Broiled Avocado

Broiled Avocado
Serves 1-2

I'm going to call this the LA version of Avocado Toast - a little more Asian inspired and without the carbs. This is the ideal lunch or dinner for #MeatlessMonday or a great way to fancify leftover takeout rice. 

Juice 1 lemon
1-2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1-2 tablespoons low sodium vegetable stock, dry wine or water
1 avocado, halved and seeded
Extra virgin olive oil
Sesame seeds, toasted pepitas, sugar snaps, chives and parsley, optional garnish

In a small saucepan simmer lemon juice, soy sauce and stock/wine/water until reduced by half. While reducing, broil avocado.

Preheat broiler. Place avocado cut side down a sheet tray and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Broil for 2-3 minutes until just charred, flip and repeat.

Top avocado with soy liquid and garnish as desired.
