Method

  • Place the chopped peppers and onions into a small roasting tin. Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt and mix well. Place into a hot oven (gas 9/200) for about 15-20 minutes, until the vegetables are soft and the onion is beginning to caramelise slightly at the edges.
  • Make the guacamole by scooping the flesh of the avocado into a food processor, along with the chopped garlic, chilli, olive oil, and lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Blend on high power to create a smooth creamy guacamole.
  • Cut the toast in half width ways. Place the slices of toast side by side on a plate, scoop on a generous helping of guacamole on each slice, and then cover with the roasted vegetables.
