There’s been a subtle shift in the weather the past few days here in the Bay Area. It’s taking longer for the fog to burn off in the morning and there’s a slight chill in the air. I’m not ready for this shift. I want to hold onto to Summer for as LONG AS POSSIBLE. I feel like I didn’t have enough outdoor eating time the past few months What gives??!
I was gifted a gigantic flat of avocados by the California Avocado Commission (THANK YOU!!) last week and couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate other than having a leisurely Sunday BBQ at my house. The stars aligned and my friend Gaby (author of Absolutely Avocados) stopped by with her husband for a late lunch this past weekend and I made this Grilled Steak & Avocado Flatbread with my Apple Avocado Salad and Spiked Blueberry Lemonade. I also made an awesome dairy-free chocolate pudding (with avocados!) that I’ll share next week. As you can imagine, it’s avocado central in my house right now.
For this flatbread, I used my favorite no-knead pizza dough. The dough gets grilled, avocado gets smashed on top followed by grilled steak, charred onions and juicy roasted tomatoes rest on top. I finished with a healthy squeeze of fresh lime juice to add a nice tang. It’s like avocado toast meets pizza meets fajitas. In other words, it was GOOD. I felt good to impress such an avocado aficionado
