Just a little Crostini Weenie


So I don't have a themed song for this week's post BUT I will leave you with my new obsession for the week. I love the original song by Zella Day but this mix is also amazing. Enjoy!

Ever since I was a kid, I was always that weird one who LOVED spinach. All my friends would fight and complain but I would ALWAYS ask for more. I know. I was that kid. I was also that kid who would happily drink a glass of plain milk every day. Anyways... I love spinach. Whenever I used to make omelets for my mom, she used to complain that she could never find the egg because I had overloaded it with so much spinach.

So when I was living alone in Sunnyvale, I decided one week I was going to be super healthy and make meals filled with tons of vegetables. Obviously, this being me, ended up just an obscene amount of spinach and mushrooms. That's about it.

This recipe is super easy and delicious. Plus it barely takes any time to make! Enjoy!

Spinach Avocado Crostini

Ingredients:

1 sourdough baguette

  • a few handfuls baby spinach leaves
  • 2 handfuls mushrooms, sliced
  • Component 2

  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 Avocado, diced in larger chunks
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Directions:

    Mix the avocado chunks with some balsamic vinaigrette in a bowl and keep to the side.

    Sauté the red onions, mushrooms, and spinach in some more balsamic vinaigrette or red wine (your choice ;) ) until the spinach has wilted and the mushrooms look like they have been cooked through.

    Slice the baguette and top with the avocados and spinach mixtures. Enjoy!
