Garlicky Grilled Avocado, Tomato, Red Onion and Basil Toasty

Avocado, Tomato and Red Onion Sandwich
I know this isn't very original, but it is so good, and after some consideration - certainly blogworthy! I do add some little changes - like garlic 'butter' and smoked sea salt which set it apart just a little bit :)

2 slices white bread
1 clove garlic, pureed
10g vegan margarine
1/2 avocado, sliced
plamil garlic mayo
tomato slices
20 - 30g mature cheddar cheezly or other vegan cheeze
fresh basil - lots, you want to cover it
red onion, sliced or shallots or regular onion, I've made it with all 3 - all good :)
fresh black pepper
smoked sea salt
more vegan margarine for frying

First mix the margarine with the garlic and spread on one side of the bread. Spread the other side with the mayo and top with a few grinds of black pepper. Top the buttered side with the avocado and tomato and grind some smoked sea salt over top. Top with the cheezly, red onion and basil then place the mayo slice of bread on top. Spread the top of the sandwich with margarine and place this side down on to the hot grill pan. Place something heavy on top and when golden with dark lines underneath, spread the top half with more margarine and carefully flip over. Again place something heavy on top and cook until golden and the cheeze melts a bit.


  1. Yes, totally blogworthy! Looks delicious! I usually just make the usual plain cheese grilled sandwich. I'm now inspired to start mixing it up a bit :)

  2. Wow, VERY blogworthy. Especially since I was wondering what to do with my avocado before leaving on a skiing trip and was going to eat it plain, but this is just perfect. Don't have cheezly around, but with the nice things you have in there, I'm sure it will be awesome without!
