Simple & Delicious

Sometimes a long day full of hustle-and-bustle and to-and-fro is best ended with a meal that requires little effort.  On days like this, I let the avocado guide my palette. The avocado is a versatile, compact little guy that makes simple leaves and vegetables a hearty, creamy meal.

I drizzled the leaves with the last of my balsamic truffle oil and smeared some organic, stone-ground mustard with apple cider vinegar on the edge of the plate.  The balsamic truffle oil is amazing! I nabbed it from a gourmet holiday basket my mother received last year, and I haven’t spotted it at any local grocery store since. I am semi-obsessed with truffle oil, but I rarely cook with it since it’s so expensive. Until we meet again, dear love!

I picked up some olives and sun-dried tomatoes for a salty fix. Never disappoints.

A perfect end to my day.

That’s it! It’s simple, it’s clean, and has a high glow-factor.
