Zucchini and Avocado Bruschetta

The word “simple” evokes a sort of magical aura to me. Ironically enough, when I hear simple, I start to think of the most elaborate feeling of comfort and stripped, uncluttered bliss. The image of white makes an appearance, the sound of a Zero 7 track, the smell of freshly cut grass and the feel of clean crisp soft sheets underneath me. All this imagery by one term.

They say the best things in life are the simpler moments and fleeting emotions, here are some of mine:
– Seeing an old friend and still having the same rapport.
- Swimming naked.
- Receiving a letter by a loved one through snail mail, a couple of weeks late.
- Getting a postcard.
- When the right song plays at exactly the right moment.
- Finding money I misplaced and forgot about.


- The sound of rain on a tin roof.
- Completing a project.

- Bein with someone who understands the words behind your silence.

- Playing outside when the sun cooperates.
- Feeling exhausted after a workout.

- Uncontrollable laughter.
- Entering a house and smelling something cooking in the kitchen.

When I think of simple food, staples come to mind, good multigrain bread, olive oil, vegetables, herbs, cheese, etc, produce that you can find everywhere and that doesn’t need much alteration before eating it.
And what better way to compliment simple food but with great clean crockery. I love Muji because it has that uncluttered, practical and beautiful design, which only the Japanese can achieve. Here I use, there great flip out rubber bowl that’s easy to clean, a very helpful transparent chopping board and of course, my favourite, a small white plate. The perfect canvas.

Here is a quick and simple snack that I made with what I had in my fridge.

Zucchini and Avocado Bruschetta

Slice half a zucchini, in thin slices, fry off in Filippo Berio olive oil , add some chopped garlic. Slice half an avocado. In a bowl toss the cooked zucchini with parsley leaves, salt and pepper and lemon juice.

Take a thick slice of multi grain bread and toast in hot pan. Spread a tbsp of ricotta on the bread, season, top with sliced avocado, zucchini, more parsley and some lemon rinds.

      One word can define this dish > WOW!

      Anyway, i was lucky cos when i watched the video on how you made this dish, all the ingredients that are needed are in our fridge so i decided to make one. And when i already tasted it, i almost forgot my name.(but i’m not being exaggerated) Hehe. Anyway, Erwan can you just please have some more recipes that you can put some ricotta cheese? Thanks. Looking forward to see, learn and watch your next posts.

      - Buon Appetite!

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
