 Gluten Free Avocado Bread

This bread is loaded with fiber, which is a huge plus. I love that this recipe is so “free:” Gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free. It provides a good source of antioxidant vitamin C (15% DV) as well as copper (10% DV), an essential nutrient helpful to the immune system. It also provides a high potency (more than 100% DV) of several B-Vitamins, which the body needs to fight disease, including 250% DV B1, 190% DV B2, 100% DV B6 and 180% DV B12.

Ingredients

Serves: 4
cup  coconut flour
Tbsp.  psyllium husks
Tbsp.  nutritional yeast
Tbsp.  coconut oil, melted (use olive oil if you prefer)
1/2  tsp.  truffle salt, (use sea salt if you prefer)
1/4  tsp.  ground black pepper
cups  just-boiled water
  ripe, Fresh California Avocado, divided (mash 1/2 to go into the flatbread, and slice the remaining 1/2 for topping)
Tbsp.  avocado cooking oil
1/4  tsp.  sea salt, or to taste
  large heirloom tomato, sliced
1 1/2  cups  microgreens or baby arugula

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

Instructions

  1. Mix coconut flour, husks, and nutritional yeast in a medium bowl. Mix in the coconut or olive oil and the seasoning.
  2. Add the just-boiled water (best is JUST off the boil) and combine well with a wooden spoon.
  3. As soon as the dough becomes tolerable to handle (not too hot), gently fold in mashed avocado. Use your hands to gently form it into a ball.
  4. Place the ball on a sheet of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll out to ¼-inch thick. Cut into quarters or slices.
  5. Heat the cooking oil (medium heat) in a non-stick or cast-iron skillet.
  6. Fry the flatbreads for about 2 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned. Turn heat down to medium, flip to cook for another minute or two.
  7. Sprinkle with sea salt and keep flatbreads warm in the oven until ready to serve.
  8. Top with remaining sliced avocado, sliced tomato, and microgreens.
