smashed avocado on dukkah sourdough - The Clever Carrot
I first came across the avocado and dukkah combination while living in Australia .I personally like to make this mid-morning, especially if I’ve skipped breakfast and need to eat something fast (I’m not fun when I’m hungry). The good-for- you fats help to regulate blood sugar levels, while the natural protein and fiber leaves you feeling nice and full, unlike most quick snacks. The buttery texture over the warm bread is to die for.

Summer Watermelon Salad
If you’ve never tried watermelon in a salad before it’s an unexpected delight. Initially, I was never drawn to watermelon salads, thinking that they would be too sweet. But the cubes soak up all of the tangy vinaigrette which mellows its natural sweetness. The breads adds a wonderful crunch and contrast in texture. A delicious summer recipe!
