Avocado Butter with Tomato Relish on Focaccia


For the tomato relish:

15 sun-blushed tomatoes

2 garlic cloves, crushed

Large handful of fresh basil leaves

Large handful of fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped

About 2 T extra virgin olive oil

For the avocado butter:

2 ripe avocados

Juice of 1/2 lime

1-2 dashes of Tabasco sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

4 small foccacia breads, halved


Make the tomato relish:

- Put the tomatoes and garlic into a bowl. Stack 6 basil leaves together, roll into a cigar shape and slice into thin strips. Repeat with the remaining basil leaves. Mix the basil and thyme into the tomatoes. Stir in enough oil to make a relish texture.

Make the avocado butter:

- Slice the avocado in half lengthwise and remove the stone. Peel the avocado, then chop the flesh and put in a food processor. Add the lime juice, Tabasco sauce to taste and season with salt and pepper.

  Process until smooth.

- Cut each foccacia in half width ways. Spread a layer of avocado butter on the halves, top with tomato relish and cover with the remaining halves.
