Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta

Our Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta is a handy stand by when you are entertaining and want to fill your guests up on some delicious and healthy food before the main course arrives.  Avocado is incredibly filling and healthy, and tomatoes are full of Vitamin C and especially juicy in the summertime.  We have used coriander in this recipe but if your taste buds swing more towards basil, that is also an option.  Likewise, the recipe can be altered to use the bread of your choice - whether you are a spelt fan or a plain baguette lover - you decide!  The key is to toast the bread, immediately dollop on the tomato avocado mixture and serve so your guests can enjoy the hot and cold combo of flavours!
