Ingredients  

  • 1 good quality sourdough baguette thinly sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • The juice from 1 lime
  • 1 scallion finely chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese
  • 3 tbsp pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tbsp extravirgin olive oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Slice the baguette, brush with olive oil and toast in the oven for 10 minutes, or until its color turns into a beautiful golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the topping – cut the avocado in small cubes and mix them in a bowl with the chopped red onion, lime juice, chopped scallion, the olive oil, salt and pomegranate seeds. Mix carefully to avoid crushing the pomegranate seeds.
