Avocado toast with ratatouille and heura
This is an easy and fast recipe that you can make for one or two people. Ratatouille is a Spanish dish that consists of a vegetable stir-fry. To prepare it you can follow the next steps:
- Cut a zucchini, bell pepper, and half an onion into medium-size pieces.
- Heat a pan and add a splash of olive oil then add all the vegetables.
- When the vegetables become softer, stir the mix to prevent them from sticking to the pan. After approximately three minutes the vegetables should appear golden-brown. Add some tomatoes to enhance the color and season it with salt and pepper. When the vegetables and tomatoes are ready, remove from the heat and let it rest.
- In another pan, add some olive oil to cook the heura for five minutes.
- While the heura is cooking, toast some bread and slice an avocado. Add a little raw onion.
- Finally, add some ratatouille and heura to one slice of toast. On the other slice of toast, add the avocado and season it with olive oil, salt, and pepper, the raw onion and heura. Now your toast is ready to serve and enjoy!
