaves
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • Good, crusty loaf
Instructions
  1. Pop a couple of pieces of bread into the toaster.
  2. Scoop out the avocado into a bowl and mash together with the lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon the avocado mash onto the toasted bread, then add the slices of cheese followed by the prosciutto.
  4. Top with a handful of salad leaves, a drizzle of olive oil and enjoy!

 

Frankly, even when I have all the modern kitchen commodities, I still like a no cook meal on days when I just can’t be bothered, so here are a few more suggestions:

++ Mozzarella, Basil and Tomato salad (served with a fresh baguette and a glass of crisp of white wine, this is my idea of a perfect meal).

++ Almond Butter and Banana milkshake for a great breakfast or post-workout snack.

++ Quinoa Tabbouleh (just buy pre-cooked quinoa).

++ A great cheeseboard.

Do you have any super easy, no cooking required suggestions for me? I’d love some more inspiration!
