Serves: 4

1 poblano pepper 4 thumb-size stalks green garlic 2 tsp. oil 2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and diced 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice 1/8 salt, or to taste 4 slices sourdough bread, or rustic rye 4 Tbsp. crushed corn nuts (quicos)
  1. For the poblano pepper, preheat the oven to 425F and roast for 10 minutes or until the skin begins to blister. Remove from the oven, place in a bowl, and cover to let steam for 10 minutes.

  3. In a bowl, mix together the green garlic, poblano, avocado, lime juice, and salt, then pile on top of the bread. Sprinkle with quicos (corn nuts) before serving.

Beverage Pairing: Start the day with a fresh squeezed juice or warm team to best compliment the bright flavors of the avocado toast
