08 Dec Avocado Tonnato
Fooddeco teamed up with Avocados from Peru (AFP) to celebrate the love of avocados with recipes to inspire you this Holiday Season!
2 avocados (1 extra to create the avocado stars)
basil leaves: additionally
pepper and salt to taste
Ingredients for the tonnato sauce:
1 tin tuna (160 gram), good quality
lemon, juice and zest
50 ml water
1 tbsp. capers
3 tbsp. mayonnaise
3 anchovy filets, canned
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius fan.
Slice the baguette as thin as possible and arrange the slices on a baking sheet or oven rack (covered with parchment paper) in a single layer and drizzle with olive oil on both sides. Season with pepper
and salt to taste. Toast until brown and crispy for approximately 5 to 8 minutes. Flip half through baking.
Meanwhile combine all ingredients for the tonnato sauce in a (hand) blender and add pepper and salt to taste. Cut the avocados in halves and remove the skin and pit. Slice the avocado halves horizontally in thin slices and fan out on a big size Christmas themed serving platter. Add the tonnato sauce, top with basil leaves, pepper and salt and drizzle with olive oil. Optionally add some stars made out ofavocado slices and a star shaped cookie shaper.
Serve with the baguette chips.
