Meatless Monday: Grilled Corn, Tomato, & Avocado Bread Cups

Makes 6 Servings

  • 6 slices sprouted bread
  • 1 ear corn, shucked and cleaned
  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • ½ avocado, mashed
  • 2 Tbs. grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 tsp. each of table salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil (divided use)
  • 1 Tbs. cilantro, for garnish (optional)
  • Cooking spray

  1. Preheat the oven to 375oF.
  2. Spray 6 cups of a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  3. Cut the edges of the bread then use a rolling pin to flatten the bread. Once it is flat, press bread slices into muffin cups. Bake it in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until crispy.
  4. Heat a grill pan over medium heat and gently brush it with ½ tablespoon of oil. Place tomatoes and corn on the pan. Let everything grill for 8-10 minutes or until the corn is grilled evenly and tomatoes are soft. Using a paring knife, cut the kernels off the cob into a small bowl.
  5. Meanwhile, heat another pan with the remaining ½ tablespoon of oil and sauté onion until it is soft.
  6. Combine corn kernels and tomatoes into the pan with sautéed onions. Add in mashed avocado and parmesan cheese.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Add fillings evenly into bread cups, sprinkle more parmesan cheese if desired. Bake for additional 3-5 minutes.
  9. Garnish with cilantro before serving.
