Asparagus, avocado and roasted tomatoes tartines

 

No pain, no tartines

 

Ollie and I usually have breakfast no matter the time we wake up. It is, after all, the most important meal of the day. Sometimes we want something sweet, usually peanut butter and banana toasts for me (very American, I know!) and cereals for Ollie. Sometimes, we crave something savoury and we can go for full vegan English breakfast, or for any type of savoury tartines (tartine means slice of bread in French). 

This recipe is really easy and actually, you can make “tartines” with anything you have at home and that goes well together. We used asparagus, avocado and cherry tomatoes as we had some, but sometimes it can be just roasted tomatoes and basil, some hummus and beetroot, avocado and grapefruit, tapenade and chargrilled artichokes etc. 

The crunch of the asparagus, the sweetness of the roasted tomatoes, the creaminess of the avocado and the cheese and the lightness of the bread give this recipe amazing texture and flavour. 

Try it, you won’t regret it ! 

The only advice we could give you is to try and use avocados that come from Spain- if you live in Europe – when in season, and not to use avocados too much in your cooking because of the social and environmental issues that come with this amazing fruit.

Also, when we made this recipe, asparagus were in season so again, if you buy fresh asparagus, buy them when they are in season – late April to late June. 

Bon appétit!
