Few years back I had a golden opportunity to see one more continent in the southern hemisphere, yes South Africa, I was accompanying my husband on business trip for three weeks, It was a perfect holiday, smashing adventure and ample of time to relax.
No cooking and no baking.
Although we were provided with a fantastic serviced apartment still I didn’t bother to carry my lentils and masala box. But believe me we were not starving, On the contrary It was one of our best culinary journeys that we experienced.
With such an astronomical array of worldly cuisine at our fingertips, one finds every excuse to escape the heat of the kitchen in Randburg close to Jo burg.
Breakfast and dinner was always a lavish affair as my hubby wouldn’t dare to compromise his food for work, we both damned care about the calories, but my inner core of the heart would not dare me to gorge on heavy lunches. I was trying to rely more on natural food and more of fruits.
So one day casually strolling I bumped into a delicatessen serving freshly baked bread with a variety of sandwich filling, I came across this wonderful grilled sandwich generously topped with avocado and grilled veggies of ones choice, it was so delicious that I got hooked and I ate it every alternative day for three weeks. I guess u will also love it if u are die hard fan of avocados like me
So lets not waste time dwelling on my past memories. Roll up your sleeves and fire up your oven and have your grill pan ready.
1 ½ cup plain flour
1tsp- instant dry yeast
½ tsp sugar
1 cup warm milk /water.
Bell peppers- Green, red and yellow
Eggplant ( optional)
Salt and pepper for seasoning
Bread- Mix together flour ,yeast, salt, sugar and gently knead to a soft dough adding warm water. keep kneading for at least 5 mins, more the better.
Keep the dough cover in warm place for 1 ½ hours.After the dough has risen double the size.Punch the excess air and shape the dough in to a desired shape and brush the top of the loaf with milk and sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds (optional) .
Preheat the oven to 180 c and bake for 30 mins. To check if the bread is baked , tap the bottom of the loaf and if u hear a hollow sound that means your bread is done.
Avocado dip or guacamole.
Half the avocado and mash it with fork , Add lemon juice . Season it with salt and pepper.
Grill the veggies in grill pan and season them with salt and pepper.
Slice the bread , toast it and generously top the bread with guacamole, layer the grilled veggies, and cheeseeeeee !!!!!!
Enjoy and savor it.
